I'm trying to find some suitable audiobooks for my Dad (64) - he can no longer read. He used to absolutely devour crime novels (John Grisham, Patricia Cornwall, etc), so I'm looking for something similar but "not too complicated". Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately an app isn't an option - too confusing for him. I've found a suitable player but am looking for books / short stories that aren't too complex so he'll hopefully be able to follow them.

My library has audiobooks to loan but very limited. Waterstones also sell audio cds.

He might find collections of short stories easier to follow, rather than whole books.

Try looking on places like ebay.

For someone who enjoyed crime novels like John Grisham and Patricia Cornwell, classics by Agatha Christie or Michael Connelly could be a good fit. They're engaging but not overly complicated. Additionally, consider checking out audiobook reviews or previews to find ones with clear narration.
