    Story

    For several years now, I have studiously avoided any and all of the current books involving vampires, ghosts, werewolves, spirits and similar creatures in mystery and other genres. I didn't read horror stories, period.

    Then I read some member reviews of "Midnight Riot," and thought I'd give it a try, despite the dead, undead and non-human monsters. What a revelation! This book gives the reader a rollicking ride through modern day London in the course of a murder investigation. It is fast-paced, engrossing and hilarious. I laughed out loud repeatedly when listening. In addition, I learned a bit of history about various sites in and around London.

    Constable Peter Grant, having just finished his probationary period with the Metropolitan Police, interviews a witness to murder, only to find out that his witness is the ghost of a man who died 120 years before. As a result of his being able to see and converse with the ghost, he is recruited by Inspector Thomas Nightingale to work in a unit (made up of only Nightingale and Peter) whose "beat" is anything non-human, undead or uncanny. Turns out Nightingale is a wizard, and Peter becomes his apprentice. Now, sweep all ideas of Harry Potter out of your mind -- this is not a Hogwarts type of story.

    As Peter, Nightingale and Constable Lesley May, a friend of Peter's, work their way through the mystery. they encounter a great deal of violence, a number of River Spirits, ghosts, vampires, and general confusion. Peter Grant is a lovely character, who is smarter than he realizes, and who looks at London and its residents with a jaundiced eye and very ironic comment.

    Other reviews give a much more detailed description of the book, and I refer you to those other descriptions. I want to talk about the narrator, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith. He is perfect! He gives Peter's character just the right accent and attitude, that of a young mixed race man from a working class background who has a breezy attitude and many a smart remark to make. Then he makes Nightingale a well educated gentleman of at least a century earlier. Male and female voices, London accents, German, Indian, Middle Eastern, African, Caribbean and Japanese voices are all wonderful. KHS brings the book to life beautifully.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • "The First of a Superior Series"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I purchased The Mermaids Singing partially because of the reviews I read on Audible, but probably more because Val McDermid seemed to be the favorite mystery author of Mikael Blomqvist in The Millenium Trilogy (The Girl With .....). Now that I have read all of the Tony Hill/Carol Jordan books to date (a new one is due later this year), I felt it was time to write a review of the first book.

    McDermid writes wonderful prose that makes her characters come alive -- all of them, not just the two major characters. I won't try to tell you about the plot, since many other reviews do that. But the development of the plot, along with the minutiae of each character's life and personality, make for excellent reading. McDermid creates a tight, incredibly tense story that keeps you reading, sometimes even when you don't want to.

    If you are averse to graphic depictions of violence and perversion, you may want to skip this series. But if that's not a problem, I highly recommend these books. In Tony Hill, McDermid has created a flawed and damaged character who still manages to live in the world and work for the forces of good as a Profiler, expert at his work because of his scarred past. The relationship of Tony and Carol Jordan, police inspector, is so tentative and slow moving that you sometimes could scream, but you keep waiting for it to progress. The pair pursues serial killers in plots that will keep you on the edge of your seat with your jaw clenched.

    It is important that you read the Tony Hill/Carol Jordan books in the order in which they were published, since these are not stand alone novels. The characters and their relationships and pasts are developed over the course of the series, and reading out of order makes it more difficult to follow some developments.

    The bodies of four men have been discovered in the town of Bradfield. Enlisted to investigate is criminal psychologist Tony Hill. Even for a seasoned professional, the series of mutilation sex murders is unlike anything he's encountered before. But profiling the psychopath is not beyond him. Hill's own past has made him the perfect man to comprehend the killer's motives. It's also made him the perfect victim. A game has begun for the hunter and the hunted.

    Story

    This third book in the Peter Grant series is the best so far. Peter now has a friend and co-worker in the Folly, Constable Lesley May (former victim of magic and now learning to be a practitioner). While their boss Nightingale is searching for the illegally trained and unlicensed wizards in Britain in order to catch the "Faceless Man," Peter and Lesley encounter ghosts, semi-feys, fairies, elves, goblins, River spirits, a rogue FBI agent from the US, and all the regular (ordinary?) characters.

    As usual, the story is told with great panache, wit, and humor, providing many laugh-out-loud moments. Author Ben Aaronovitch displays in these books an almost unbelievable breadth of imagination, and delights me when he comes up with a really fresh twist on the existence and coexistence of magical and non-magical elements in current-day London. His inventiveness and humor sometimes call to mind the very different, but also wildly inventive, humor of Jasper Fforde in the Thursday Next novels.

    I am already impatient for the next installment of Peter Grant's adventures. Long may he live to have many, many more.

    It begins with a dead body at the far end of Baker Street tube station, all that remains of American exchange student James Gallagher - and the victim's wealthy, politically powerful family is understandably eager to get to the bottom of the gruesome murder. The trouble is, the bottom - if it exists at all - is deeper and more unnatural than anyone suspects...except, that is, for London constable and sorcerer's apprentice Peter Grant.

Daniel Mcafee's greatest hits:
  • The Black Echo: Harry Bosch Series, Book 1

    "What a Terrific Book"

    Overall

    I love Connelly's Bosch novels and normally, an author of gets better with age. Having said that, I wasn't expecting this first book in the Bosch series to be as good as the later novels in the series.

    This book is probably one of my top 2 or 3 favorites!!

    Connelly manages to weave together a very intriguing and complex story!!

    I kept saying to myself, "This Story is going to have SOOOOOO many holes", but he masterfully ties up all the loose ends.

    The reader does a good job as well.

    Highly recommended!!

  • The Black Ice: Harry Bosch Series, Book 2: Harry Bosch, Book 2

    "Good Listen"

    Overall

    I'm a Michael Connelly fan so I couldn't wait to listen to these first Bosch novels recently added to the Audible Library.

    The first book, The Black Echo, was TERIFFIC!

    This one is good, but definitely not as good as the first.

    Like the first novel, there were a lot of complexities in this story, and Connelly somehow managed to tie them up nicely.

    But this story simply didn't grab me like the first book and other Bosch novels.

    I would rank this one in the bottom half of Connelly novels I've listened to, but the below average Connelly novel is still above average compared to other offerings.

    The story is still "can't put down" at times - and a recommended listen.

  • Creole Belle: A Dave Robicheaux Novel, Book 19

    "One of the most entertaining in the series"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I must qualify my review by disclosing that I am a huge James Lee Burke fan - he's one of my favorite authors of all time. Likewise, I love the Dave Robicheaux series.

    This book is heavy on Clete, meaning a large chunk of the story deals with Clete Purcell and a new character, who turns out may be his daughter. While there are some issues with this new "daughter" character, to the extent she detracts from the story, the big role Clete plays in this story is fun. The dialogue throughout is TERRIFIC!

    As other reviewers have mentioned, there is a lot to this story, with several relevant story lines throughout. While a lot of these stories are in fact formulaic with JLB, there are a few twists in this one that I enjoyed.

    Likewise, I am not typically a fan of authors going overboard on describing the aesthetics in their scenes, but JLB is by far the best I have ever read in this area. He is the master, and it amazes me every time how much I love it when he does it.

    As usual, Will Patton is fabulous. He is one of the best in the business and JLB writing is simply made for Will Patton.

    Highly Recommended, if you haven't got it - GET IT!!


  • In the Morning I'll Be Gone: Troubles Trilogy, Book 3 (Detective Sean Duffy, Book 3)

    "One of my Favorites"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    McKinty is and has been one of my Top 10 favorite Authors, so I anxiously await each book. This one did not disappoint.

    While the "Dead" series is my favorite among McKinty's repeating character serials, I have grown fond of the Sean Duffy series, this being the 3rd so far.

    Duffy is a very thoughtful and interesting character who is always trying to gain a perspective of life, the good, bad and evil, and his place in the whole soupy mess. McKinty's character development reminds me a lot of another of my all time favorites, James Lee Burke, in the way he develops characters and describes the environment around him - all of which keeps your mind moving - very rarely letting a story drag along in tedium. McKinty does so in mostly Ireland, Scotland and England based stories and Burke does so in Americana based stories, but they are both among the best.

    Gerard Doyle is likewise a great narrator and is the perfect choice for McKinty books.

    I highly recommend this book and as equally important, McKinty books in general. I do like the Sean Duffy character as well and I expect more in the series based upon how this story develops and ends. Stay tuned...

    Highly Recommended!!

  • "The Journey not the Destination"

    13 of 14 helpful votes

    I have read every word the man has published (that I was able to find) and this one really got to me. When one reads Burke, the plot is nearly superfluous as he paints flawless dioramas of life, its beauty, its evil, its life-giving and its life-taking and many of the nuanced, indelible connections twix the two.
    I used to think his ending were weak. But now I understand there are no 'endings', just pauses where one can reflect or suffer.
    His brief description of withdrawal from drug/alcohol addiction was crystalline in its accuracy. My soul ached as I read it.
    One of the few authors where it absolutely does not matter where in his bibliography you start. There are simply pauses in between.
