I would recommend this particular book to someone who already likes urban fantasy and who is an anglophile like me. Peter Gant's London is modern with an under current of magic and magical beings. The humor is definitely British and dry.
Definitely the main character's pursuit of a ghost with an agenda for revenge and murder.
The scenes with Molly, Inspector Nightingale and the dog are some of my favorites. I wasn't happy about what happened to one of the main characters, but it did provide an interesting twist.
Near the end of the book at the Opera house was a section where I couldn't stop the recording. The narrator is excellent and was one reason I liked this book so much. He does a wonderful job of voicing all the characters with their own distinctive style.
There are a lot of urban fantasies out there. This is a little different spin and I will be reading more of the series or purchasing the audiobook.
50 something, retired professional, mother, grandmother, wife.
the story is inventive. a bit messy at times. what really makes this book good is the mild sarcastic snarkyness of the main character. if you like that sort of thing, which i do. I would listen to more, but not at full price.
This is a new writer for me and I definitely will read more. The lead character is so genuine, even the narrator's heavy breathing was appropriate. The storyline was unusual and very well crafted. I'm looking forward to more! I recommend this book highly. And I never write reviews!!!
I would read the next one however I hope the narrator can stop the continuous sharp intakes of breath it is very distracting. Having said that I did like his character voices. The story was full of continuity mistakes but it was original enough to still be entertaining.
This is a fantastic book. The actor nailed each and ever character. Brilliant performance from Kobna Holdbrook-Smith! He was so good I looked up his non-voice acting work.
One of my favorite series of books. Very enjoyable listening.
Very nicely paced story. The characters are very relatable which is saying something given that some of them are supernatural
Peter, the main character is great. All of the characters were great. Holdbrook-Smith does a truly masterful job of creating distinct and relatable voices for those characters.
Not extreme, just very enjoyable.
Addicted to books, especially audiobooks. Read lots and prosper!
The narrator was really good pick for this character. The dry British humor and story spins kept me on my toes. New young Brit cop meets X-files. Good start to new series. I'm going for the next one!
The story is a little weak. The book is short so setting up the setting and world is rushed. This rushed feeling is continuous throughout the book. Dr. Who fans will enjoy this book.
