    Hugo Award-winning author Charles Stross takes listeners into the near future for this breathtaking thriller. As head of the Rule 34 Squad, Detective Inspector Liz Kavanaugh keeps a close eye on Internet activity, monitoring whether people are participating in harmless fantasies or engaging in illegal activities. When three criminal spammers are murdered, it’s up to Liz to determine how the victims were connected. If she can’t figure it out, more people will surely die.

    I love following the threads in a Charlie Stoss novel just to see the inventive ways he comes up with to create the final collision. This collision is superb! The accents are jarring at first for my american ears, and we have to be imersed in the world of internet policing, but it is worth the wait, and I know a bit more about where from and how all this %$#!?(grrr)*!!! spam I get evey day is coming from.

    This is hard SciFi in a world that could could happen in our lifetimes, no space cowboys and no fae pricesses. A little slow start getting in, but like I said, american ears.... Worth a read for CS fans.

    Behind the seemingly innocuous façade of St Mary's, a different kind of historical research is taking place. They don't do 'time-travel' - they 'investigate major historical events in contemporary time'. Maintaining the appearance of harmless eccentrics is not always within their power - especially given their propensity for causing loud explosions when things get too quiet. Meet the disaster-magnets of St Mary's Institute of Historical Research as they ricochet around History.

    Story

    No spoilers here but the title of this book truthfully sums up the story quite well. The narration is very well done. This book kept me up late and I have listened to several parts again because they were so funny.

    In New York, there's a troll under the Brooklyn Bridge, a boggle in Central Park, and a beautiful vampire in a penthouse on the Upper East Side. Of course, most humans are oblivious to this, but Cal Leandros is only half-human. His father's dark lineage is the stuff of nightmares - and he and his entire otherworldly race are after Cal.

    Patrick Lawler could bring the encyclopedia britanica to life with his performances. It is a tremenous treat for all of us urban fantasy readers to discover him as the voice of Cal Leandros. Nightlife is a great start to a long series, I'm thinking a little Dresden, but a bit less mature and gets quite a bit wacky when the real baddie pops in about half way through the book (don't want to spoil it!) A fun listen. Hope we get to hear the whole series!
