It is one of the best books by Mr. Card.
Spoiler: in the end when the main character reached moon.
It's a must read for all Ender's game fans.
This as a crime novel is an amazing listen. I would definitely refer this book because it has everything you need ask for in a book. It has great characters. A great partnership like Batman and Robin with less superhero, yet hero nonetheless, action. Great Story building and crime solving. The narration is also to the point. Thick British accent at times but fits right well into the story.
Strike was the best part about the story. He is the main character but what makes him my favorite is that he is very 'human'. His background story makes him very strong yet very fragile.
So by now everyone probably knows that Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym of J.K. Rowling. If you have read The Casual Vacancy by her then you will know that it has almost same kind of diction used.
It starts out slow but it turns into a great story. Keeps you on your toes the after half way mark. In the first half, story is developed and characters are all settling in to place. In the end, you can't wait for the second book. It's a great listen if you like books of adventure and adolescent growth with lots of magic and music.
He has a great voice technique. All characters have distinct voices and you will get lost in the story, the way he tells it.
One of the best books out there.
