    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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I have recommended this audiobook to everyone I can think of who reads fantasy fiction. The writing and story are great, and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith's reading is so good, I hear his voice narrating in my head when I'm reading the print books. As far as I'm concerned, Peter Grant sounds exactly like Kobna Holdbrook-Smith.


    Have you listened to any of Kobna Holdbrook-Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have all of the Peter grant books as audio books, and, based on his excellent performances of this series, I plan to buy other books that Kobna Holdbrook-Smith has narrated.

    Body and soul. The song. That's what London constable and sorcerer's apprentice Peter Grant first notices when he examines the corpse of Cyrus Wilkins, part-time jazz drummer and full-time accountant, who dropped dead of a heart attack while playing a gig at Soho's 606 Club. The notes of the old jazz standard are rising from the body - a sure sign that something about the man's death was not at all natural but instead supernatural.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed reading the first book in this series, and was eager to read the next book. I'm glad I bought the audiobook instead. Kobna Holdbrook-Smith's performance made a good story great. I'll be buying the next audiobook in this series as soon as I finish this review...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
