It's February 1863, and the newly opened Metropolitan Railway is the toast of London. Among the travelers tonight are the vampire, Lord Underwood, and his guardian, Ben Flinch. But they aren't traveling alone, for Underwood and Flinch have been discovered by a group intent on their destruction.
Disturbing the Devil is a journey into the smoky depths of the Victorian Underground; a stand-alone short story in the Underwood and Flinch universe, written and read by four-time Parsec Award-winning author Mike Bennett. Expect blood.

Love the writing and performance! Creating humorous horror is definitely a difficult task but also able to create a talented performance is genius! I rarely write a review but to tell you the truth I cannot get enough of Mike Bennett and his Underwood and Flinch Chronicles!!
I hope Audible gets more books in this series. I love that the story reader is the actual author, and he does a very good job reading his story. Usually, I think authors that do so are making a mistake. Not the case here, I assure you. My only minor criticism is that there is no clear rooting interest in this story. The vampire is not wholly sympathetic, neither are his opponents.
I've really enjoyed Mike Bennett's podcast stories over the years. His stories are great, and his narration is awesome; absolutely some of the best work in the Podoshpere! "Disturbing the Devil" is yet another example of Mike's attention to the craft of great storytelling.
Bennett's work is a great addition to the vampire genre. His characters and plot are well written. Even better, his narration is engaging and masterful, not only in giving each character their own voice, but in creating drama and suspense as the plot develops.
Do yourself a favor and give this a listen!
