Kissing the Demons: Joe Plantagenet Murder Mysteries, Book 3 | [Kate Ellis]

Kissing the Demons: Joe Plantagenet Murder Mysteries, Book 3

Thirteen Torland Place was the scene of five terrible murders back in the 19th century, and was also linked to the more recent disappearance of two teenage girls. When a student living in the house is found murdered, DI Joe Plantagenet wonders whether her death has anything to do with the house’s grim history. Then other, similar deaths come to light and he fears a ruthless killer is at work in the ancient Yorkshire city of Eborby; a killer who deprives each victim of one of their five senses.

Publisher's Summary

Thirteen Torland Place was the scene of five terrible murders back in the 19th century, and was also linked to the more recent disappearance of two teenage girls. When a student living in the house is found murdered, DI Joe Plantagenet wonders whether her death has anything to do with the house’s grim history.

Then other, similar deaths come to light and he fears a ruthless killer is at work in the ancient Yorkshire city of Eborby; a killer who deprives each victim of one of their five senses. Could the deaths be connected to Obediah Shrowton, an executed murderer whose presence still seems to linger in the house? Or is there a yet more sinister and dangerous explanation?

    Story
    "Excellent British Mystery Author"
    If you could sum up Kissing the Demons in three words, what would they be?

    Eerie, Enthralling, and Twisting


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kissing the Demons?

    Didn't read with the purpose of IDing most memorable moments, but enjoyed the opening sequence at the party, the oujii board message and the carpet search.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Choose any one of the above three as my favorite. Liked the twist with person who thought he was "Death".


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, just generally enjoyable read (listen)


    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Ellis has a number of published mysteries. Would appreciate more available on audio than are available currently. thank you.

    Story
    "Monotonous Narration"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Kissing the Demons to be better than the print version?

    A Bit of a nonsensical question really, but as I don't have the printed version nor do I have the time to sit and read it, I cannot compare


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Joe Plantagenet, although sometimes the continued references to his past can become irksome


    What didn’t you like about Gordon Griffin’s performance?

    I have been irked before with Gordon Griffin and what sounds like lack of preparation in parts of some audio books he has narrated. I am half way through Kissing the Demons and it is hard going. Mr Griffin's narration is slow and monotonous with little change in voice between characters and descriptive text. I am finding it unusually difficult (with a Kate Ellis book) to get drawn in.


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

    Unusually no, this is the first book from Kate Elllis that I haven't been desperate to listen to the conclusion


    Any additional comments?

    I really like Kate Ellis books and in particular the concept of Joe Plantagenet with its spooky undertones. This on I have to say is not as good as I had hoped, but then I haven't finished yet so maybe there's hope. I am finding the extensive descriptive text and in particular revising JP past life on more than one occasion very annoying.
