Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of From a Drood to a Kill comes the next Secret Histories adventure.

There is a man who gets away with murder. A man who specializes in removing the problems from other people's lives by killing the people who cause those problems. He operates from the darkest shadows of the hidden world, coming and going unseen. No one knows who he is, just his nomme du muerte: Dr. DOA.

This demented doc has poisoned Eddie Drood. Whatever is coursing through his veins seems to be immune to magic cures and treatments. But that's not going to stop Eddie from finding the killer and whoever hired him - and giving them both a taste of their own medicine.

    "This is the first half of a two parter"

    Simon Green has a habit of ending his Drood books on a cliff hanger. this is the only series he does it on and I don't know why .

    "Half a book"

    I like the Drood books and the NIghtside series, but this one is almost a waste of time. The story gets 2 stars only because I usually like this series.

    Gideon Emery is good as usual.

    The first and last chapters are pretty good. In-between is a lot of nothing, rework of
    old plots. Be warned, the story does not end with this book. It is continued in the next book.

    "Disappointing addition to the series"

    I have enjoyed all the prior Secret Histories books. SPOILER ALERT: Each of the books was complete in it's self and came to a satisfactory resolution. This book, however, fails to resolve the basic story line and ends on a cliff hanger. It is a disappointing addition to an outstanding series.

    Story
    "Phoned This One In"

    Maybe Simon R. Green is tired of the Drood series. This particular offering seems to have been phoned in. Many of the lines are essentially lifted from the other books verbatim. I'm a fan of Green's writing style. Of all of his various series, the Droods are my favorite, but while certain plot aspects were very unexpected, most of the book was a mish-mashing together of previous Drood stories. All of that being said, this was still an energetic tale full of action and mayhem. For fans, the story provides the expected action and excitement associated with the Droods, but as one listens, it's hard not to feel as though Green himself is over it all. Old fan of Green's or new, Dr. DOA is still worth the credit.

    "Good but not the best"

    It was a good listen but the plot barely went anywhere until the end. It was mostly a book of filler with a few plot points. Still fun, but definitely on the lower end of the series.

    "Boo!!!"

    For such a successful (and until now...respected) author to do something is trite and disrespectful for $$$. This is not TV, and the story is not advertised as a serial. Awful. Awful. Awful. So disappointed!!!
