"Eddie makes a likable hero, and fans will enjoy following him through this surprisingly complex mystery." (Publishers Weekly)
I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.
I have to say all the books in this series have been pretty good. I like this one best so far. That is because the author finally settles in to tell the story and tones down the constant braggadocio about the droods. That was the only real complaint I had with the series and now that it is better this was a pleasure to read.
The narrarator changed, but I like him better anyway. Mr. Langdon has a better range than the previous person and the voices are not quite so cartoony. So, two thumbs up for this one. If you liked the other books in the series you will definitely enjoy this one as well.
Currently a local truck driver who has hours to listen to my audio books. I am hooked, some of my fellow drivers enjoy them also
Just keeps on getting better with one adventure after another, great cast in this one
Who wouldn't like Eddie but Walker was on the money also
True when they change readers you never know, but Mr Langdon did a great job.We Look forward to listening to him again
Sorry we are truck drivers and listen on the road. Time won't let us do one long listen.As soon as we can we get back to the story
We are looking forward to the next one. Dennis

I would have stayed with Stuart Blinder as narrator. I didn't care for himat first but he grew on me after a couple of books. I am sure Mr. Langdon is a competent narrator, but his voice changed the character of the book series in an unforgivable way.
Stuart Blindor or Marc Vietor
I see that there is yet another narrator change for the next book. I hope his take on the characters is better.
yojne efil look at everything
Yes the voices are so exciting and brings the characters to life.
I cant compare it to any other book. The series is a one of a kind.
Loved it. He throws himself into the story
I would not want to make it into a movie. Movies are great but imagination is better.
He should narrate all the Simon green syfy series.
The first two books in this series had a much more comedic air, on par with The Hitchhiker's Guide, this book was more serious, probably due to the new narrator. This book did not have the pizazz the others had. It t look two chapters before I got past the speaker. If you skip this book in the series you won't miss a beat.
Great book but how did strange go from male to female and now eddie calls him/her ethel after refusing to in the previous books.
I think they try hard to find similar narrator but I still think this one is duller. I prefer the old narrator even if it's just because you get used to it after 2 books.
I love a lot of Simon Green's work. This one is a little contrived, however. Eddie Drood is thrown into this game, but it's not save the world kind of stuff that Droods are known for. It's an OK listen, but not Green's best. Langdon does his usual good job at narration.
