Publisher's Summary

The thrilling third installment to the Edgar-nominated, bestselling series

At the end of Maureen Johnson's New York Times bestselling novel, The Madness Underneath, Rory, Callum and Boo are reeling from the sudden and tragic death of their friend and squad leader, Stephen. The Shadow Cabinet picks up where listeners left off, and now Rory is convinced there must be a way to bring Stephen back. Meanwhile, new dangers arise: Rory's classmate Charlotte is missing, and Jane and her nefarious organization are clearly planning something big - with Rory as their most valuable asset. Time is running out as the ghost squad struggles to protect London and Rory fights to bring Stephen back.

    "Love Nicola Barber's Narration"

    This third installment to The Shades of London series was a long time in coming. I started to forget how much I had enjoyed the first two in the series and my urgency to read The Shadow Cabinet waned. But then I decided to listen to it as one of my October Halloween reads this year, and I fell in love with the story and the characters all over again. I remembered why I wanted to read the third book so badly when I finished the second.

    The Shadow Cabinet is every bit as gripping as the first two books in the series. I love the addition to the team, and I like how we get a glimpse of the larger picture in this book. I sense good things ahead for book four. The death cult headed by Jane, Sid, and Sadie is pretty chilling.

    I've listened to all the books in this series, and I'm still just absolutely in love with the audio versions. The narrator, Nicola Barber, does a fantastic job with all the accents. The reading is varied. The pacing is good, and it's just a joy to listen to.

    "Suspenseful, exciting story, brilliant narration."

    Another excellent story by Maureen Johnson. I was incredibly impressed by Nicola Barber's narration, giving each character a distinct voice, tone, and accent. This is one of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to.

    "What if death was only the beginning?"
    What about Nicola Barber’s performance did you like?

    No spoilers, but STEPHEN.


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

    Conquering death requires a few wayward souls to be sacrificed, consequently letting malevolence take root. Jane's sordid history with the siblings, Sid and Sadie is retold in the gruesome, twisted first chapter. It is with this beginning, that the work Stephen, Callum, and Boo do takes on a new role. They are no longer "ghostbusters". They have a new problem, and it's the living. Ghosts are fighting back. The living are wanting to defeat death. Stephen is gone. Callum is angry. Boo is lost. Rory wants to fix it, but it's hard to undo your biggest mistake... getting sucked into a cult.

    Rory may seem at first like a Mary Jane. Ordinary girl gains gift. Confused. Meets guy. Falls in love with guy. Guy dies. Rory is different though. She's endearing, and her earlier wild anecdotes that at first I found odd fit with what is happening around her. The anecdotes in the Shadow Cabinet work better at foreshadowing the events to come, than in previous installments.

    The Shadow Cabinet goes deeper into Stephen's psyche. Thank you cleverly placed evaluation form on Stephen. His aloofness, knowledge, and recklessness all come down to a piece paper boxed away in his things. It's heartbreaking, and it launches Rory into action.

    This third installment will leave you grasping for the next.


    Any additional comments?

    Frankie. I like her, which probably means she's working for Jane.
