Deacon Reid was born bad to the bone with no intention of changing. A lifetime of law-bending and living on the edge suits him just fine, until his baby sister dies and he finds himself raising her little girl. Staring down a family history of bad decisions and reaped consequences, Deacon cashes in everything he owns, purchases an auto shop in Half Moon Bay, and takes his niece, Zig, far away from the drug dens and murderous streets they grew up on.

"My name is Raine Benares. Until last week I was a seeker, a finder of things lost and people missing. Now I'm psychic roommates with the Saghred, an ancient stone with cataclysmic powers. Just me, the stone, and all the souls its ingested over the centuries. Crowded doesnt even begin to describe it.

I read and enjoyed these books when they were first released, so when I saw them on audible I had to give them a listen. Eileen Stevens brought the characters alive, the wit and humor of the books, what made them so much fun to read is even more evident in the recordings. Highly recommended.

Twenty years ago little Brian Arlington was kidnapped from his family's Long Island estate and was never seen again. The trail went cold, but investigative journalist Griff Hadley has always thought there was more to the story - much more. When the Arlingtons' patriarch invites him to stay at their estate to research his true crime book, Griff can't say no. It's the story of a lifetime. But not everyone is happy about Griff's presence. Relatives and staff alike regard him coldly, including Pierce Mather, the Arlingtons' attractive lawyer.

I enjoyed the audio version even more then the book. Gomez Pugh did an excellent job of bringing Adam and Rob to life. I especially liked Adam's Joe Friday-ish Just the facts, Ma'am delivery

It begins with a dead body at the far end of Baker Street tube station, all that remains of American exchange student James Gallagher - and the victim's wealthy, politically powerful family is understandably eager to get to the bottom of the gruesome murder. The trouble is, the bottom - if it exists at all - is deeper and more unnatural than anyone suspects...except, that is, for London constable and sorcerer's apprentice Peter Grant.

If you could sum up Whispers Under Ground in three words, what would they be?

This was the first audiobook I bought that I had not already read - I enjoyed it very much. The narrator was perfect! His voice was dead on how I thought Peter should sound and the story was another excellent tale by Ben Aaronovitch. I can't wait for the next one.

What did you like best about this story?

The interplay between Peter and the other Police offers.

Have you listened to any of Kobna Holdbrook-Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Peter is talking to Leslie and he realizes he read her expression on her face.

Any additional comments?

Wonderful series with the perfect narrator!
