Would you listen to The Burial Society again? Why?

Couldn't "put it down" - a really good and enjoyable listen - plowed through it fast - catchy story. Hope it's the first in the series...

What other book might you compare The Burial Society to and why?

Has a similar feel to Girl on the Train, but doesn't take itself so seriously.

As Tinseltown rings in the twilight of its Golden Age, a gorgeous young man arrives from Texas, hell-bent on exploiting his brooding good-looks and smoldering sex appeal in exchange for his rightful place among the stars of the silver screen - only to become dangerously entangled in the lives of one of the most powerful couples in show business. As his dream of stardom devolves into a lurid, erotic nightmare, he must choose between fortune and fame or his own sanity and survival in this City of Whores.
