Publisher's Summary

When Detective Douglas Jones' son goes missing under strange circumstances, everyone assumes he ran away. The first break in the case comes when a long-lost relative shows up with a new name and a strange tattoo on the palm of his left hand. His name is Tallow Jones. He is a private detective... and a wizard.

A wizard is needed too, because in Atlanta, strange abductions are just the tip of the iceberg.

Tallow Jones is an action-packed detective tale full of mystery, magic, and mayhem!

I was hooked very quickly

I was listening to another book when I started this one, but had to finish it before going back to the first. There were a number of moments when I laughed out loud. My wife listened to it next and I kept having to ask what part she'd just listened to because of her reactions.

I had read the Bowl of Souls series first. She had not. We both enjoyed it for our own reasons.

And I just know Cooley has a family member who knits. No one else knows that pain. :D My wife is going to share this book with her knitting friends because of the references in it.

She actually clued in on somethings before I did. It's a good mystery with solvable parts. I am eager for the next book!

Fun And Action-Packed

Wow, I just love a story that hooks me from the very beginning. Doug's son is missing and in the course of his investigation, things get really strange. Being attacked by creatures that shouldn't exist, creepy bad guys and a mysterious uncle that's really a wizard? What has he gotten himself into?

If you enjoy stories with magic, fantastical creatures and non-stop action, you'll love this! I loved how two worlds, one real and one fantasy, were brought together in this entertaining tale. I also appreciated the humor. The major plot twist was one that completely blindsided me, which doesn't happen that often. This promises to be a great series. The narration was very well done and I could easily visualize the story. My only criticism was that I wasn't crazy about the cover. I really enjoyed this and would recommend it.

On the edge of mystery and magic

Omg I loved this book! I don't want to give away the story so forgive my vagueness. Cooley creates a full fleshed world of magic within a modern day detective case. I've spent every free minute pouring through the book. The details he provides to the world are only second to how alive and relatable he makes his characters. Can't wait to see more Tallow Jones.

Captivating and suspenseful

This is a wonderful twist in combining other world fantasy in a real world setting. I love how Trevor Cooley's great story comes to life through the voice talent of Andrew Tell. It is so enjoyable to be able to visualize the story as I listen to it. Trevor Cooley's talent for describing a scene with great detail is well suited for the audible format. I'm also grateful that there are no concerns about vulgarity or explicit language so that I may listen to it with all my family members age 10 +/- and up. I am really looking forward to the next installment of the Tallow Jones series.

Pretty good story

I was a little unsure about this book in the beginning. I can’t put my finger on it..... maybe the POV switching back and forth was what kept putting me off. Also. I was not pleased with the narrator. An audiobook has a tone be it serious or amusing, emotional or silly and this is created by the narrator. In this book I couldn’t get a steady feeling and it put me off. May be it’s just me. Any way about 3/4 through I got hooked and settled in for the rest of the ride which was pretty good.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review at my request..I will look for forwardp to more of Tallow’s adventures.

Fantastic book!

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

As with a lot of people, this book hooked me from the very beginning. It made me laugh out loud and I enjoyed it very much. It was well narrated and the characters were engaging and well developed. The world building was also done well. I am most definitely interested in the next book in this series. In fact, I'm seriously considering looking into the other books by Trevor Cooley.

Good Start to a series

Good story and narration. The book is not too over the top, and it's something anyone of any age can enjoy. Really good narration.

YA clean book for all ages

YA readable mystery with elements of magic; written in an easy style that can draw you in fairly quickly. Even though I read other reviews before listening to the book, the reveal still surprised me.
Tell does a creditable job with narration. It’s important to me that I can hear the difference between characters.
Recommend. I know I will be checking out more THC books.

A thoroughly unexpected spinoff.

Teacher of Locksher, previous wizard of mysteries vanished before the start of the Bowl of Souls series began. He has returned to our world and must help his family solve crimes with tell tale signs of the fantasy realm he'd left behind. A must-have for fans of the first series and a good introduction for those who haven't.

Immediately Pulled Me In

This book had me from beginning to end. Cooley has created an interesting urban fantasy world as the backdrop of mystery. It has an awesome cast of characters and plenty of twists and turns and kept me listening long into the night. It’s the first time I have read/listened to anything from Trevor H. Cooley, but it won’t be the last. I was excited to see that he has another series available on Audible and thrilled to discover that it’s linked to the fantasy world Tallow Jones explores.
