Publisher's Summary

Join Agents Books and Braun on their final adventure with the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences!

There is no time to rest for Eliza D. Braun and Wellington Thornhill Books. The man who has haunted and hounded them since the fall of the Maestro, Doctor Henry Jekyll, is now on a killing spree, using bizarre, theatrical murders as a way to taunt their inability to capture him. It falls on Books and Braun to turn the tables on Jekyll and bring him to justice.

As Wellington and Eliza continue their pursuit of the madman, Jekyll, the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences stand against a recent surge in House of Usher activity. Agents Bruce Campbell and Brandon Hill discover more about the intention of Operation: Ragnorok, and the Ministry find themselves in a race to thwart Usher’s intent to plunge the world into chaos, despair, and a noticeable lack of clotted cream for Devon Teas.

The Ministry will not let this stand.

Please choose a real Audible Narrator !

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I was so looking forward to this installment but I am really having trouble listening to it. I am so surprised actually for I didn't realize how really talented your narrators are - until you hear someone who is not a professional narrator. In this author's reading, it is a challenge to tell the voices apart and after so many with one narrator - it It is very difficult to shift to such a monotone delivery. Please consider re-recording???

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I am guessing because this was an auto question to come up - that I am not the first person to have problems with the narrator. I don't think I am going to be able to finish listening.....

Please Please Please pay a narrator. The last two books have dragged because of the author narrating.

A little slow at points

While I understand some of the reasons an author would want to read their own books, I have a hard time with Miss Ballantine's presentation of the characters. The voices of the Canadian and Aussie agents are extremely unrealistic and distracting. She also slows the story and doesn't have the continuity and excitement of the beginning of the series.

I preferred when James Langton read the first 4 novels in the series. His character portrayals were much more realistic and his reading was exciting and fun.

The book itself is good, but I had a hard time with the narration.
