Publisher's Summary

Don't miss the exciting third installment in the best-selling urban fantasy mystery series, the Crow Investigations.

A cursed Fox. A vengeful Silver. A whole lot of trouble. Lydia Crow has long suspected there is more beneath London than just trains but has never been keen to poke around in the dark. But when Paul Fox, powerful member of the Fox Family, blackmails her into taking a case, she has no choice. Investigating a suspicious death in a disused tunnel of the London Underground for her ex-boyfriend causes friction between her and DCI Fleet - and not the fun kind. Uncle Charlie is still pressuring her to work for the family business, her ghostly flatmate is looking for answers about his own demise and Maria Silver is out for blood. Preferably Lydia’s.

Interesting, magical, flawed and funny

I am a huge consumer of detective fiction, fantasy and any combination of either. I really enjoyed this series. They are not grimdark, or shocking novels...I'd describe this series as building to one hell of a boil!
The action is not unbelievable, nor outrageous. There is virtually no swearing or nudity.
It all happens in London.
The characters have a depth, which is rewardingly explored and expanded in each book.
I am looking forward to hearing/reading more about Lydia Crow's world.

Wonderful

Totally hooked on these stories. Love the idea and the characters especially Charlie. I hope there are more to come as I finished this in two nights.

Didn't finish the book

I really hoped that by now, the author would have gotten over her need to insert the word 'crow' into every sentence. To be fair, she does write 'fox' a lot too, but that doesn't make it better. The editor should have cleaned this up before turning it into an audio book. Right now it just goes like this: 'crow, crow, Lydia Crow, uncle crow, crow, crow, crow, crow, fox, family crow, crow, Lydia is a crow, magic fox fox crow.... Pearl. Crow.' It's sad that I had to mark the story down, as I'm sure the plot is decent. I expect it'd be an entertaining book with a bit of editing.
