Publisher's Summary

A Missing Ferryman. An Undead Dilemma. An Immortal Detective.

An emissary from the Dark Council has just materialized in the office of the Montague & Strong Detective Agency, and makes Simon Strong an offer he can't refuse. Charon is missing. The legendary ferryman responsible for transporting sorcerer souls across the river Styx hasn't been seen in days. And with each passing hour, those unable to cross the river are left to walk among the living, tilting the world further out of balance.

Meet Simon Strong, an immortal, who is also the best private detective in New York City. Together with his surly partner Tristan Montague, a mage of indeterminate age, they must find the Ferryman and get him back to work before another Supernatural War ravages the earth, destroys humanity, and Simon's local coffee shop.

Time is running out. His landlord wants the rent and Karma with a capital K is paying him a visit, and she can be a real....

Join the Montague & Strong Detective Agency and help them locate Charon, so he can restore balance to the universe, put the dead sorcerers to rest, and maybe solve the age-old conundrum - coffee or tea?

good story

was a really good book and the narrator did very well but should not take drinks of water in the middle of reading. I understand needing to take a drink to keep your throat moist but pause the recording, take a drink and resume recording.

Easy listen

I really enjoyed the book. The narrator was really able to give the various characters different voices and made the listening enjoyable. The story could have flowed a little more smoothly but once I became familiar with the writer's style it did not bother me. This is not a groundbreaking book but it was a VERY fun book to Listen to. The interactions between Tristan and Simon made me snicker more than once. I would recommend the book for a road trip!

Very impressive!

I saw this advertised and thought I would give it a go as it is a genre I like and I was not disappointed! immersive, descriptive and humorous in its dialogue, it is an exception debut novel to a series which I will be eagerly keeping am eye out for in the future! Well done!
