Publisher's Summary

Ishmael Jones travels to the Scottish Highlands on a mysterious dual mission in this intriguing, genre-blending mystery.

The Organization has dispatched Ishmael and his partner Penny to Coronach House on the shores of Loch Ness, where the secretive but highly influential Baphamet Group are holding their annual meeting. The Organization believes an imposter has infiltrated the Group, and they have instructed Ishmael to root him - or her - out. It's not Ishmael's only mission. The first agent sent by the Organization has been found dead in her room, murdered in a horribly gruesome manner. Ishmael must also discover who killed Jennifer Rifkin, his fellow agent - and why. 

Dismissive of rumors that the legendary "Coronach Creature" is behind Jennifer's death, Ishmael sets out to expose the human killer in their midst. But he must act fast - before any more very important people are killed.

EXCELLENT.

Most enjoyable. The plot was fantastic. Lots of tension and intrigue. The story flows smoothly with Gildart Jackson's narration/performance. The voices of the different characters were very good. I was so engrossed with the story that I stayed up late to finish the book. Simon a Green is a very talented writer. I love this series. I hope there will be more books on this series coming out soon.

Great talent

These books are great, but Gildart Jackson’s ability to alter his many accents with ease is very entertaining and engaging! Keep them coming!

Love this unusual series

I’m enjoying this series about Ishmael Jones an alien spy working for ‘the organisation ‘ and his side kick spy girlfriend Penny. There’s a lot to like crime,horror romance and fabulous characters. A bit of gore but with lighthearted humour. I really can’t peg this unusual series but I love it.

Great narration

Interesting plot with well developed characters, which include the fantastical. Sympathetic leads. The narrator is a joy to listen to and he brings credence and the right tweek of levity to the writing. A pleasurable experience and unusual!
