I'm never going to be able to sing "Row, row, row your boat. " again without giggling. Gomez Pugh definitely brought his A-game to this narration,...and that's on top of Jordan's A-game for this tale.

I love this series - Jordan Castillo-Price is an amazing author and keeps the story moving along - never a dull moment! Gomez Pugh has not only Victor's voice down pat, but does an amazing job with all the additional characters as well! If you haven't read (or listened) to the books in this series, do yourself a favor and get started!

First, I must say I love the audiobook cover art for this story.
Once again the superb narration by Gomez Pugh kept me enthralled from start to finish. He has made this wonderful series truly outstanding. The pace and tone are spot on. I love the way he delivers Vic’s sarcastic and witty lines. In fact, he is Victor Bane and always will be. I adore the brilliant characterisation of each person with their distinctive voices and I especially love the voice Gomez Pugh gave to Jacob. So sexy!
You really need to read/listen to the previous six stories in this series to fully appreciate the events and characters in this epic instalment.
Spook Squad is a lengthy and complex story, with fabulous and unexpected twists along the way. So much happens in a JCP novel. Her writing is marvellous and draws you into each and every scene. The characters are well-developed and some surprise us here. The dialogue is real and engaging, and the world-building is excellent.
The main plot of this story centres around Vic identifying and exorcising the repeaters in Con Dreyfuss’s office at the FPMP building as payback for a favour from the previous story. There’s so much else going on, though. The exorcism scenes throughout this book are thrilling. I love how JCP has developed Vic’s psychic abilities and that Jacob is often there to assist him. Their connection is so deep they can almost read each other’s minds.
Indeed, we are treated to quality time when Vic and Jacob are together, and that is super hot and special. You can almost feel the love, passion, and trust that flows between these two lovers when they interact.
I’m looking forward to the next story as I’m sure there’s plenty of work left for Vic and Jacob to do, plus I need to know what’s going to happen to Crash.
What did you like most about Spook Squad?
Characterisation is brilliant, JCP is careful to continue previous themes and tendencies and develop her protagonists while they deal with events. A complex novel which easily justifies its length because several issues are resolved and an arc ends.
What did you like best about this story?
The resolution of previous storylines. The low-key wit and the narrator's ability to deliver the right tone.
Have you listened to any of Gomez Pugh’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Yes - this is just as good as the others. It is hard to distinguish the narrator from the character of Vic, so perfectly does Gomez Pugh convey the character.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
I've no idea - can't possibly convey anything accurate about the book in a few words.
Any additional comments?
The writing is so good that many narrators could do a decent job of this book but Gomez Pugh is much better than that. He really takes you completely into the story and you can relax there.
