Publisher's Summary

Book 2 in the Whyborne & Griffin series
Introverted scholar Percival Endicott Whyborne wants nothing more than to live quietly with his lover, ex-Pinkerton detective Griffin Flaherty. Unfortunately, Whyborne's railroad tycoon father has other ideas, namely hiring Griffin to investigate mysterious events at a coal mine.
Whyborne, Griffin, and their friend Christine travel to Threshold Mountain, a place of dark legend even before the mine burrowed into its heart. A contingent of Pinkertons - including Griffin's ex-lover Elliot - already guard the mine. But Griffin knows better than anyone just how unprepared the detectives are to face the otherworldly forces threatening them.
Soon, Whyborne and Griffin are on the trail of mysterious disappearances, deadly accidents, and whispered secrets. Is Elliot an ally, or does he only want to rekindle his relationship with Griffin? And if so, how can Whyborne possibly hope to compete with the stunningly handsome Pinkerton - especially when Griffin is hiding secrets about his past?
For in a town where friends become enemies and horror lurks behind a human mask, Whyborne can't afford to trust anything - including his own heart.

Whybourne gets bolder

Another great story, and great narration. Percival Whyborne's father hired Griffin Flaherty to investigate why workers keep going missing at his mine located at Threshold Mountain. He had already hired a bunch of security, including Griffin's ex lover Elliot. Whyborne began experiencing insecurity in his relationship with Griffin as Elliot began disrupting their relationship and the investigation. What is lurking in that cave and are the missing people dead or alive?

I am surprised at how much I enjoyed this series because this isn't a romance series. It's mystery, supernatural, thriller with romance as a side dish. But I like how Whyborne is growing a pair and starting to act with more confidence. I like him and Griffin and that mouthy Christine. They are a trio, but not a menage and it works well as an investigation partnership.

Another winner

Another great mystery/action thriller from Ms. Hawk. In this second book of the series Whyborne and Griffin travel to the town of Threshold to investigate why people are disappearing from the town. Their relationship is tested and paranormal event ensue. It is a wonderful story filled with witty and romantic dialogue and great action and suspense. The narrator does a great job, much better than the last book. Worth a credit.

Better and Better

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, this is a fabulous series and the audio books take it to another level.

Have you listened to any of Julian G. Simmons’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, the first in this series, this was dodgy Irish accent to be found :)

Any additional comments?

Onward and upward to book #3
