Publisher's Summary

A contemporary Sherlock Holmes, the eccentric Bernie Quist is a consultant detective in the city of York. Christmas is days away, and once again, the reclusive sleuth will be quietly celebrating alone. His assistant Watson, a teenager from the Grimpen housing estate, has other ideas, mostly involving parties, girls, and beer. Yuletide plans are halted when three chemists die and the fiance of one hires them to look into her apparent suicide. After discovering the chemist wasn't engaged, they're drawn into the mystery when their employer is killed. Added to this, Watson has a puzzle of his own - Quist is clearly hiding something and he's curious to know what. The investigation leads to a shady cartel of northern businessmen, a forgotten Egyptian cult, and an ancient evil lurking in the medieval alleyways of York. Quist's secret is also revealed, and Watson doesn't know what terrifies him the most.

An entertaining book

The story builds with some great twists which really added to what was an enjoyable book. Watson is hilarious and I found myself laughing out loud as I listened in the car. Pulling up at work I sat in the car park for that extra chapter just to see what was coming next. I hope there are new books based around Quist and Watson. Just one hopefully constructive criticism, the quality of the recording is not 100 % with background noise evident at higher volume levels. Overall though it’s 5 stars from me.
