Publisher's Summary

As her passionately devoted fans know, Elizabeth Hand is a uniquely gifted storyteller. Listeners were introduced to her iconoclastic crime novels, featuring offbeat photographer Cass Neary, in the underground classic Generation Loss, which was followed by the brilliant Available Dark. In Hard Light, the third book in the series, Cass makes a remarkable discovery that could change our understanding of human history - if she lives long enough to share it.
As the story opens, Cass arrives in London, where she's arranged to meet her long-lost lover, Quinn O'Boyle. When Quinn fails to show at their rendezvous point, Cass meets the eccentric couple Mallo and Morven Dunfries. When Mallo catches Cass rifling through his medicine cabinet in search of drugs, he threatens to turn her in to the authorities then puts her to work as a runner for his illegal goods. Cass makes a delivery to Poppy Teasel, a famous singer from long ago. Cass leaves Poppy's flat but returns a short time later to find the place ransacked and Poppy dead. Fearful she'll become the next victim, Cass goes on the run.

Unavoidable Illegal Drugs???

I refuse to finish this, the pop culture references & illegal drugs are the entire story! Waste of my money!

TERRIBLE accents!

I'm English and this book is set in London. The voice actress cannot do an English accent of any variety...we're talking Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins here. I read the first two Cass Neary books and and will go back to reading the third. Whoever hired the voice actress made a big mistake.
