Enjoyable mystery

This is the third book I've listened to about the Peculiar Crimes Unit. There was just a bit too much history in this one, but apart from that it was compelling and I had to listen whenever I could to get to the end. I like the way the books are related and follow on from each other, and have become fond of the characters. The narrator is very good.

Different but a little heavy handed

I didn't love this but I didn't hate it either. The main characters are somewhat unbelievable and the plot is very convoluted. I never felt that I really wanted to finish it but I kept listening. Not for everyone.
