Publisher's Summary

Old ghosts of different kinds come back to haunt Felix, in the fourth gripping Felix Castor novel. Names and faces he thought he'd left behind in Liverpool resurface in London, bringing Castor far more trouble than he'd anticipated. Childhood memories, family traumas, sins old and new, and a council estate that was meant to be a modern utopia until it turned into something like hell...these are just some of the sticks life uses to beat Felix Castor with as things go from bad to worse for London's favourite freelance exorcist.
See, Castor's stepped over the line this time, and he knows he'll have to pay; the only question is, how much? Not the best of times, then, for an unwelcome confrontation with his holier-than-thou brother, Matthew. And just when he thinks things can't possibly get any worse, along comes Father Gwillam and the Anathemata. Oh joy....

Why did they change the narrator with book 4?

Story is as good as first 3, but they changed the narrator, which really ruins this series for me. Does the publisher really not understand how critical the voices are in an audio book to building the character? I know the author creates the story, but the performance aspect of audiobooks should not be discounted, as it obviously was on this series. If the prior narrator was poor, that's one thing, but he wasn't. The history I felt with Felix is totally disrupted now with some "stranger" pretending to be him. I will not buy more audio books in this series.

Disappointing Change

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I can imagine Damian Lynch's voice suiting other material in this genre, but the mid-series shift in narration is extremely disappointing. This Felix comes across as almost chipper and fast paced, and other voices are almost indistinguishable. I found myself missing Michael Kramer's Juliette in particular.


Was Thicker Than Water worth the listening time?

No. I'll be switching to physical copies for the rest of the series.
