A more worthy sequel to "Death by Silver" one could not imagine. Our two favorite sleuths are at it again with an even more intriguing case. Many of the same beloved characters return including the more than capable Ms. Frost and Inspector Hatton, now head of the newly formed metaphysical crimes squad. Our two gents will need all their wits and friends about them as they race against time to save their beloved London and even themselves from an evil terror conjured from unscrupulous and decidedly unsavory unsanctioned spell.
The narration was spot on, voicing characters so well I thought I was listening to a whole cast of actors. I highly recommend this Audible version of "Death at the Dionysus Club".
N.B. Until some substantial changes are made, I sadly must advise those listeners to avoid the first Audible book in this series, but do heartily suggest they read "Death by Silver"
The story combines detection with 'metaphysics': magic and murder in a fictional Victorian style London. The gay characters are exploring their relationship alongside their chase for a murderer taking people's hearts. It sounds odd, but works brilliantly. I really enjoyed it and would love more (I've read the previous book about Ned and Julian) I hope Griswold and Scott write another one soon! Other characters like Hatton, the police inspector, and 'Miss' Frost, the assistant, are interesting too. More of Frost would be great for the next book!
The one negative is the narrator's very odd pronunciation. I'm assuming he is trying for upper crust English, but there are some glaring errors! It's a shame because the differentiation of characters voices etc works well but the accent and pronunciation is very peculiar indeed!
