Publisher's Summary

It will take more than angels and demons to stop him. Reporter Spencer Finch is embroiled in the hunt for a missing book, encountering along the way cat burglars and mobsters, hackers and mysterious monks. At the same time, he's trying to make sense of the legacy left to him by his late grandfather, a chest of what appear to be pulp magazines from the golden age of fantasy fiction. Finch gradually uncovers a mystery involving secret societies, generations of masked vigilantes - and an entire hidden history of mankind.
Chris Roberson is obsessed with superhero comics, pulp fiction, puppetry, animation, history, and science, and has a Bachelor of Arts in English and Liberal Arts Honors from the University of Texas at Austin, 1992. He has been a finalist for the World Fantasy Award four times—twice for publishing, and once each for writing and editing—twice a finalist for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, and three times for the Sidewise Award for Best Alternate History Short Form (winning in 2004 with his story “O One”). He lives in Austin, Texas.

I tried, really tried to finish this book. Then decided I don't have another hour and two minutes to waste. Horrible voices, but I think that might have been a nod to the pulp fiction genre. I don't really like pulp fiction, but this wasn't even good pulp fiction.

Not my type of book

The book was recommended to me by Audible based on my previous purchases so I thought I'd give it a go. Unfortunately overall it was not my thing. I enjoyed some part of the storyline but was not engaged by large parts. The quality of the reading voice was fantastic as always.
