Publisher's Summary

On some days, New York is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. This was one of the other days... Melody Malone, owner and sole employee of the Angel Detective Agency, has an unexpected caller. It's movie star Rock Railton, and he thinks someone is out to kill him. When he mentions the 'kiss of the Angel', she takes the case.
Angels are Melody's business... At the press party for Railton's latest movie, studio owner Max Kliener invites Melody to the film set of their next blockbuster. He's obviously spotted her potential, and Melody is flattered when Kliener asks her to become a star. But the cost of fame, she'll soon discover, is greater than anyone could possibly imagine. Will Melody be able to escape Kliener's dastardly plan - before the Angels take Manhattan?

Loved it!

Would you consider the audio edition of Doctor Who: The Angel's Kiss to be better than the print version?

Yes. Definitely.

What did you like best about this story?

I listened to this book during a break in the new Doctor Who episodes, so it was a very nice Doctor Who fix for me.

What does Alex Kingston bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It's so much better to hear River's voice than to just read it for yourself.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There's a part in the book where she makes a comment about her name, (I don't want to give the exact quote) but I was cracking up laughing. I really enjoyed the whole book, but that part really stood out to me.

Any additional comments?

Let me just say, that I LOVE River. She may be my favorite TV character of all time. (aside from the Doctor, of course) So, basically, I had no choice but to love this book. It was sassy and funny and just very River. As much as I enjoy watching episodes with her in them, it was so much fun being inside her head. It was just perfect. Oh, and the fact that it was narrated by Alex Kingston of course made it that much better. :)

Fun prequel to Angels of New York

An important point to note is that this is, in fact, a Melody Malone story. Just like it says on the cover. It is NOT a Doctor Who story. It's connected, it stars River Song (sort of) as a pseudo-hard-boiled detective. It leads nearly seamlessly into the Angels of New York episode. But if you are waiting for the Doctor or Amy or Rory or anyone else.... you're out of luck.
That being said, this is loads of fun and I could listen to Alex Kingston all day. So I recommend it for super-serious Whovians or anyone else with a River/Doctor crush.
