Publisher's Summary

Fourteen years after her last adventure, Thursday Next, literary detective, finds herself in an unusual situation her job policing the fictional characters of the BookWorld has been downgraded since her previous escapades are now themselves in print.
However, a pressing threat may call her back into action: first Sherlock Holmes and then Miss Marple are found dead, stopping their series in their tracks. When Thursdays written self also receives a death threat, it becomes clear that a serial killer is on the loose.
Meanwhile, the Goliath Corporation plan on taking literary tourists on holiday in the novels of Jane Austen. Thursday alone realizes the true intent of Goliaths unwanted incursions into fiction, but she can’t fight all these battles on her own. She must team up with the one person she can’t really get along with: the written Thursday Next.

Good addition to the cannon

I was surprised so much book time had gone by since the last book.

It was a good read, not as funny as some of it's predecessors, but a good read.

Rambly but fun return

Listening to them in order. It's nice to return to the series, but there's quite a lot of dialogue used as narrative exposition,which feels clunky compared to the earlier ones.still, it was fine and I'll no doubt carry on with them.
Though i personally enjoy the other narrator in this series more, this one is Perfectly good.
Thanks JF

Why is this an American version?

Loved the story, but perplexed at the American terminology spattered throughout. Isn't it a little insulting to american readers to suggest they couldn't understand what biscuits, car bonnets and boots are but that us Brits can deal with the US version? Also, many of the voices didn't go well with the characters and I swear she pronounced Reading as reading at one point. Annoyances aside, still a good listen with lots of content and twisty, turny things.
