I have listed to a large number of audiobooks over recent years, many of them of them excellent - however, this is the first time I have been sufficiently motivated to actually write a review. This was just a perfect combination of original story, entertaining witty characters and a wonderful narrator. Michael Page's range and consistency of voices brought the whole thing to life.
A slight warning is in order to those of a nervous disposition, however - the story contains occasional graphic descriptions of violence and frequent "colourful" language.

It was a great book. Story kept you intrigued the whole time. It's a fascinating mix between The Italian Job / Oceans Eleven / Clever Crime with fantasy and a fascinating city-scape.
Definitely worth reading. The narrator does a great job too. Very good reading

Lynch has written an excellent story in the spirit of Fritz Leiber, with characters that do full justice to their Grey Mouser and Fafhrd ancestry. Pastiche this is not. Witty, cunning, and occasionally swashbuckling, his characters dance through the stained glory of their fabulously imagined city and into a special place in fantasy folklore.
The audio book is beautifully read by Michael Page, and you can tell that he is relishing the plummy accents of the extended cast.
A fantastic listen. Highly recommended.

An excellent story with good well rounded characters, that moves along at a cracking pace. But what really brings it to life is the narration. You won't want to switch off.

Thoroughly enjoyed the story and the reader was great however too often the volume had to adjusted. Very loud one minute and then next the volume had to increased as it could be heard.
