Publisher's Summary

Could you find a hotel for a harpy? Or a bar for a Bigfoot?Following the disaster that was her last job, Zoë is searching for a fresh start as a travel writer in New York City.
After stumbling across a seemingly perfect position, though, Zoë is blocked at every turn because of the one thing she can't take off her résumé - human. Not to be put off by anything - especially not her blood-drinking boss or death goddess co-worker - Zoë delves deep into the monster world. But her assignments turn deadly when the careful balance between humans and monsters starts to crumble with Zoë right in the middle.

Fresh, fun and different.

I really enjoyed this book. It had new ideas and a fresh take on monsters in the big city.
The author is very good as an narrator. She doesn't have an actors perfect trained voice but that just gives the main character a feeling of being real.

I really love it when authors read their own work. I actually originally found the book as a paper back and liked it. Then I saw that the audio book was read by the author , immediately bought it and loved it.

Can't wait for Mur Lafferty's next book.

mur at her best

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I've been a fan of mur for years now and she only seems to get better,
shambling is a side ways look at an alternative ny city where every conceivable type of being is out there somewhere, its intelligent witty and even pretty hot and steamy in places, mur! who knew!
a sure fire hit would definitely recommend 5*

So funny and so entertaining

I loved it thank you murr. So entertaining and refreshing to see the usual take on this kind of story turned on its head. I love it's "everyday" attitude to the fantastical. It works so well in listened to both story's more than twice already I am waiting with baited breath for the next book.
