Publisher's Summary

The ghost of Sherlock Holmes is dead, but who will solve his murder?
The Great Detective's ghost has walked London's streets for an age, given shape by people's memories. Now someone's put a ceremonial dagger through his chest. But what's the motive? And who - or what - could kill a ghost?
When policing London's supernatural underworld, eliminating the impossible is not an option. DI James Quill and his detectives have learnt this the hard way. Gifted with the Sight, they'll pursue a criminal genius - who'll lure them into a Sherlockian maze of clues and evidence. The team also have their own demons to fight. They've been to hell and back (literally), but now the unit is falling apart....

Good story, but not a stand-alone

I understand why people who haven't read/listened to the other novels in this series didn't like it. If you haven't listened to the previous volumes, don't start here. It won't make any sense. But personally, I like that Cornell didn't waste my time repeating previous stories or reminding me who is who. I usually find that tedious in books in a series.

With that out of the way, I'm enjoying the Shadow Police. I like all the characters, I like their ops boards and police procedures. And I like that they don't have super powers, other than being able to see magic. Or London stuff, as they call it. I particularly liked this volume because of the Lofthouse segments and the back story on the previous team.

good story, but audio editing was atrocious

story and narration were good, but the audio editing was stilted and annoying. No flow.
