Where the Marble Arch stands today in London was once the Tyburn gallows - also known as The Hanging Tree. The walk toward those gallows along Oxford Street and past the Mayfair mansions has a bloody and haunted history as the last trip of the condemned. Some things never change. For both blood and ghosts have returned to those mansions of the super-rich. And it's up to Peter Grant - England's last wizard and the Metropolitan Police's reluctant investigator of all things supernatural - to get to the bottom of the sinister doings.

I have just finished the second audiobook in the series. I love the series & the narrator as well. If you like a little bit of magic and fantasy mixed in with your British crime then I would absolutely suggest you give this book a try! Kind of reminds me of Charles De Lint a little bit, where there's a whole other magical world right under our noses.

Body and soul. The song. That's what London constable and sorcerer's apprentice Peter Grant first notices when he examines the corpse of Cyrus Wilkins, part-time jazz drummer and full-time accountant, who dropped dead of a heart attack while playing a gig at Soho's 606 Club. The notes of the old jazz standard are rising from the body - a sure sign that something about the man's death was not at all natural but instead supernatural.

I'm loving these books so much! Can't believe I've never heard of them before. The storyline and characters are fantastic and I love how the world of magic is woven in with the everyday world of policing in London. The narrator is absolutely wonderful and does such a wide array of accents that, to my untrained ear, are all excellent. Pretty sure I'm going to be binge listening to this whole series now.

The first little bit of this story I found to be kind of boring, but as soon as the actual storyline kicked in I was hooked! There are actually two stories going on here which makes it all the more interesting. Definitely an exciting listen from start to finish.

This was the 2nd book that I've listed to in this series, and I do really enjoy them. Richard Armitage's narration, though, is truly wonderful. I can't say enough about how much I enjoy him. I never thought I would actually be searching out books just for the narrator, but I do that now! I will keep listening to more books in this series, because the characters and the stories have been enjoyable, certainly enough to keep me coming back for more.

This was a great "first listen" for me from this series. I've listed to a couple of Joy Ellis's books on here that are not in this series and really enjoyed them. Nikki Galena's character and her relationship with Easter was something that I appreciated and enjoyed throughout the book, in addition to the main storyline. I'll be listening to more books in the series for sure, and will be curious to see how their relationship progresses. The narrator was fine, not as bad as some of the other reviewers thought but not tremendous (like Richard Armitage).

Robbie Parsons is one of London's finest, a black cab driver who knows the city by heart. In his backseat is a man with a gun in his hand - a man who brazenly committed a crime in front of the Artemis Club then jumped in and ordered Parsons to drive. As the criminal eventually escapes to Nairobi, Detective Superintendent Richard Jury comes across the case. He knew one of the victims, a professor of astrophysics and an expert gambler. Feeling personally affronted, Jury enlists his whole gang of merry characters to contend with a case that involves Tanzanian gem mines, a closed Reno casino, and a hidden pub.

It's Martha Grimes! Richard Jury and his wacky crew are in fine form once again. Grimes is one of my favourite authors & I loved this book just as much as all of her others. The narration was excellent as well. If you love her previous work and her characters then you'll love The Knowledge as well.

I really enjoyed this story! I have to say though, that the narrator was the best part. In fact, the best narrator that I have heard on Audible so far. Although I am Canadian, and probably not the best judge of different British accents, I thought his accents were amazing. He was also able to narrate the female voices better than any other male narrator I've heard so far. Sometimes when the men try and do the female voices it just sounds weird and fake but he did an excellent job.

I look forward to more stories by this author and narrator.

Jonathan Kellerman is one of my favourite authors, and this book was no exception. Excellent story with deep, interesting characters. The narrator was just okay for me. Probably just personal preference but I felt like he had somewhat of an East Coast American accent, when the story and the characters are all from the West Coast of the United States. I guess that's just not how I imagined them sounding in my head. Still enjoyed it though!

Toby is a happy-go-lucky charmer who's dodged a scrape at work and is celebrating with friends when the night takes a turn that will change his life - he surprises two burglars who beat him and leave him for dead. Struggling to recover from his injuries, beginning to understand that he might never be the same man again, he takes refuge at his family's ancestral home to care for his dying uncle Hugo. Then a skull is found in the trunk of an elm tree in the garden - and as detectives close in, Toby is forced to face the possibility that his past may not be what he has always believed.

This was a wonderful story! It was definitely long but I wasn't bored, even for a single minute. The narrator was fantastic and I loved all of his different Irish accents. it's actually much more than a murder mystery story, there are multiple intricate storylines going on throughout the whole book. This was the first book I have enjoyed by this author and I will definitely be reading or listening to more of her work.
