Here, the eccentric investigators delve into London’s lore-infused subway to catch a killer.

Quirky, brilliant and gripping
The characters are eccentric and beautifully revealed and the story engaging. I love the way that it winds around, gradually developing and revealing. The pace is almost leisurely but there is still huge tension. Very skilful writing.
It's the whole fantastically detailed knowledge of the corners and history of London. The plot is Byzantine but the City is a character in itself.
The voices of the characters bring them to life far more than if I had just read the book - although I have now read several of the Bryant & May books that I had previously heard.
Just thoroughly involved - I looked forward to the next opportunity to listen so much I had to ration the time.
So good I've listened twice and will do so again.
