Summary

Perfect for fans of Ben Aaronovitch and Jim Butcher.
The name's Gideon Tau, but everyone just calls me London. I work for the Delphic Division, the occult investigative unit of the South African Police Service. My life revolves around two things - finding out who killed my daughter and imagining what I'm going to do to the bastard when I catch him.
I have two friends in my life. The first is my boss, Armitage, a 50-something DCI from Yorkshire who looks more like someone's mother than a cop. Don't let that fool you.
The second is the dog, my magical spirit guide. He talks. He's an alcoholic. And he's a mean drunk.
Life is pretty routine - I solve crimes, I search for my daughter's killer. Wash, rinse, repeat. Until the day I'm called out to the murder of a ramanga - a low-key vampire. It looks like an open and shut case. There's even CCTV footage of the killer.
Except...the face on the CCTV footage? It's the face of the man who killed my daughter.
And that's just the beginning of the trouble I'm about to get into.

A great listen

Really enjoyed this one. Along the lines of The Streets of London but set in Durban in South Africa. I don't know much about the country and the book gives a good sense of place. A very different dog companion to the loveable Irish Wolfhound in the Iron Druid books but he grew on me hugely. Exciting story and sets the scene for the next book. Looking forward to it.

enthralling!

this audio book was really good, one of very few I actually wanted to get to the end of just to find out what happens. an original idea, delivered with passion and at the right pace... Would I listen to another book by this author? absolutely!
