A great mystery story with enough twists and turns to keep me hooked to the end. Kenny Gabriel is the PI, a London geezer with a deadpan wit and quite a few nice one-liners, like a down-at-heel Philip Marlowe. His home ground is an atmospheric Soho, with its shady past always lingering in the background. Simon Vance is, as ever, a fabulous narrator. He’s obviously enjoying himself, with his cast of larger than life characters. Great stuff.

If, like me, you like a PI who is the wrong side of 50, has personal problems and drinks too much, Kenny Gabrial will satisfy you. This author is new to me and I look forward to more from him. The writing is reminiscent of detective stories gone by, but well written, in a modern context. The characters, places and circumstances are richly drawn and I settled in from the first chapter, thoroughly enjoying the ride through to the end. Simon Vance's narration is faultless.

Would you listen to Soho Dead again? Why?
I might listen to the very end to clarify exactly what happened.
What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?
Everything. He made each character unique.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I chuckled several times and laughed out loud at least once.
Any additional comments?
The narration was excellent and the characters were very interesting (especially Kenny). I guessed the first twist, but none after that. I'll probably read the second book in the series.
I liked this book a lot. But, I was expecting a little more.
Not my favorite book. The book was performed very well, but the story wasn't very interesting.
