What the Critics Say

"Will keep you riveted from page one" (Jeffrey Deaver)
"Throw in deranged prostitutes, poisonings and throat slittings galore, amidst lashings of London fog. Gory, lurid and tons of guilty fun" (Guardian)

As an Alex Grecian fan.......

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It started out so well, I loved the books leading up to this one, and initially I was not disappointed..... but the further I got the less I liked. It is all so gory, which I can deal with but Jack simply takes over from the general well loved characters and left me cold.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I think the concept was very good, if only the author had not become obsessed with Jack, much lost when the true people we came here for are overshadowed


What about Nigel Carrington’s performance did you like?

This was good - no fault. Good clear diction, lots of feeling, emotive and easy to follow


Do you think The Devil's Workshop needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I know it has a follow up book and it most certainly will not be in my wish list


Any additional comments?

I was so excited to start this book.but its telling that I didnt finish reading it -
