Publisher's Summary

Monsters are roaming the streets of London. Of course, some monsters are scarier than others: Unicorns? No bother. Vampires? Big deal. Werewolves? Ho hum. Lawyers? … Aaargh! Duncan's boss doesn't think that he's cut out to be a lawyer. He isn’t a pack animal. He lacks the killer instinct. But when his best friend from school barges his way back into Duncan’s life, with a full supporting cast of lawyers, ex-wives, zombies and snow-white unicorns, it’s not long before things become distinctly unsettling. Hairy, even.

Werewolves, lawyers, vampires, zombies and a unicorn. Just another day at the office. If you’ve listened to Tom Holt before you’ll know what you’re getting into, it’s the real world with added fantasy elements and humour. This one is a little darker than other books by this author I’ve listened to. But it is still very good, with lots of humour, and very accurate and funny observations on dog (well wolf) behaviour, which any dog owners will recognise. I really enjoyed it, and it was excellently read by Ray Sawyer. Highly recommended.

A diamond in the rrrrrruff!

I've been a fan of Tom Holt's books for several years, so was really pleased to find unabridged recordings here on Audible. Ray Sawyer brings the work to life with a wide range of characteristisations.

The story itself contains Holt's usual mix of subtle references, cunningly crafted turns of phrase, and characters both credible and entertaining. 'Barking' also draws on Holt's real life experience as a solicitor, adding greatly to the authentic 'feel' of the work.

In conclusion, a well-wrought recording which should please Tom Holt fans new and established alike.
