Publisher's Summary

Humans and elves, dwarves and gnomes, wizards and warriors all live and do business in the thriving, overcrowded port city of Cliff's End, to say nothing of the tourists and travelers who arrive by land and sea, passing through the metropolis on matters of business or pleasure - or on quests. The hard-working, under-appreciated officers of the Cliff's End Castle Guard work day and night to maintain law and order as best they can.
Gan Brightblade is one of the world's greatest heroes and a personal friend of the Lord and Lady of Cliff's End. So when he's brutally murdered in grubby lodgings in Dragon Precinct, on the eve of a great quest, the Captain of the Guard puts his two best investigators on the case.

What the Critics Say

"All in all, this is a fascinating excursion in genre-bending; worth a try even for readers who usually take either their procedurals or their fantasies unadulterated." (Booklist)
"Dungeons and Dragnet... As a take-off of the standard crime drama, Dragon Precinct succeeds nicely. Dressed in sword-and-sorcery trappings, the cliches of the genre are given a fresh twist. I would like to see more stories in this same setting." (The Journal of the Lincoln Heights Literary Society)

Just what I'd been missing.

Any additional comments?

One of the things I would love more than anything was for Terry Pratchett to have written more city watch stories. Alas, that will never happen.
So imagine my delight to see someone writing something in the same spirit, and writing it well.
And to make it all perfect, have it read by one of my favourite narrators.

Page Saves The Day at Dragon Precinct

Michael page is one of the best narrators of audiobooks. He really knows how to get into characters and he sounds like he has great fun reading these books.

As for the storyline, although it is called Dragon Precinct, there are no dragons in these books which was rather a let down and only goblins are referred to, otherwise you would not know any exist.

The books are a bit of a let down for us, because they are basically a detective story and more talkie than actual fantasy as we had hoped.
And if it was not for our favourite narrator Michael Page reading these books, we would have lost interest long ago.
