so so boring
I got this book on the strength of a review which said it was " better than The Rivers of London "
it is a terrible book. long long descriptions of a door or a jacket while the main storyline is squeezed into the space between inane comments about the other character being 'hot'. we don't know if he is hot as he has all the characteration of a cardboard cutout in the distance.

A reasonable listen
It took me a while to make up my mind about this book. I wasn't keen on the narration although I got used to it.
Some parts were well researched where others didn't ring true. Like the church and priest involvement, witches were pagan, as well as the devilish/supernatural elements (the devil being a Christian construct). I will however, lookout for more books in this series if they are written with the hope that these aspects will improve and the dialogue for the main character, Rosie Strange, tightens up and makes her look less ignorant and silly.
One to watch with the makings of a good series of light listening, mildly creepy books.
