Another quality episode in a series which delivers a real hard edge of the modern world alongside whispers of the creepy supernatural while somehow wrapping them up in a cuddly blanket. There are true elements of horror here but with devices like Madame Rose and Mrs McCutcheon's cat as well as the warmth invested in his characters Oswald achieves an excellent balance.
Of course some of that warmth comes from the deliciously smooth tones of Ian Hanmore who will surely always be the voice of Tony McLean and company. His is a voice I could, in fact have, listened to for hours.
I wouldn't say it is always as intense as some of the earlier books but it's very engaging throughout and the various parts of the ending draw it together very impressively. In fact for anyone who is invested in these characters it doesn't just drift off it delivers a smart punch to the jaw to jolt you out of any complacency and leaves you wanting the next book to come quickly!
