Moon Over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch (audiobook)

Moon Over Soho  - Ben Aaronovitch, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith

Series: Peter Grant #2


Musicians are dropping dead after gigs and there's a whiff of magic around their bodies...


I really like these audiobooks; Kobna Holdbrook-Smith does a great job. There's only one voice that I have trouble understanding for long speeches but I guess that's kind of intentional. This particular book does get on my nerves in a few spots because I want to give Peter a smack for being an idiot, but it's still really entertaining. It's also weird to hear Guleed referred to as Somali Ninja Girl (Peter first meets her in this book).


I'm counting this as my Free square for the Halloween Bingo. It could also be used for "Murder Most Foul", "Serial/Spree Killer" (ethically-challenged wizard's victims AND musician victims - although the latter is a bit debatable), "Vampires" (hey, they use the term), maybe "Witches" (someone's called a witch, but again it's debatable), "Supernatural", "Monsters" (real cat-people), and "Darkest London". Did I miss any?
