Garrett's detective, Lord Darcy, investigates a classic locked-room murder in an unconventional setting - a sorcerer's convention held in barely recognizable London. Gambling, espionage, and mind reading enter the solution.

As well as reading in a way that misses the sense, the narrator can be relied upon to mispronounce English, French, Irish ... It grates from the first, but becomes really irritating by the end.
A different narrator!
"Great book, average reading"
The story is great - good detective/noir/magic yarn, some of it based off the most famous detective/noir stories (Holmes, Christie, Hammett).
Victor must learn what punctuation is all about.
He stops in middle of sentences, stress wrong words, etc.
