Publisher's Summary

The ghost of Sherlock Holmes is dead, but who will solve his murder?

The Great Detective's ghost has walked London's streets for an age, given shape by people's memories. Now someone's put a ceremonial dagger through his chest. But what's the motive? And who - or what - could kill a ghost?

When policing London's supernatural underworld, eliminating the impossible is not an option. DI James Quill and his detectives have learnt this the hard way. Gifted with the Sight, they'll pursue a criminal genius - who'll lure them into a Sherlockian maze of clues and evidence. The team also have their own demons to fight. They've been to hell and back (literally), but now the unit is falling apart....

    "Struggling to retain wonder and horror of first book"

    The first book in the series introduced us to an amazing mix of police work and fantasy horror and while this third book builds on the underlying larger story arc of the smiling man the characters appeared more observers than participants. Narration as ever superb.

    "A series getting better and better. "

    Thoroughly enjoyed this third outing for the Shadow Police - but it's the performance of Damien Lynch that sets this out from many other audio series.

    "Great"

    I am a fan of this series so it may colour my judgement but I thought it was well written and well narrated. I'm happy to see them get a bit longer aswell.

    "A every day London story NOT"

    the shadow police are back on the case.
    it could be a good idea to recap the earlier books before jumping in. unless your memory is a lot better than mine (not that hard). I have grown to like the team and felt that this book (although very good ) a little rushed in places and did not feel for some of the lesser characters has much as I could have done. On the whole a most enjoyable experience, now I have to wait for the next book.

    "Coming back from hell is hard"

    I'm still really enjoying this series about the Met dealing with London's magical crime It's darker and grittier than Rivers of London and has a similar storyline of an overarching villain who is gradually revealed. This one feels a little bit like filler until the next book but it's a good listen nonetheless and will definitely get the next one.

    Damian Lynch is excellent. A good range of voices and the right tone for the story.

    "Love it"

    Love the whole series and this book does not disappoint, an absolute knockout.

    Excellent narration combined with a story filled with twists, turns, answers (from questions raised in previous books) and excitement. A real edge-of-your-seat book.

    "good story, but audio editing was atrocious"

    story and narration were good, but the audio editing was stilted and annoying. No flow.
