    "The body you are wearing used to be mine." So begins the letter Myfanwy Thomas is holding when she awakes in a London park surrounded by bodies all wearing latex gloves. With no recollection of who she is, Myfanwy must follow the instructions her former self left behind to discover her identity and track down the agents who want to destroy her. She soon learns that she is a Rook, a high-ranking member of a secret organization called the Checquy that battles the many supernatural forces at work in Britain.

    A good tale, but disappointing in places

    Shame about the narration

    The change in narrator was a bad decision and disappointing. Every time she mispronounced a name I mentally corrected her, which was distracting. Ho..Show More »
