Martin Chorley, aka the Faceless Man, wanted for multiple counts of murder, fraud and crimes against humanity, has been unmasked and is on the run. Peter Grant, Detective Constable and apprentice wizard, now plays a key role in an unprecedented joint operation to bring Chorley to justice. But even as the unwieldly might of the Metropolitan Police bears down on its foe, Peter uncovers clues that Chorley, far from being finished, is executing the final stages of a long-term plan.

if you have not read or listened to the other Rivers of London tales, you should start with book one. Kobna Holdbrook-Smith brings Peter Grant to life in Ben Aaronovitch's series . all the books are great, but if you start with book one it's easier to follow. There is a novella as well.
highly recommended by me.

Kevin Hearne creates the ultimate Atticus O'Sullivan adventure in the grand finale of the New York Times best-selling Iron Druid Chronicles. Unchained from fate, the Norse gods Loki and Hel are ready to unleash Ragnarok, aka the Apocalypse, upon the earth. With a whole host of dark allies on their side, there's a globe-spanning battle on the cards - one which Druid Atticus O'Sullivan will be hard-pressed to survive, much less win.

This, the final book in the series seems to be rushed and a very poor ending for a great series. I would have preferred to wait, rather than have a lower level story. Kevin Hearne may have run out of ideas for the Iron Druid.
unfortunately his other book series something about giants was so bad I had to return it after forcing myself to listen to 3 chapters. Good bye Iron Druid ,I enjoyed sharing your adventures. apart from this book.

Oberon the Irish wolfhound is off to Portland to smell all the things with canine companions, and, of course, his human, ancient Druid Atticus O'Sullivan. The first complication is an unmistakable sign of sinister agendas afoot: a squirrel atop the train. But an even more ominous situation is in store when the trio plus Atticus stumble across a murder upon arrival at the station. They recognize Detective Gabriela Ibarra, who's there to investigate. But they also recognize the body - or rather that the body is a doppelganger for Atticus himself.

Amusing and riveting story of the world's greatest canine detectives and their human assistant. Oberon and team solve the case of the mysterious squirrel on the train and a murder that baffled the police in their own magnificent way.
A great story that is over too soon. But is still wonderful.
