Scranton, the strangest city on earth has an uneasy “live and let unlive” relationship with the supernatural. But when a vamp puts the bite on an unwilling victim, or some witch casts the wrong kind of spell, that’s when they call me. “My name’s Markowski, a Detective Sergeant on the Scranton PD’s Supernatural Crimes Investigation Unit. I carry a badge. Also, a crucifix, some wooden stakes, a big vial of holy water, and a 9mm Beretta loaded with silver bullets.”

Would you consider the audio edition of Hard Spell to be better than the print version?

I haven't had the pleasure of the print version - as yet.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I wouldn't be able to settle on a favourite. The whole is so good and better than its parts.

What about Peter Brook’s performance did you like?

His ability, within his vocal tones, to be able to "portray" women, nationalities, accents, etc. he also has a wonderful sense of the funny parts but doesn't make his performance feel like someone has just held up a "Laugh" board to the listener.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh, most certainly.

Any additional comments?

It was simply my ideal mixture, but with added humour for spice. Please keep them coming, Mr Gustianis!
