Follow Andrew Scott (BAFTA-winner, Sherlock, James Bond: Spectre) and Freema Agyeman ( Sense8, Doctor Who) as they race against time to solve this multi-layered political thriller. On a sullen, cloudy July day, ten years since 7/7, the confident and optimistic British Prime Minister is visiting a charity in East London. It's just two months after the general election which saw John Campbell's government returned to power with a clear majority, the economy is on the mend and the coalition is fast becoming a bad memory.

This is a great read if you're feeling anxious and need to relax, it doesn't require much thinking, you just listen and take Newt Scamander's word for everything. I highly recommend the audiobook!

I give this narrator 5 stars, simply because he helps me sleep when nothing else will work, and his voice is a good alternative to meditation! Some people would see this as a negative, and I must admit I don't know what the stories are about 90% of the time, but at least my anxiety goes away when I start to listen and I can sleep soundly.

When half-demon Xavier calls in the favour Elena owes him, it seems easy enough - steal Jack the Ripper’s ‘From Hell’ letter away from a Toronto collector who had himself stolen it from the Ripper evidence boxes in the Metropolitan Police files. But nothing in the supernatural world is ever as simple as it seems.

Loved the story, but the narrator often put me off, and lost the story's intensity.

the story was only 45mins and it looks like you have to pay to hear more. And I don't have that much money unfortunately so I was very disappointed and annoyed with myself for not realising it. Now I can't afford to see what happens next and that puts me in a bad mood. I would have bought it if it wasn't so expensive. :'(
