Not for the Squeamish

Following the multi-storey carpark scene in the previous book (where Serena and her pal take a flying walk to freedom), retired cop John and DCI Damon become the unexpected ‘keepers’ of Joe and Tile X. The demonic bathroom tiles stick to their usual routine and are soon making hideous and unrelenting demands on the unlucky humans – if the unfortunate coppers don’t hand over the names for the deadly tiles to slaughter, their joint futures will be short. And very painful.

Though I’d already read ‘Confronting the Hostile’ (book 4 in The Hostile series), I was interested to listen to the audio version to see how it stands up in the entertainment stakes. Actor and voice artist Alexander Doddy narrates this episode, bringing a new dimension to the gory tale with his range of accents and talent as a storyteller. This particular copy came via a free trial with Audible – Amazon’s spoken audio entertainment wing – and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Another brilliant story

These just get better & better. Tile X & Joe are corrupt and evil and get away with as much as they can. By using humans to do their bidding.
I love the originality of these stories. Whether by audio or kindle book.
Narrator again was fab. Looking forward to the next 1!

So good and entertaining

Great ‘ending’ to the story although there could be another one….. I really enjoyed this series. Explaining it to anyone would sound strange and probably not as great as it actually is. Ghosts, demonic tiles, unknown entities controlling people, good cops doing bad things to bad people…. Just loved all of it.
Once again Alexander Doddy did an excellent job narrating.

GREAT SERIES!

This is a great series and I have enjoyed every book! There is plenty of mystery and suspense. The narration was great and kept me entertained.

Crazy Characters

This is one crazy series, fun listen. Tile X and Joe continue their antics using John and Damon. There are many ghosts some fun characters some sad. I recommend to anyone who enjoys listening to weird paranormal fun listens but recommend you start with the other books in series to get the full effect.
