Summary

Fetch Philips has nothing left to believe in. Which is why he's surprised when the people of Sunder City start to believe in him....

Rumour has it that Fetch is only one who can bring magic back into the world. So when a man is murdered in a way that can only be explained as magical, Fetch is brought in on the case. A case which just might unearth things best left buried....

This sequel to The Last Smile in Sunder City follows the adventures of Fetch Phillips - a character destined to be loved by fans of Ben Aaronovitch, Jim Butcher and Terry Pratchett's Discworld.

What a broken boy is Fetch!

Amazing second book from Luke Arnold. talented actor, written and narrator. He is honing his craft rapidly and his level of fitness is suprisining for a debut series from an author. the world grips you, the characters stick to you and the story holds your emotions hostage and your moral compass is completely tested. I await the next installment eagerly!

Dropped off Abercrombie for this one.

The first one was a fine listen and the second picks up the story and gives it a hefty twist to conflict and guilt and drives it home deeper, when the past is resurrected. A clever take on fantasy, steampunk and urban fantasy, and mashes them into a growing brew of discontent, guilt and several mysteries.
