Publisher's Summary

Book 2 in the Whyborne & Griffin series

Introverted scholar Percival Endicott Whyborne wants nothing more than to live quietly with his lover, ex-Pinkerton detective Griffin Flaherty. Unfortunately, Whyborne's railroad tycoon father has other ideas, namely hiring Griffin to investigate mysterious events at a coal mine.

Whyborne, Griffin, and their friend Christine travel to Threshold Mountain, a place of dark legend even before the mine burrowed into its heart. A contingent of Pinkertons - including Griffin's ex-lover Elliot - already guard the mine. But Griffin knows better than anyone just how unprepared the detectives are to face the otherworldly forces threatening them.

Soon, Whyborne and Griffin are on the trail of mysterious disappearances, deadly accidents, and whispered secrets. Is Elliot an ally, or does he only want to rekindle his relationship with Griffin? And if so, how can Whyborne possibly hope to compete with the stunningly handsome Pinkerton - especially when Griffin is hiding secrets about his past?

For in a town where friends become enemies and horror lurks behind a human mask, Whyborne can't afford to trust anything - including his own heart.

    "Better and Better"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this is a fabulous series and the audio books take it to another level.


    Have you listened to any of Julian G. Simmons’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Yes, the first in this series, this was better...no dodgy Irish accent to be found :)


    Any additional comments?

    Onward and upward to book #3

    "Whybourne gets bolder"

    Another great story, and great narration. Percival Whyborne's father hired Griffin Flaherty to investigate why workers keep going missing at his mine located at Threshold Mountain. He had already hired a bunch of security, including Griffin's ex lover Elliot. Whyborne began experiencing insecurity in his relationship with Griffin as Elliot began disrupting their relationship and the investigation. What is lurking in that cave and are the missing people dead or alive?

    I am surprised at how much I enjoyed this series because this isn't a romance series. It's mystery, supernatural, thriller with romance as a side dish. But I like how Whyborne is growing a pair and starting to act with more confidence. I like him and Griffin and that mouthy Christine. They are a trio, but not a menage and it works well as an investigation partnership.

    "Another winner"

    Another great mystery/action thriller from Ms. Hawk. In this second book of the series Whyborne and Griffin travel to the town of Threshold to investigate why people are disappearing from the town. Their relationship is tested and paranormal event ensue. It is a wonderful story filled with witty and romantic dialogue and great action and suspense. The narrator does a great job, much better than the last book. Worth a credit.

    "A good next book in the series"

    A nice follow on from the first book, some supernatural goolies in the caves, a lot of romance, and a great adventure. Looking forward to the next one!

    "Better, but still has room to improve"

    I like these characters, and I am driven to read each offering in the series as it is released. The narrator's best voice is that of Christine, which makes it hard to listen to his less-than-good attempts at Griffin and Whyborne. I think the author misses opportunities to make the relationship more compelling - but that doesn't mean I won't be buying the next in the series when it is released.

    "Great follow up to Widdershins"


    I listened to this book on audio and the narrator is not my favorite. I wasn’t thrilled with his performance in “Widdershins” and it was pretty much the same deal here. He simply has no oomph to his voice, there is very little to no emotion behind any of the words and I’m a reader who needs the oomph. I don’t enjoy having a story “read” to me. I need a performance. And it’s all about me, right? Anyway, this story is good enough for me to mostly ignore the sometimes awkward/sometimes stilted delivery and the lack of tone change in most of the character voices. Christine is done right though so that’s awesome.

    This time lovebirds Griffin and Whyborne and their colleague Christine are investigating strange goings-on at a coal mine. There’s some humor, dastardly humans, some spicy love making, ancient monsters with pincers and surgical skills (yes! Gross but, yes, I loved it!). What more could I want in a story? Nothing, I tell you. Ok, maybe a little angst but that’s here too as the pair have their first real fight, face some insecurities and kiss and make up.

    If you don’t like horror you will need to skim and think of this during the scary bits.

    This is book #2 in the series and I most definitely recommend reading them in order so you can watch the main couple fall in love and solve their first really weird case in Widdershins. I don’t follow many series because I’m too lazy to keep track of them but this is one that calls to me. I may read the rest in paper format though unless I hear that the narration gets a whole heck of a lot better . . .

    "Fantastic read!"
    What did you love best about Threshold?

    I loved the lyrical writing style that brought the characters to life in this exciting tale. The author's storytelling talent had me sitting on the edge of my seat, anxious to hear more.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dr. Whyborne is my favorite because I can really relate to him. His personality is close to my own and his experiences in life mirror my own.

    "Another good addition to the series."

    A bit fantastic but fun. Some of the "just in the nick of time" rescuing got to be repetitive. Still adore the character of Christine. Glad they got a change of scenery. Looking forward to reading the next in the Series. Narrator is ok - not great.

    "Whyborne leaves Widdershins!"

    And its as awesome as you'd think. Perfect interplay with Christine and all the best of new relationship insecurities between him and Griffin, with great action in between the great emotion and sex. The whole series is essential.
