Detective Rita Hobbes’ life has been mysteriously erased, and her day isn’t about to get any better.

All Rita wants is to abandon dreary Blackpool and start over somewhere new. But when she triggers a magical hex that renders her invisible and traps her in her hometown, escape seems impossible.

Rita soon finds that Blackpool has some hidden secrets: magical artifacts fashioned in heaven, a fallen angel buried beneath the sea in a glass prison, and living nightmares in fine suits and animal masks that can turn your mind to soup.

Thrust into a world she doesn’t understand, Rita finds herself trying to solve a case that by any sane measure is unsolvable.

Worse still, the only person she can turn to for help is a self-confessed liar, cheat, and - according to him - the future king of Great Britain.

Listen to Hexed Detective and discover a magical, pause-resisting urban fantasy you cannot put down. Like Neil Gaiman? Then you’ll love Hexed Detective.

Was difficult to get through first part of book

The first part of the book almost lost me, I nearly put it down and look for another book. Then it finally started going much better and keep my interest. This is I think the 1st book in this World I have read and since I did purchase "The Spectral Detective " collection book 1-3 I will be listening to that next.
