Summary

They told you that you would die if you opened the book. But would you dare to read it?

The first audiobook in the international best-selling series, narrated by Jeff Harding.

The Book with No Name is a fast-paced, cinematic listen, shot through with black humour, which will hold you rapt from its intriguing opening to the dramatic climax. 

Detective Miles Jensen is called to the lawless town of Santa Mondega to investigate a spate of murders. This would all be quite ordinary in those rough streets, except that Jensen is the Chief Detective of Supernatural Investigations.

The breakneck plot centres around a mysterious blue stone, 'The Eye of the Moon', and the men (and women) who all want to get their hands on it: a mass murderer with a drink problem, a hit man who thinks he's Elvis and a pair of monks among them. Add in the local crime baron, an amnesiac woman who's just emerged from a five-year coma, a gypsy fortune-teller and a hapless hotel porter, and the plot thickens fast.

Most importantly, how do all these people come to be linked to the strange book with no name? The anonymous, ancient book that no one seems to have survived reading? There's only one way to find out what happens when you read the book with no name....

Part of the trilogy which includes The Eye of the Moon and The Devil's Graveyard.

Not for me

I didn't know it would be a western, or at least that's what it was for as long as I could listen to it. Narration was good, but I can't stand this sort of thing. I must have had brain freeze when I bought it, because if I had known it was all bar fights, whisky and whiskers, I don't know why I bought it!

Just awesome, Waiting for the whole trilogy!

The book has everything to keep your attention. Great story, filled with action, realism mixed with fantastic and old religions themes, thrilling and making you laugh. Perfect book. Have I mentioned, it is read by Jeff Harding?-the best, in my humble opinion narrator on Audible ( his Lee Child's interpretation of Reacher's story made me give up reading and switching to audio only! ). The essence of audiobook - the greatest written book, read like especially for you by the best artist of a spoken word.

Audible please convince Jeff to read the whole trilogy! Everyone, who got 'the book with no name', certainly awaits continuation!

Amazingly enjoyable

Loved every moment of this. Such a great book to escape in to. It has everything, murder, intrigue, super natural twists, turns and comedy. Who doesn't love a good old fancy dress massacre.

I have never read a book like this before!!

This book was recommended to me by a friend, and initially I wasn't sure whether I was going to like it. However, I persevered and boy am I glad I did. It was a brilliant story with twists and turns throughout. The characters would have ordinarily been unbelievable, however in the context of this book they were pervect. The only other thing that I can say is try it for yourself ... persevere and you won't be disappointed
