Inhaltsangabe

Some things should stay buried.

Repressed scholar Percival Endicott Whyborne has two skills: reading dead languages and hiding in his office at the Ladysmith Museum. After the tragic death of the friend he secretly loved, he's ruthlessly suppressed any desire for another man.

So when handsome ex-Pinkerton Griffin Flaherty approaches him to translate a mysterious book, Whyborne wants to finish the job and get rid of the detective as quickly as possible. Griffin left the Pinkertons following the death of his partner, hoping to start a new life. But the powerful cult that murdered Glenn has taken root in Widdershins, and only the spells in the book can stop them. Spells the intellectual Whyborne doesn't believe are real.

As the investigation draws the two men closer, Griffin's rakish charm threatens to shatter Whyborne's iron control. When the cult resurrects an evil sorcerer who commands terrifying monsters, can Whyborne overcome his fear and learn to trust? Will Griffin let go of his past and risk falling in love? Or will Griffin's secrets cost Whyborne both his heart and his life?

    "Good, solid and a great start to a new series"

    So - first point - the narrator did a good job, I liked his voice and his understated way fits the book perfectly.

    The book itself:
    I liked it - I loved the whole setting, the characters, the storyline and the lovestory. Actually, everything was nearly perfect. Even the revelation that the at first glance "perfect" Griffin wasn't as perfect as one would think.

    For me it dragged a bit in the beginning but I couldn't put my finger on where and why. Probably just a personal problem ;)

    I have the feeling I should give it 5 stars because I wouldn't know what to change to make it better (oh, wait...one last real love scene at the end, that would have been nice).

    But for me it missed the last "wow"-spark - I'm going over this review again when I have relistened to it in a few months.

    So it's not 5 stars but it's also better than 4 stars. 4,5 stars then.
