My name is Peter Grant and until January I was just probationary constable in that mighty army for justice known to all right-thinking people as the Metropolitan Police Service (as the Filth to everybody else). My only concerns in life were how to avoid a transfer to the Case Progression Unit - we do paperwork so real coppers don't have to - and finding a way to climb into the panties of the outrageously perky WPC Leslie May.

An odd story and some odd storytelling

First off, solid performance by the narrator, especially due to clearly distinguishable character impressions. He sometimes falls into a somewhat monotonous tone, but that feels quite in-character for protagonist PC Grant.

The story itself, however...
The author often paints beautiful and vivid pictures of the characters and environment, but then makes sudden jumps to another location or time frame. Surely he could have spared a few lines for an interlude?
As for the content: we get to witness PC Grant discovering things about London that he would never have considered possible, so I'll cut the author some slack on sudden appearances and convenient discoveries.
But somewhere after the fifth occurrence of "Oh, by the way, Peter, there's also <plot device>. I just didn't have time to tell you earlier.", it just has me rolling my eyes.

Overall, I unfortunately have to recommend you find another fantasy/murder-mystery crossover series for an enjoyable passtime.
