Inhaltsangabe

Martin Chorley, aka the Faceless Man, wanted for multiple counts of murder, fraud and crimes against humanity, has been unmasked and is on the run.

Peter Grant, Detective Constable and apprentice wizard, now plays a key role in an unprecedented joint operation to bring Chorley to justice.

But even as the unwieldy might of the Metropolitan Police bears down on its foe, Peter uncovers clues that Chorley, far from being finished, is executing the final stages of a long-term plan.

A plan that has its roots in London's 2,000 bloody years of history and could literally bring the city to its knees.

To save his beloved city, Peter's going to need help from his former best friend and colleague - Lesley May - who brutally betrayed him and everything he thought she believed in. And, far worse, he might even have to come to terms with the malevolent supernatural killer and agent of chaos known as Mr Punch....

Peter Grant and the Battle for London

A little warning to novices: if you are not familiar with at least four of the books from this series, you will be confused and not really enjoy this book. However if you are already a fan in the know you will love it because a lot of characters and events from the previous books (and the graphic novels too) get mentioned - additional flavour for true fans.

And from Mr. Punch to fae and others from the demi-monde: Peter has to deal with them right in the historic heart of London and it is a real battle. The performance by Kobna Holbrook-Smith is flawless and fitting as always, so listening to this excellent book is pure joy.

This book could almost be a grand finale, but (sigh of relief) do not fear there are developments that need to be continued in further books.

One weak point

It's all really good but the music between chapters is a bit distracting and annoying.

Another gripping sequel

The story concludes with happy endings but one lose end remains. A follow up to come? Well narrated and thoroughly enjoyed. At one point the story deviates from the plot and almost starts to ramble aimlessly which is quite unnecessary but once back on track all is forgiven.

Great finish....

of a all in all brilliant book series. Funny, exciting and full of typical british humor. You need to know what went on before though, ( at least Book 4 to 6 ) otherwise you not going to understand all the hints and clues.

Ich war so neugierig...

wie es weiterging, dass ich mir sogar die englische Version geholt habe. Ich bilde mir ein, Englisch ganz gut zu beherrschen, aber es hat doch ein paar Stunden gedauert, bis ich mich in den Sprecher reingehört hatte.
Danach war es ein tolles Hörerlebnis.

Brings together some loose ends....

Kobna Holdbrook-Smith brings Peter Grant and all the other characters to live in his unique fantastic way! Couldn't image another voice being Peter's!
Lies Sleeping brings together some loose ends with which one was left after the last (two) books. I just loved it how characters Nd storylines re-occur and one can dive deeper into the characters as well as the looong history of the city.
Leslie's behaviour is still erratic and I didn't buy the motive presented is all that's driving her. so very excited how things will go forward with her.

Personaly, I didn't like the end and am curious how things are going to evolve around Peter and Beverley....

The narrator is the perfect match for the story

I loved the rendition of the main character (and most others) by the narrator. And truly enjoyed the story, though I perhaps enjoy the characters in the story even more than the story itself.

Worthy conclusion to the saga.

Not just a quite satisfying conclusion to the preceeding books - giving us sufficient closure without tying everything off in too neat a bow - but as always masterfully narrated. Just listening to Holbrook-Smith is a pure joy.
