With a rumbling baritone and the deft familiarity of a series veteran, narrator Kobna Holdbrook-Smith returns to the seventh installment in the Rivers of London series. Peter Grant, wizard and detective, continues the hunt for The Faceless Man, with help of his colleague and former friend, Lesley May. As Grant meets a wide cast of characters, Holdbrook-Smith shows remarkable comfort switching between personalities of various ages, backgrounds, and accents in the many scenes of dialogue and interrogation. A measured pace helps listeners unravel the latest turns in Aaronovitch's fantasy. While prior knowledge of Grant's journey is certainly helpful at this advanced stage in the story, Holdbrook-Smith's delivery works to orient new audiences quickly.
