Narrator Elena Valentine introduces Alice Carter, who is in training to become a detective in Book 2 of this series. (Beginning with Book 1 is a must.) Listeners relish meeting the "ploids" division of London's Metropolitan Police. The "ploids" possess unusual traits that set them apart, including Carter's overabundance of static, which can act as a weapon. Valentine excels with diverse accents--Russian, Italian, and multiple London accents--and adds other vocal features to further identify the characters. The standout is flamboyant, gay Vinnie, who can grab objects with his long tongue, which unnerves suspects, making him an extremely effective police presence. Colorful London depictions, creepy--sometimes gross--situations, and a lighthearted view of superheroes blend with humor, mystery, and science fiction for an unusual contemporary series.
