Description

Eddie Drood's evil-stomping skills have come to the attention of the legendary Alexander King, independent agent extraordinaire. The best of the best, King spent a lifetime working for anyone and everyone, doing anything and everything, for the right price.

Now he's on his deathbed and looking to bestow all of his priceless secrets to a successor, provided he or she wins a contest to solve the world's greatest mysteries. Eddie has to win, because King holds the most important secret of all to the Droods - the identity of the traitor in their midst.

Several improvements in this book.

I have to say all the books in this series have been pretty good. I like this one best so far. That is because the author finally settles in to tell the story and tones down the constant braggadocio about the droods. That was the only real complaint I had with the series and now that it is better this was a pleasure to read.

The narrarator changed, but I like him better anyway. Mr. Langdon has a better range than the previous person and the voices are not quite so cartoony. So, two thumbs up for this one. If you liked the other books in the series you will definitely enjoy this one as well.

Audiobook series are driven by narration!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would have stayed with Stuart Blinder as narrator. I didn't care for himat first but he grew on me after a couple of books. I am sure Mr. Langdon is a competent narrator, but his voice changed the character of the book series in an unforgivable way.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of James Langdon?

Stuart Blindor or Marc Vietor

Was The Spy Who Haunted Me worth the listening time?

Not particularly.

Any additional comments?

I see that there is yet another narrator change for the next book. I hope his take on the characters is better.

Secret histories gaiden

The whole story is entertaining but given that there are very limited stakes the whole book feels like a side story. Most characters from earlier novels are missing while we have some more cross book series cameos in return which is a little disappointing. The biggest downside is the overall structure around 5 mysteries, each of which would be a fine short story, but the binding glue is weak with an unsatisfactory villain (in reality the villain of the last mystery feels more dangerous) and various inconsistencies, leaving a lot of open questions. Despite all the complaining the book was very well read as usual and overall enjoyable. Not greens best, and in particular a further step down from the previous making me worry about the trend, but fast pace and perfect for background listening.

slower pace than his other books.

One of my least favorite books from a favorite author. I loved it for the characters, but I found the pace dragged.

Light reading - different narrrator

Stuart Blinder narrated the first two books quite brilliantly - his style fits well with the not-quite-serious style of the series.
James Langdon is an excellent narrator as well - but for this purpose and series he is not quite in the same league as Blinder.

The book itself is very light but entertaining reading - not quite a guilty pleasure but close - I like it even though.
However, I wish Green would put in a bit more effort to avoid completely unnecessary(!) logic and continuity mistakes.
They did not much reduce my pleasure of listening to this - but they are annoying because most of them could have been avoided so easily.
