Really enjoyed this one

I have had the pleasure of bearing witness to 3 other books this character had been in, and liked this one as well. It didn't feel as in depth as some others but was still captivating. Without this narrator though, I don't know that I would've liked it as much.

A quick and fun mystery

This is an intro into the Jake Crowley Adventure series, so it was a relatively short Sherlockian mystery with paranormal overtones and secret societies that pulls you right along while doing a solid job developing the main characters for the books that follow (all of which I am planning to listen to). While the story itself is fairly interesting and somewhat predicable, the characters are likably and the narration exceptional (worth the addition of a star).

I was given this free review copy (ARC) audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A Page-Turning Adventure

This was a well written, action packed book with Good Characters. I enjoyed the various tight circumstances Jake got himself into through out the book. I also was amused by Elizabeth Morgan's additude towards Jake at first and how it changed as the story progresses. Narrator does a Great job with the characters voices and the entire storyline. Looking forward to more by this author.

Another great Jake Crowley Adventure!💜

I’m really enjoying going on these adventures with Jake. So much mystery, mixed in with some magic and as always plenty of evil danger lurking around.
The narration by Jonathan Waters was performed wonderfully. He always manages to bring the characters to life in a way I feel engaged with the story. I can’t wait for the next book.
This story has an HEA and can be read as a standalone.
I highly recommend this book.

Adventure

Perfect narration from Jonathan Waters

Jake Crowley and Rose Black loads of action and adventure, humour, suspense, and archaeological history as the backdrop.

good story

very good story line and loved to roman links.
i feel the end was abit thin though.
explanations should of included the grieving mother and the cannabis farm should of been raided and the local police should of been found to be accountable too with descriptions of them being caught out and lead away too.

Another ripping Jake Crowley thriller!

Picking up the pieces after leaving the British SAS, Jake Crowley takes up a history teaching position at an exclusive private school in Sussex. Strange things have been happening in the village but when Jake starts to ask questions, he receives a hostile reception from the village and the school. Despite being a shorter novella, this gripping mystery / adventure packs a substantial punch as Jake uncovers a violent secret society and systemic criminal activity. As a prequel, we are given a taster of Jake’s specialised skills and training as well as the injury and trauma that led to his military discharge and we are introduced to Rose Black before she meets Jake. Jonathan Waters ramps up the excitement and tension with his excellent audio narration - loved his regional UK accents!
