Review of 'Whispers Underground' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

Enjoyable as always. I just enjoy the setting a lot, and Peter Grant is just a charming, witty character.

Compared to the previous book I was a tad disappointed. I really enjoyed the overall story arc and the big villain, the Faceless Man, that we got at the end of the previous book. I had hoped we would learn more about him and his machinations, but alas, there was just a brief mention, with the only mystery being who the heck the nurse was.

Still highly recommending this series.
