THE ELEVENTH HOUR


The Eleventh Hour by Mark Hayden
Book 3 in The King's Watch series
Narrated by Ciaran Saward
Genre: urban fantasy crime fiction
Format: ebook & audiobookAudiobook


Another Day, Another Scar…

Conrad needs a rest, and so does Vicky, his partner in fighting magickal crimes. The universe has other ideas.

Conrad had planned the perfect weekend in the English Lake District – tie up some loose ends before spending the night with his girlfriend. Simple. What could possibly go wrong?

Everything is the answer. An innocent man is murdered to cover up magickal misdeeds, and before they can draw breath, Conrad and Vicky are on the trail of a Mage who hides behind dark magick to kill at a distance.

In the third book of Mark Hayden’s highly praised King’s Watch sequence, Conrad and Vicky have to unlock doors and penetrate the ancient families of the Lakeland Particular to unmask a killer with an agenda of vengeance who doesn’t care who dies on the way.

My Thoughts:
When I bought this book I was thinking, "what the fluff is that duck doing in the cover art?!?"... it made sense in the end.

What I wanted to know is, what did His Worship left Conrad? Other than the Badge of Office itself. There were a few things in that chip... Yeah, curiosity killed the cat. Good thing I am not a cat! That was not answered in this book though, but I am hoping that it will be in subsequent books.

If it was Lt. Eve Dallas of the In Death series by JD Robb, Augusta would be charged with accessory to murder. I know the Cloister Court is the magickal court and their rules could be different. But, howay, man! Augusta and everybody involved in the killing is not "did not do anything wrong"!

As usual, the story telling quality is superb! Not as much holes in the plot this time! Kudos to the author! And that I am now a firm rabid fan!
