Publisher's Summary

The sudden appearance of a sinister black hole in the English countryside leads to a baffling murder investigation for Ishmael Jones.

"The past is England's dreaming, and not all of it sleeps soundly...."

Ishmael Jones and his partner Penny have been despatched to assist a group of scientists who are investigating a mysterious black hole which has appeared on a Somerset hillside. Could it really be a doorway to another dimension, an opening into another world? 

When one of the scientists disappears into the hole - with fatal consequences - Ishmael must prove whether it was an accident - or murder. But with no clues, no witnesses, and no apparent motive, he has little to go on. Is there an alien predator at large, or is an all-too-human killer responsible? Only one thing is certain: if Ishmael does not uncover the truth in time, more deaths will follow.

Gildart Jackson's performance draws you in.

I've listened to all released titles in the Ishmael Jones series and I've listened to them more than once. I wasn't sure why I was so drawn to these books. The plots for each are basically the same; Ismael Jones often misses obvious clues or fails to act when even a human would; and, the continuity is sometimes a little wonky. However, the dialogue is reminiscent of that between Nick and Nora Charles (The Thin Man movie series - watch a black and white movie) and the characters are engaging. Most importantly, Gildart Jackson's performance draws you in and you're trapped. If you've ever listened to anything narrated by Jim Dale, you will have some understanding. His characters are strong, but more so his voice is like a cozy evening in front of the fire with a tumbler of very fine bourbon. Give it a listen. I think you'll be hooked.

Wonderful series

So happy to have discovered Ishmael Jones. Great characters and superb narration. Honestly the author can’t write these fast enough. I could easily devour one of these every month.
