About this audiobook

She can speak all languages. He can smell evil intent.

They're enemies. They crave each other.

Secret magic, international settings, a conspiracy plot, star-crossed lovers, and sharp writing -- The Demon in Business Class is a stunning debut novel spanning continents and genres.

Zarabeth travels the world for a shady executive, laying the groundwork for global war.

Gabriel offers a second chance to the criminals that a visionary leader sees in dreams.

One rainy night in Scotland, they meet...

Now, it's complicated.

There's also the investigator, the witch, the playboy, the gangster, the cultist, the pre-school teacher, the two angels...

And, the demon.

Fans of Jeff VanderMeer and David Mitchell will love this stylish cross-genre novel. Gorgeously narrated by Laura Petersen, The Demon in Business Class is an international story of fantasy, intrigue, and love, on the uneasy ground where the human meets the divine.

I'm not sure how to classify this book. It's some unique flavor of sci-fi / fantasy / horror / suspense / thriller. It's also a love story. In general, I recommend this book for good storytelling. The author has created a cast of characters that are very real. You'll care about them, root for them and wish you could follow their lives further once this story is over. The story is fast-paced. Suspense is achieved through the rhythm of switching perspectives between dual protagonists. This world feels like our reality, except there's a little more going on than we've been allowed to know. Some revelations are exciting and attractive, some are banal and disgusting. The reader, Laura Peterson does an incredible job with this book. She voices dozens of characters and almost as many accents ranging from Lower Kentucky to Mandarin Chinese. Her read is an incredible performance, independent of the text, as much actress as orator. I was fully consumed with this book while reading it. I was sad for days when the story was over. The characters have stayed with me, especially Zarabeth & Gabriel. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

Oh wow this was an amazing read,i truly enjoyed listening, it is a fantasy that is act Written in a finely-chiseled style with vivid imagery, The Demon in Business Class draws you into a world of demons and witches who intermingle with the corporate suits. Gabriel and Zarabeth get under your skin as quickly as they get under each other’s. Theirs is a high-voltage relationship drawn in visceral detail… They come to realize the stakes are high, Heaven vs. Hell high., I wish I could write more.

This was a great read for me. I love crime stories, horror and sci-fi stories and this is a bit of a blend. I really enjoyed the variety of characters in this book and their personalities, they were unique while ensuring they added substance to the storyline. I would definitely recommend. The book is a bit long but does not leaving you lingering or disappoint. It keeps you interested wanting to know what happen to this person and why are they where they are along they way. I love being intrigued and letting my mind wonder a bit, this book allows for this to happen.
