A Mick Oberon Job
1 : Hot Lead, Cold Iron

by Ari Marmell
Dec 3, 2014
7 Hours
Ages 18+
Chicago, 1932. Mick Oberon may look like just another private detective, but beneath the fedora and the overcoat, he's got pointy ears and he's packing a wand.

Oberon's used to solving supernatural crimes, but the latest one's extra weird. A mobster's daughter was kidnapped sixteen years ago, replaced with a changeling, and Mick's been hired to find the real child. The trail's gone cold, but what there is leads Sideways, to the world of the Fae, where the Seelie Court rules. And Mick's not really welcome in the Seelie Court any more. He'll have to wade through Fae politics and mob power struggles to find the kidnapper – and of course it's the last person he expected.

A Truly Delightful Listen! by Cerise (Posted on 2/6/2019)
The title description drew my interest and I decided to give it a try. I am so, so happy I did! I adore detective stories, and when they have a fantasy twist, I'm simply in heaven. The whole production for this book was stellar and I finished it with sadness that it was over and excitement that there was another book in line waiting for me...
Breezy, First-Person Magical Gumshoe by Catdaddy (Posted on 8/25/2018)
As you are reading this review, a minor spoiler of the first 15 minutes is par, right? OK, the story is: Raymond Chandler meets Harry Potter meets The Godfather meets Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night's Dream.”

The title character's last name is a clue. Based on a few consistent references in the script, the story takes place in 1932. The Noir vibe allows for plenty of tough-guy fighting, and the story is peppered with steady use of casual, strong language. It is narrated – happily in the first person, like “Green Lantern: First Flight” – by Eric Messner, using a dodgy, occasionally slightly Irish accent. Despite that, Messner is always highly affable, any first-person narrative always more engaging... and the gangster setting is a lot of fun.

The story is enjoyable, rather breezy and – barring an unfortunately consistent number of F-bombs – reasonably harmless for teen listeners. The layers of magical Laws from Irish mythology are an added treat. Recommended.
Looking for Harry Dresden or Atticus O'Sullivan (aka. Siodhachan O Suileabhain) but you can't find them? by James (Posted on 8/8/2018)
If you like Urban fantasy like the Dresden Files or the Iron Druid Chronicles you will love Mick Oberon. Its an original take on the world of magic, the fae and the rest of urban fantasy genre. The performance was very well done. The main narrator is perfect for the part.
Fantastic PI adventure by Allan (Posted on 7/29/2017)
I really enjoyed listening to this story. I found it entertaining and very well done.

this was an interesting book kind of a cross between harry potter and columbo
Great Series by Avinash (Posted on 5/3/2017)

awesome by John (Posted on 2/9/2017)
Very good by William (Posted on 1/1/2017)
I bought this on a whim a month or so back and really glad I did. It was very enjoyable and fresh. Quick to get into and very funny. Already have book 2 and hopefully book 3 will come out soon. Reminded me of the Golgotha series.
good but not great by Bos (Posted on 11/1/2016)
the story had a good twist in the end but I didn't find the main character's sarcasm funny.
Not so sure about that accent but, by Chloe (Posted on 9/24/2016)
I loved it. Such a fun fantasy reimagining.
Wonderful mix by Aryn (Posted on 9/9/2016)
A great blend between fantasy and snarky detective work. The mix of the different traditions of faerie lore is wonderful. Mick is a great narrator and the story comes alive through his descriptions and little asides. This is a superb book and I can't wait to listen to the next one.
Great Story, Too much Slang. Slow in the middle by Amy (Posted on 7/9/2016)
This story started out with a bang, and for the first half, I loved it. I loved Mick's voice, and loved learning about this faerie lore. Unfortunately, it started to slow for me in the middle, and I got so bored I skimmed to the end.

Great story
Great Story by cody (Posted on 4/3/2016)
Great like the 1920's gangster feel and the narration and use of music couldnt have been better.

Great story
the fantasy version of the nuclear bombshell by c (Posted on 12/2/2015)
if zach johnson had pointy ears and a magic wand and was transported to prohibition era chicago you get this. it's another humor series that i wish ga produced more of.
Sam Spade move over by Michael (Posted on 10/27/2015)
What a great book. Exciting, well "written", well acted.

Mick Oberson, a Fae in 1930's Chicago takes on the worst of this world and his. The language is a little ... spicy... but well within what you would expect from the characters.
Wow by Dave (Posted on 10/15/2015)
Bought this on a whim. and Loved it. just wow the music, the history. I'm looking forward to the next one hope I can wait that long.
Great Story, Excellent Use of Music by Jennifer (Posted on 9/11/2015)
Since my husband is big into tabletop gaming, I’m familiar with the name Ari Marmell, but I hadn’t before read his fiction. I’m so glad I picked up Hot Lead, Cold Iron in Graphic Audio as it’s now a new favorite.

Set in the early 1930’s in an alternate Chicago where magic and the supernatural exist, the story is, essentially, a noir detective mystery. The period-style music used in the production really enhances this sense of “noir,” in addition to the voice acting and character’s use of period slang. The main character, Mick, takes a side trip to Faerie, and the Celtic music used behind that piece of narrative is just perfect. I can’t say I’ve paid too much attention to the music used in previous GA titles I’ve heard, much like one doesn’t pay too much attention to the background music used in television shows. But the musical choices in Hot Lead, Cold Iron really stand out as purposeful and make the production very enjoyable.

I love some of the traditional faerie details used in the story, such as the use of salt to dispel bad luck and Mick’s love of milk and cream. But there are some fun unique aspects, too, such as Faerie being patterned after earth because the Fae are essentially mimics. Mick’s snark makes him a perfect detective of the genre and is fun to hear.

I hope there will be more Mick Oberon books done by Graphic Audio. I really enjoyed this first installment.

Mick Oberon Job 1 by Michael (Posted on 8/11/2015)
This was outstanding! Like a Supernatural Maltese Falcon co starring Tony Soprano! Love it love it love it. I've listened to it three times already.can't wait for the next one. Highly recommended!
Snarky Fairy by Daniel (Posted on 6/7/2015)
It is really well done. I love the snark and the story.

A great mix of the old black and white Humphrey Bogart mystery with a Fantasy/Fables twist. I can't wait to have the next one. A new series I have to have from Graphic Audio

Great story by Christopher (Posted on 4/26/2015)
I loved the story and the voice acting. This is a great new series and I can't wait for more.
Hot Damn! by Jared (Posted on 2/21/2015)
A fun story in the same vein of the Dresden Files, or so I believe it to be. Mick's an interesting guy, and I wanna hear more of his adventures! I'll admit, I'd been nervous at first, but I was won over within the first three minutes easily. A good strong hook will always do it, and damn..
A Mic Oberon Job by Robert (Posted on 1/29/2015)
5 stars. I can't wait until book 2. Give it 10 minutes and you'll be hooked.
Enjoyable Storyline by Jamee (Posted on 1/16/2015)
Although I was hesitant to start this series, I was hooked within the first 15 minutes. As always GA does a superb production, thus listeners will not be disappointed. Hat tip to GA-
