Description

A thief named Coop-- a specialist in purloining magic objects-- steals and delivers a small box to the mysterious client who engaged his services. Coop doesn't know that his latest job could be the end of him-- and the rest of the world. Suddenly he finds himself in the company of the Department of Peculiar Science, a fearsome enforcement agency that polices the odd and strange. The box isn't just a supernatural heirloom with quaint powers, they tell him. It's a doomsday device. They think. And suddenly, everyone is out to get it.

Professional reviews

"The Everything Box is a mystical artifact of great power, lost by a minor angel many millennia ago. Fortunately, this audiobook has narrator Oliver Wyman, an Everything Box in his own right. In 2015, Coop, a thief who specializes in stealing magical objects, is kicked loose early from prison on the condition that he steal the box for a collector. But Coop gets picked up by the Department of Peculiar Science, an agency dedicated to the paranormal, whose members pressure him to steal the box back to keep his freedom. Besides the DPS, there are four other groups that have their own nefarious reasons for wanting the box. With an impressive mix of dialects, accents, and timbres, Wyman brings to life a diverse variety of characters, including a zombie. The result is a rollicking audio caper packed with bizarre creatures. D.E.M. 2017 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
