I have many books in my library that I started and simply could not get through. This was not one of them. Good story, interesting characters with depth and decent narration. I would recommend it if you are interested in a fast moving mystery with a bit of history.

Great story with wonderful period detail, but somehow manages to take real characters and suck the life out of them. Ornate prose style badly served by melodramatic narration, with some jarring errors in pronunciation and emphasis. Not worthwhile.

I have been listening to historical murders for 5 years with Ann Perry being one of my favourite writers. This book is well above my previous reading as it keeps you in it's grip through every word. You are just waiting for the next line to be read to see where it takes you.The reader was first class and kept me at the edge of his next word, he was fluant and firm in all the right places. If you get a chance listen to this book and I hope there are more from the same author.

Whilst I wouldn't say it was one of the most riveting books I have ever read it was easy enough to read and I quite enjoyed it. Narrator was a little strange but as I continued listening he seemed to be right for the part. I think he was trying to portray the more formal and clipped speech that would have been used in the period.
Based on a true story with the author's fictional additions it made the story more interesting.
