Not as promised.

The description of the book was the best thing about a story that had great potential. Weak characters, with a predictable plot line, like the previous reviewer, this story is aimed more to the beginning Harlequin reader. The narrator provided a excellent interpetation of the elegance of English with a beautiful British Accent. I finished this because I feel every book I purchase deserves to be read, but it was a struggle to finish.

Great narration & a wonderful story

I loved this book from start to finish. The narrator does an excellent job with all the different accents & makes you feel like you get to know each character on a personal level. The story itself is more of a slow read at first, which sets up the dramatic finish. I can honestly say that I did not see the end coming at all. I had all kinds of guesses but it blew me away how the author managed to keep me (the reader) on my toes. A great story & a great listen. I thoroughly enjoyed escaping to 1950's England through this mystery thriller
