Publisher's Summary

Captain John Staple’s exploits in the Peninsula had earned him the sobriquet Crazy Jack amongst his fellows in the Dragoon Guards. Now home from Waterloo, life in peacetime is rather dull for the adventure-loving captain. But when he finds himself lost at an unmanned toll-house in the Pennines, his soldiering days suddenly pale away beside an adventure - and romance - of a lifetime.

Book Great! Narrator STINKS

Have you ever wanted an Audible book and it finally showed up? You are so excited! BUT, then you hear to the WORST voice you have ever listened to!!!

I will listen to this again,(because I LOVE the book) but Audible PLEASE don't have Daniel Hill narrate anymore Georgette Heyer books.

His normal voice is pleasant...his characters are horrible.

I love Audible...I don't have the time anymore to sit down and read. I listen as I am working on a project. Thank you so much for the wonderful books you have.

Heyerites will hate this review

For the most part, I'm really enjoying the Heyer novels available on Audible. I can suspend my disbelief and 21st century sensibilites and sympathecially enter the universe she creates --For me, she shatters this otherwise moral universe in this and in "Devil's Cub" with a casual, flippant attitude towards violence --- Too bad, because 90% of this one is prime Heyer - more her mystery mode than romance, though.

If you are a casual Heyer reader, I'd suggest choosing another of her novels. If you don't agree with my "violence" objection, the narration, while OK, is not up to par with most of the others and her usual plot elements are better woven in several others.
