Publisher's Summary

London, 1817
A Bow Street Runner summons Captain Gabriel Lacey to a Berkeley Square ballroom where a young dandy was stabbed to death during a society ball. The prime suspect: Lacey's former commander, Colonel Brandon.
Instead of denying the charges, Colonel Brandon allows himself to be arrested and claims, to Lacey's shock, that the lady he'd stayed protectively near at the ball is his mistress. Lacey realizes that he is the only person not convinced of Brandon's guilt - all present, including Brandon's wife, believe that Brandon committed the murder.
Colonel Brandon's reticence to tell the truth proves to be Lacey's greatest obstacle in his race against time to prove Brandon's innocence. As Lacey's relationship with Lady Breckenridge moves forward, his hunt for evidence to clear Brandon uncovers dark secrets that go back to the Peninsular Wars and involve the origins of Lacey's and Brandon's private battle.

I love this series

This series is so enjoyable and James Gillies is perfect as the narrator. Please hurry up with the next audio in the series. You are too far behind the books that have been released and I enjoy the narration too much to read them.

pretty good

Narrator is fantastic at putting and keeping you on the edge of your seat. His inflection and consistent character voices are a welcomed departure from some others. I found myself wincing and feeling nervous as if I were in a movie theater😁. Storyline will keep me coming back.
