My favorite Charles Lenox mystery

Where does A Burial at Sea rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was a fun mystery with a favorite character as always. But it also provided excellent historical context of what it was like to be at sea as the naval sailing vessels were about to become obsolete. As usual, we received a detailed portrayal of class differences and how "gentlemen" actually lived. It was very enjoyable and I was so glad it was a bit longer and more involved than the earlier mysteries.

Fully Developed, wonderfully Narrated

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I've listened to the 1st book and this one, and by far like this one best. Navy and/or sea tales are not of significant interest, so had no real expectations for this book; and was I wrong. It is delightful, has a steady pace and I didn't get lost within the many characters. I would highly recommend this book. There is a twist that took me by surprise at the end, and I enjoyed his nephew's character amongst the other mature, gruff men.
