Publisher's Summary

Two weeks before the big day, Welsh Constable Evans is ready to be done planning for his wedding. Just as he's unloading the last boxes into the new home he and his bride, Bronwen, have chosen, he runs into a teenager whose girlfriend has gone missing on Mt. Snowdon. Despite his apprehensions about getting involved in a new case, Evans cannot resist helping the worried hiker. A search yields no trace of the girl but does turn up a well-stocked bunker, complete with chains and handcuffs. Are the two related? And if so, where is the girl being held? When a series of clues is uncovered, Evans and the police begin to see that they are dealing with a clever but twisted mind. Then a second person vanishes and this time Evans knows the victim: Bronwen. He realizes the culprit's vendetta might be a personal one and that the actual target might have been him all along.
Award winner Rhys Bowen, whose most recent Constable Evans novel, Evan's Gate, was a finalist for the Edgar Award for best mystery novel of the year, delivers another charming and suspenseful cozy mystery set in beautiful Wales and starring fan favorite village constable Evan Evans.

Would you listen to Evan Blessed again? Why?

I read a lot of the reviews and they all said the narrations weren’t very good. As one said review said it didn’t sound very British. As a Welsh American I can tell you it sounds Welsh not everyone in Great Britain sound like some one out of London. The Welsh have their very own sound just like the Scottish and Irish. All Celtics sound different. I would hope that you would understand that Wales is its own country with its own language and customs. We are very proud of being welsh and we have worked very hard to keep those things that make us Welsh alive both in Wales and around the World. I feel the Narrator did an admiral job with the accent many well known actors say they have a hard time with the accent. So when you listen to this book please look at it as a way of also of a way of enjoying a beautiful country a people. Maybe learn a little about a country in the British Isle that doesn’t get written about in fiction at least on this side of the pond.

Love Constable Evans!

This is the first book other than the Royal Spyness books that I've read by Rhys Bowen. I liked the other books so well that I bought this without even looking at the reviews. I was not disappointed in any way. They aren't quite as funny as the Spyness books but the mystery was good and has a couple of twists in it. I LOVED the narrator's Welsh accent and he just added to the book. If I had read this I know that I would have been left wondering how to pronounce all those names. They just roll right off of John Lee's tongue. I stayed up way past my bedtime to get closer to the end and then had to sleep. I was up at 6 and finishing the story. I won't like functioning today but it was a great story. I wish Audible would get all her books.on audio. I think I'd buy them all! More Rhys Bowen and Constable Evans Please!! Guess I'll have to go to the library to check out some paper books for a change. My housework and husband would prefer I do audio.... I get more done that way. If you love mysteries, you will probably love this book... If you love hunky voices with accents, you'll love this book whether you like mysteries or not. Well worth my credit.
