Publisher's Summary

London, 1841. Returned from their adventures in India, Jeremiah Blake and William Avery have both had their difficulties adapting to life in Victorian England. Moreover, time and distance have weakened the close bond between them, forged in the jungles of India. Then a shocking series of murders in the world of London's gutter press forces them back together. The police seem mysteriously unwilling to investigate, then connections emerge between the murdered men and the growing and unpredictable movement demanding the right to vote for all. In the backstreets of Drury Lane, among criminals, whores, pornographers, and missionaries, Blake and Avery must race against time to find the culprit before he kills again. But what if the murderer is being protected by some of the highest powers in the land?

It's been awhile since I devoured 2 books in as many days. I thoroughly enjoyed the second book in which I hope will be a long series.

M. J. Carter creates a great maze of a story, you venture in and you must go forward. She draws great characters and plausible suspects, few are what they seem. Set against the highly volatile Chartist and reform movements in mid 19th century England. The history of these movements is well explained, and did not bog down the story at all. I can't wait for the next book.

It doesn't hurt at all that another favorite author of mine Imogen Robertson gave a very positive review of Ms. Carter's work.

Alex Wyndham once again gives a stellar performance. He had one hell of a lot of accents to deal with and he carries them off flawlessly. I can listen to him for hours.

Another Great Historical Adventure

Where does Infidel Stain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the top 10%. Memorable characters, a mystery and a look at the grimness of 19th century England for the non-wealthy. M.J. Carter covers the painful birth of a new middle class, prison reform, trade unions and labor laws as workers displaced by budding technology seek to find a voice in government. I look forward to more Blake and Avery.
