This first book in the series is a wonderful historical suspense set in Victorian England. Detective Bloodstone is definitely worth listening to this book for. He is an unassuming hero you can't help but love. I wasn't sure how I would like the book at first as I found the subject matter at the beginning of the book a little disturbing. Nevertheless, I persevered and was glad I did. Chris Karlsen gives us strong and well developed characters. The story is interesting with a combination of suspense, comedy and even a wee bit of romance. The villain is certainly deserving of the label. He believes he is justified in what he does and he gives Detective Bloodstone a run for his money! I look forward to listening to more books in this series based on historical suspense with a touch of romance.
David Bufton did a nice job of narrating.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The narrator's voice could have had a lot more feeling.
Would you ever listen to anything by Chris Karlsen again?
Would you be willing to try another one of David Bufton’s performances?
Any additional comments?
I guessed this book was written by an American even before I'd checked. A "Mills & Boon" idea of "Olde England" and read by a man who seemed uninterested in the story, with a very monotonous voice and absolutely no feeling.
