Mary Jago had donated her own bone marrow to save the life of someone she didn’t know. And this generous act led directly to the bitter break-up of her affair with Alistair. For him, it was as though her beauty had been plundered.

Mystery with humor and insight

A great mix of mystery, humor and insight. I also enjoyed the setting -- near London's Hyde Park.

Another enjoyable story, great characters

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

Ruth Rendall creates characters you enjoy meeting, if only because of their quirky natures. This is another that pulls you into the story of their lives, and makes you want to find out what happens to them next.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Roman, the homeless man, who suffered such an incredible loss, but maintained his humanity, even on the streets. I enjoyed reading to find out what he would make of himself.

What about Simon Russell Beale’s performance did you like?

He has a good voice for the characters, but I had to keep adjusting the volume because he would occasionally read more softly.
