The plot is pretty good--you can see partial solutions then another twist comes. I did not think the narration was very good. The speaker was clear, but the characterizations were distracting rather than enhancing. Also, my recording had a number of skips. They were short enough (I think) that they did not affect the story, but they were annoying.

How could the performance have been better?
I adore Elizabeth Peters and always enjoy her books. While Grace Conlin is not my favorite narrator for her books (who can compare to Barbara Rosenblat?), on other Jacqueline Kirby books she's done a fairly good job. This one, being set in England, exposes a major weakness of Ms Conlin. Accents. Her British accents are terrible. Not just bad, really, laughably bad. It made it almost painful to listen to this book, and I could barely finish.
Was The Murders of Richard III worth the listening time?
On this one and with this narrator, I really have to recommend just reading the book. The narration nearly ruined the whole thing for me.
