"I've been a scoundrel, a thief, a blackmailer, and a whore, but never a murderer. Until now...."
The year is 1929. As the world teeters on the brink of a global recession, Bletchley Park plays host to a rather special event. MI5 is celebrating its 20th anniversary, and a select band of former and current employees are gathering for a weekend of music, dance, and heavy drinking. Among them is Sir Hilary Manningham Butler, a middle-aged woman whose entire adult life has been spent masquerading as a man. She doesn't know why she has been invited - it has been many years since she left the secret service - but it is clear she is not the only one with things to hide. And when one of the other guests threatens to expose her secret, the consequences could prove disastrous for everyone.

Awesome story tho not about Bletchley!
I'm a history buff-I love to learn about little-known war stories. Bletchley Park is a building in the UK where Allies (WW2) deciphered Axis' militaryt codes. Though this story is fun and involves a scandal, it has nothing to do with miltary. It is a fun wicked story though.
My favorite part of the story was the party where the murders occur. There are several characters and twists and turns, and the way in which Sir Hillary's "secret" is revealed.
I thought Jack Treby was fantastic. I could listen to him all day long.
I received this audio book in exchange for an unbiased review via Audible.
