Publisher's Summary

Miss Sophie Tennant was a girl of 19, of sweet, if a bit sickly, disposition, and golden curls. She had been confined to her invalid's chair since her childhood after a bad fall. Her health had deteriorated rapidly following her parents' deaths, and she'd hardly risen from it since.
Sophie was waiting for her ladies' maid to wheel her to her bedchamber, when she screamed. In front of her she sees a dead body, white and pale in the candlelight. She reaches out a hand and touches its cheek.
It's hard like stone to the touch, but it's warm too, as though it hasn't been dead for a long time. She trembled. In the darkness, the statue whispered the word 'Aphrodite'.
What is the mystery of weeping statue?

This is a short novella type book and I listened to it in a day. A light mystery that is easy to get involve in the story. Narration is good and clear

introduces a detective I want to learn more about

Mixed review here: This is a "regency" mystery that introduces a Marquess as a sort-of detective. I say "sort-of" because he doesn't do much investigation but he does some. He is an interesting character, not necessarily likeable but intelligent and one I would like to read more about. I put "regency" in quotes because other than a reference to Pride and Prejudice being recently published and calling a wheelchair a Bath chair there was precious little of the traditional regency genre flavor to this. I liked the mystery and the inclusion of an invalid in the story.

The narration was fair. There were several instances of extraneous noises and a few mispronunciations. However, the narrator did a great job in the crucial scene and I was hanging on his every word.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
