Publisher's Summary

At her friend Ivy's behest, Lady Emily Ashton reluctantly agrees to attend a party at the sprawling English country estate of a man she finds odious. But the despised Lord Fortescue is not to be her greatest problem.
Kristiana von Lange, an Austrian countess once linked romantically with Emily's fiancé, the debonair Colin Hargreaves, is a guest also. And a tedious evening turns deadly when their host is found murdered, and his protégé, Robert Brandon - Ivy's husband - is arrested for the crime.
Determined to right a terrible wrong, Emily embarks on a quest that will lead her from London's glittering ballrooms to Vienna's sordid backstreets - and into a game of wits with a notorious anarchist. But putting Colin in deadly peril may be the price for exonerating Robert - forcing the intrepid Emily to bargain with her nemesis, the Countess von Lange, for the life of her fiancé.

Good story- if you can get past the narration

The narration is so distracting it's difficult to follow the story. Quite amateurish. I've listened to all the others in this series and that is the ONLY reason I didn't return the book after the first five minutes.

- Oh Good Grief

Horrible Narration!

I suffered through this book ONLY because I love the series and subsequent books have a different narrator. The narration started out badly and only got worse. The entire book is filled with mispronunciations, incorrect emphases and confused character voices. At one point, the narrator uses at least two different accents and voices for a monologue of a message sent from the butler. It was confusing. I will be sure to avoid ALL books with this narrator and am shocked that she has narrated over 40 books. Audible must be desperate for narrators!
