This is not only an extremely well written historical mystery novel, but is filled with tension and self discovery that keeps racheting up while keeping the story moving. If you like mysteries at all, pick this one up.
Absolute bluestocking & love it!!
Never read/listened to such an amazing story! Two mysteries woven together with great skill. Enjoyed getting to know the characters and trying to figure it it ( never did).
Davina Porter is so great - so what could possibly be better! 5*
Great story. Great narrator. Cant wait to read the next in this series. Thanks Audio
50ish retired public radio news broadcaster, female, rancher. I love good writing from historical fiction and interesting, off beat mysteries to history of religions and interesting biography coupled with excellent voicing. I have no use for poorly delivered reading. I'll suffer though so-so writing if the content is engaging, but if the narrator is bad, I'll buy the book and read it myself.
Never lagged. The protagonist's struggle with amnesia was masterfully told. Excellent mystery and terrific period piece. Can't wait to listen to the next one.
absolutely love it! the story is engaging and full of lovely details about the Victorian period. The characters well developed and the narrator brings each one to life.
This was a nice surprise from a randomly chosen book. The story is well told. I didn't find it predictable and that kept the mystery aspect rolling. Love the reader, too!
I listened to this story a few years ago. I forgot many parts of the plot . It was like hearing it for the first time. It was thrilling and engaging. I felt as if I was there walking with Monk as he slowly discovered himself.
