    1799. As the British Army fights its way through India toward a diabolical trap, the young and illiterate private Richard Sharpe must battle both man and beast behind enemy lines, in an attempt to push the ruthless Tippoo of Mysore from his throne and drive his French allies out of India.

    "The best reader"
    Overall

    Frederick Davidson is the best reader I've yet listened to on Audible. His various "voices" made the story very personal. The torture and battle descriptions were a bit gruesome but likely in keeping with the times. Cornwell makes history intriging. Can't wait to listen to the next in the series.

    Story

    Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers is at a loss: The daughter of her friend Taymullah Azhar has been taken by her mother, and Barbara can't really help - Azhar had never married Angelina, and his name isn't on Hadiyyah's, their daughter's, birth certificate. He has no legal claim. Azhar and Barbara hire a private detective, but the trail goes cold. Azhar is just beginning to accept his soul-crushing loss when Angelina reappears with shocking news: Hadiyyah is missing, kidnapped from an Italian marketplace.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Too many or too few details. Thought I'd missed a chapter at times.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I wouldn't make Havers appear to be so lovelorn and losing perspective.


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    Davina is always good. She spoke the Italian slowly; otherwise, would've been really lost.


    Do you think Just One Evil Act needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Definitely, we need to know what happened to whom. Some characters must be gone for good.


    Any additional comments?

    This is only Elizabeth George book I've been disappointed with.
