Anne Perry's writing bring the reader to the period in time when life was fragile.She does include in the story the political climate, the economics of the social system. The legal system that determined guilt and subsequently three weeks later the accused was hanged.The story was written during the time when opium was not regulated and the consequences were immediate.When I read Anne Perry's books, I know Monk's history and way of life. He didn't drop onto the page but emerged fully formed. When she write a Monk story, Monk doesn't change . The story developes around the character.
Story line weak.
Less filler It really didn't need to act out Harriet's play

Clear narrator. Easy to listen to.
This is the only audio book for this author I could find, it's an older book. Her writing is done very well, full characters, I'd like to listen to her more recent work.
