Highly improbable and painfully boring! I could not get through to the end and gave up more than half way into the book. Mycroft Holmes as a spiritualist?! Human sacrifice?! Oh, and Masons - make a badly put together literary soup.
Predictable actions and trite prose.
Good reader, but very weak story.
I love this series and was not disappointed by the new book in the series! A good story line, nicely outlined characters and a lot of interesting details make this book come alive.
A very good narration adds to the enjoyment. Once I started this book it was almost impossible to put it away.
I will definitely listen to it again and again!
This was a very pleasant surprise. A lovely new turn for M.C Beaton. It has become one of my new favorites and I will definitely listen to it again.
This is a comedy of manners, reminiscent of Oscar Wilde. Lots of humor through tears, lots of nice historical details.
The first meeting of Lady Fortescue and Colonel.
It is light, enjoyable reading at its best.
