The story was good. I've read other books by Carla Neggers and enjoyed them. The performance was so-so. It was difficult to distinguish the characters - almost like she forgot which one she was supposed to be - at times.
This story is interesting. It's the second in the series. I enjoyed the first one although the narrator's performance was quite uneven. It seemed she forgot which voice she used for which character. I was hoping she would improve becoming more familiar with the characters in the second book. Unfortunately she didn't because the same thing occurred. I would read the print books in the rest of the series but not listen to them with this narrator.
The narrator should go to dictionary dot com and search for livery and fete and click on the speaker icon to hear the correct pronunciation. Those two are the most obviously mispronounced words although there were quite a few others. Some of the characters' voices sounded the same and had dreadful accents.
I enjoyed this book. The narrator was a bit over the top with the Russian accent but it didn't really detract from the story.
I enjoyed this book. It's slightly more serious, not as much of a romp as some of their previous books but thoroughly enjoyable
The reader is superb. I always enjoy Stephanie Laurens' books, and Simon Prebble is my favorite reader of them. He always does all the characters very well. In this book, he made the hero so real that I felt like he was right next to me.
