    Lily discovers lifelong Shakespeare resident Deedra Dean murdered inside a car parked in a woodsy area out town. Determined not to get involved, Lily wants to leave the police work to Sheriff Marta Schuster and her team of deputies, and concentrate on cleaning, high kicks, and her boyfriend Jack's impending visit. But when Deedra's notoriously promiscuous lifestyle provides an extensive list of suspects but very few clues, Lily has no choice but to resume the role of amateur detective and join the investigation.

    In the dark days of King James I, a man must know his enemies to survive. To Henry Gresham, gentleman, scholar, courtier, and spy, William Shadwell is invaluable. A thief, informer, double-dealer, and pimp, he may not be the most moral of men, but he is one of Gresham's best sources. When Shadwell is murdered, Gresham's enquiries uncover a plot so audacious it is scarcely believable.

    Cambridge University, 1888. The world of Miss Vanessa Duncan, a young schoolmistress, is shattered when a Fellow of Mathematics, Mr Akers, is found dead. Another death occurs and Vanessa's new love becomes a suspect. Convinced of his innocence, Vanessa sets about to clear his name.

    Overall

    This is a premier listen. And it is far more that a whodunnit set in 1888. This is a wonderful story of a young woman establishing herself in a period long before it was fashionable (or easy) for a woman to be independent. The story is told through a series of letters to Vanessa's twin sister and while the central point is the resolution of three murders the story has a wider appeal, dealing with Vanessa's life, her circumstances and her romantic involvement with the accused. A wonderful story and Liz Hollis' narration was inspired!
