It's no rest for the wicked when Kate Shackleton picks up her second professional sleuthing case. But exposing the culprit of a pawn-shop robbery turns sinister when her investigation takes her to the wealthy neighborhoods of Harrogate - and murder is only one step behind. A night at the theater should have been just what the doctor ordered, until Kate stumbles across a body in the doorway. The knife sticking out of its chest definitely suggests a killer in the theater's midst.
Kate likes nothing better than a mystery - except solving it. So when a ransom note demands GBP 1,000 for the safe return of the play's leading lady, Kate must piece together clues - and lure criminals out of their lairs.

I had so looked forward to this second book in the series. The narrator for Dying in the Wool had a quickness to her speech with such natural modulation that I could almost "hear" the smile in her voice when something was humorous. Not so in this book! The narrator sloooowwwly murmurs her words with hardly any change in tone. I have listened to only an hour and I can hardly distinguish when she changes from one character to another. She sounds like she is reciting sentences rather than giving any emotional quality to her "performance." I have belonged to Audible since the beginning and this might be the ONLY book I ever gave up on!
Please make sure you listen to the sample before you spend money on this book. Maybe if I had done so I would not be stuck with something I dread trying to finish!
