Anthony Hetheridge, ninth Baron of Wellegrave and Chief Superintendent for New Scotland Yard, has never married, has no children, no pets, no hobbies, and not even an interesting vice - and will turn sixty in three weeks. With the exception of his chosen career, too sordid for his blue-blooded family to condone, his life has been safe and predictable. But then he meets Detective Sergeant Kate Wakefield - beautiful, willful, and nearly half his age.
When Hetheridge saves the outspoken, impetuous young detective from getting the sack, siding with her against Scotland Yard's powerful male hierarchy, his cold, elegantly balanced world spins out of control.
Summoned to London's fashionable Belgravia to investigate the brutal murder of a financier, Hetheridge must catch the killer while coping with his growing attraction to Kate, the reappearance of an old flame, and a secret that emerges from his past.

The story is good, but the narration ruined it.
Jack Wallen assumed voices that demeaned the intelligence of the characters, in particular Kate and Bahr. Kate is an intelligent woman, and he made her sound stupid and unprofessional.
I enjoy reading the series and would have enjoyed a decent narration. It is unbelievable that the author (if she had any say) approved this narrator. I would only buy another Audible in this series if the narrator is changed.
It was a good mystery with a back story. Bit too much back story, but barely so.
