I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
I loved it. I think it's the best of the Thomas Pitt series. It's always good to find out how the characters met.
Excellent characters, story and performance. I especially appreciated the accurate portrayal of complex human emotions.
This book was recommended for me be Audible and I really did end up enjoying it. I'm definitely going to check out the rest of the books in the series!
I've listened to 5 of Anne Perry's Monk series and as much as I enjoyed them, I enjoyed this much more. Looking forward to following this series with much enthusiasm. Davina Porter's men's voices are so feminine that there is no suspension of disbelief for me, but I've listened to nine books narrated by her so I clearly like her well enough.
Well paced and enjoyable detective story based on snobby victorian ways and the upper and lower elements of old London town. First in a looong series, if you've got the time to spend watching the characters develop and the bad guys get caught.
I just love Davina Porter as a narrator. She's wonderful and could make the dictionary sound interesting. Her characters are distinctive and believable. Not at all overdone. I chose to start this book series because of her.
Anne Perry's story is good but it's long in portions. The mystery is well done though. I did very much enjoy the characters - they are developed nicely.
Overall - a well done story and performance.
Emily's proposal. The timing was off. And when Charlotte went out alone after her sister was murdered. Ridiculous.
I'm hoping the rest of the series is better. The characters were one dimensional.
Enjoyed this one immensely. Highly recommended for readers like me who want cleanish content but don't want silly writing. It was realistic enough for me and yet felt somewhat indulgent.
