    "Great book"

    I loved this book. Tom Wasp, chimney sweep, is the main protagonist, and the guy who reads the book does a wonderful job with the Cockney accent (wonderful in that he sounds Cockney, but you can understand him). Tom is a great character. I hope more of Amy Myers' Tom Wasp books (if there are any) are recorded. They're are much less dismal and move along much more quickly than Anne Perry's books in a similar Victorian setting. Tom has a great "voice," and he hasn't lost his sense of humor, even though his circumstances are dire.
