    "Gripping stuff"
    Would you listen to Treachery again? Why?

    There was so much detail, creating a great visual effect. Another listen would reveal even more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It had a good pace, no filling in.


    What about Laurence Kennedy’s performance did you like?

    The accent was not overdone and kept constant throughout.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, but it did make you like or dislike the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    My first Parris book but not my last!

    "Enjoyable BUT......................."
    What did you like best about Treachery? What did you like least?

    I find this series of books quite enjoyable as " light entertainment ". although I think this is the poorest to date of the Bruno series. Have read rather than listened to the previous books and this may be the reason because what I liked least was the narrator's pseudo Italian accent.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was fairly predictable.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Laurence Kennedy?

    Yes, it was just his Italian accent which I found irritating, otherwise he was very good.


    Did Treachery inspire you to do anything?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I tend to prefer my history reading or listening to be more factual and less romantic but occasionally I enjoy something lighter and Treachery is just that. Enjoyable but not for the purist.

    "Excellent"

    This is a really good, complicated tale of treason and murder in Elizabethan England. The lead character is multi-dimensional... an Italian ex-Dominican monk, who works for Walsingham and solves murders. The reader, Laurence Kennedy, is also excellent, with convincing accents and good pace. Altogether I really enjoyed this and although this is the most recent book in the series, I am now going back to all the earlier ones.

    "Tedious"

    The story was lame. The narrator was great. I expected more bite. Maybe a second listening would do the book justice.

    "The saga moves on..."

    Will try to avoid spoilers. Probably the best to date in this series, tighter plotting, more action - and the prospect of Doctor Bruno's tale moving from England to France, with all of the dangers that will bring.
