Be sure to listen closely because the author sprinkles quite a few clues throught this clever story. The narration by Ellen Archer is spot on, not sure why some reviewers disliked her.
If you want to listen to a riveting mystery laced with humor, romance and cleverness then SILENT IN THE GRAVE is a great choice.

I love this series! If you have never read the first book, go read it first. This is book #5, so to truly enjoy it you need to read the others.

The story is outstanding! I was actually surprised in the end by this one. Some stories are predictable, but this is very good.
This story takes place in London a few months after their arrival back from India and their long honeymoon. It’s fun to listen how Lady Julia settles or unsettles into domestic life. Of course there is a murder or two, Julia gets into trouble and keeps secrets like she always seems to do. Brisbane is his usual heroic, brooding, dashing self. More secrets with a great ending, just a little sad. Loved it!
I have not found another author that I put up with my favorite the great Elisabeth Peters until now. Deanna Raybourn has such a gift for putting depth..Show More » and feeling into her characters that they become friends to you. Ellen Archer is also one of my favorite narrators. Her talent makes the the different men and women she plays come to life. So many a good book is ruined in the telling by a poor choice of narrator, not so in this wonderful series! I love a good historical mystery with a splash of romance and also humour and these books deliver! Thank you Dianna and Ellen ! I hope for more information full size novels to come!
