As 35th in line for the throne, Lady Georgiana Rannoch may not be the most sophisticated young woman, but she knows her table manners. It's forks on the left, knives on the right - not in His Majesty's back….

As usual, Katherine Kellgren captures the characters masterfully with accent, inflection, dialect and detail of Rhys Bowen’s written word. From the aristocratic commanding timbre of her grace,the duchess, to the dignified calm of the butler, each character comes alive in a gripping story. On to the next in the series!

Late December, 1818: As Captain Gabriel Lacey prepares for his upcoming wedding, his former neighbor, Marianne Simmons, comes to him about an actress friend who's gone missing. Lacey agrees to help look for the actress, little realizing that the search will pit him against men who think nothing of abduction, assault, or sending incendiary devices to the innocent.

Another brilliantly complex story with unexpected twists and turns. Thoroughly enjoy the characters as presented by the narrator...love Grenville! A Disappearance in Drury Lane brings out, once again, the fascinating societal rules of the era and the delightful characters that circumvent those rules. Intrigue, surprise and glimpses of the lives of the rich, the poor and the middle classes of the 19th century.

A mystery with more questions the further you listen to the story. Every character has a secret, has a reason to be suspect yet the final five minutes had me sitting in the driveway to hear the conclusion. Never saw it coming!!

An atmospheric debut novel set on the gritty streets of Victorian London, Some Danger Involved introduces detective Cyrus Barker and his assistant, Thomas Llewelyn, as they work to solve the gruesome murder of a young scholar in London's Jewish ghetto. When the eccentric and enigmatic Barker takes the case, he must hire an assistant, and out of all who answer an ad for a position with "some danger involved", he chooses downtrodden Llewelyn, a gutsy young man with a murky past.
