When a maid in the upper class Ellison household is strangled, Inspector Pitt is called in to investigate. He finds a world ruled by strict manners and social customs, where the inhabitants of the Ellison's neighborhood appear to be more outraged by the thought of scandal than they are by murder. Inspector Pitt finds a most unlikely ally in Charlotte, the Ellison's spirited daughter. But as the murders continue, Charlotte and Pitt find themselves drawn together by more than the investigation.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I recommend to anyone who likes a mystery and doesn't like too much blood and gore. no bad language or violence. there were murders but we didn;t witness them.
the relationships were appropriate as well. Victorian England and all.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I kept being fooled as to who did it. all the suspects were so plausible. In the end I did guess it though. but that was fine.

Which character – as performed by Christina Moore – was your favorite?

Davina Porter was the narator and she could read the phone book and it would be good.
My favorite character was Georgiana.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listen while driving only. I looked for heavy traffic!!!

Any additional comments?

I plan on reading or listening to this entire series. very enjoyable

A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Montalvan never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq. After returning home, however, the pressures of his physical wounds, traumatic brain injury, and post-traumatic stress disorder began to take their toll. In constant physical pain, he soon found himself unable to climb a simple flight of stairs or face a bus ride to the VA hospital. He drank; he argued; he cut himself off from those he loved. Then Luis met Tuesday, a beautiful and sensitive golden retriever....

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

yes I have already. I just loved the story and the dog

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tuesday- I have a golden retriever also. altho he is not trained like Tuesday I could see some similar traits that he does by his inate nature.

Have you listened to any of Luis Carlos Montalvan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not heard any of LC Montalvan;s other narrations if there are any

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

the dog that was more than possible

Any additional comments?

I just loved this book. I laughed, I cried, and I was astounded at what I learned about the Iraq war. I can;t recommend this more highly. expecially if you are a dog lover.

I got started on the Outlander Series as an audiobook of the month on ITunes. I was totally hooked from that point on. I have been listening continuously. this is just the best I have ever read. It has everything for me. I highly recommend all the books. but read them in order.
