Publisher's Summary

When Lady Cordelia, a brilliant mathematician, and her brother, Lord Woodbridge, disappear from London, rumors swirl concerning fraudulent bank loans and a secret consortium engaged in an illicit - and highly profitable - trading scheme that threatens the entire British economy. The incriminating evidence mounts, but for Charlotte and Wrexford, it's a question of loyalty and friendship. And so they begin a new investigation to clear the siblings' names, uncover their whereabouts, and unravel the truth behind the whispers.

As they delve into the murky world of banking and international arbitrage, Charlotte and Wrexford also struggle to navigate their increasingly complex feelings for each other. But the clock is ticking - a cunning mastermind has emerged...along with some unexpected allies - and Charlotte and Wrexford must race to prevent disasters both economic and personal as they are forced into a dangerous match of wits in an attempt to beat the enemy at his own game.

Narration is a mess

Narrator speaks in stattaco style with frequent pauses. Scenes change with no perceptible break. one sentence in one scene is followed without break by another sentence in another scene. Very distracting.

Boring

I wanted light entertainment while doing housework. So I wasn't expecting a epic tale. However, it just became boring and not much of a distraction. The dialogue was tedious with overuse of "dastards" and "gastly". The strangely halting narration was no help. The story line was not interesting. The first few books of this series were OK. Not this one.

Lazy writing makes #4 disappointing.

I have enjoyed the series thus far, but the writing in this book is so lazy that it was a chore to keep listening. Too much telling, not enough showing.

ok

I've followed all of these, and while I think the story is compelling, the narrator, really seemed to drag it out.

Excellent

I love everything about this series: the shadowy mystery, the slow burn attraction of the two main characters, the weasely children and now a ham loving dog. The mix fits together like a well-oiled machine with lots of cogs! I look forward to the next book in the series.

Plod, Plodding, Plodded

I could have skipped all the chapters between four and twenty-nine and not missed anything of relevance.
Suspense level was nil, character development was minimal, and the pacing was stodgy and repetitive.
I had hoped this book would move more briskly than the last two in the series. No: it felt even slower than the others.
The narrator was decent.
I’m certain I can skip the next few books in the series without missing any major developments.

Save you money! Not worth paying a penny for!

Save your money. Boring, hard to follow, total waste of time, nothing to grab your interest.

I have no idea of the story is good. Narration is

The narrator read the major parts of the book in this marching tone that sounds like guy calling the horse races. It is just so hard to listen to because it has no flavor at all. couldn't get through chapter one.

A worthy installment of the series

The author has steadily built on the characters from installment to installment. This is no different. The central characters get themselves embroiled in another murder to solve. This one has a more complicated and intricate plot and I throughly enjoyed it. Narration brings it alive and is well done. If you like the series, you should like this installment.

Murder at Queen's Landing

If you've never read or listened to an Andrea Penrose mystery, you really should!!! To me its like dumping out a 5000 piece puzzle on your table and then putting it all together. Her characters are so detailed and eloquent. There are various, seemingly random, details that come in from all types of characters, how societal expectations influence ideas or events. You learn a lot since each of her books is based on events from history that she expounds on. Definitely recommend you reading or listening to the audio book! James Cameron Stewart does an excellent job narrating the story so you don't want to put it down! 😍
