Publisher's Summary

Former FBI agent Kendra Donovan's attempts to return to the 21st century have failed, leaving her stuck at Aldridge Castle in 1815. And her problems have just begun: in London, the Duke of Aldridge's nephew Alec - Kendra's confidante and lover - has come under suspicion for murdering his former mistress, Lady Dover, who was found viciously stabbed with a stiletto, her face carved up in a bizarre and brutal way.

Lady Dover had plenty of secrets, and her past wasn't quite what she'd made it out to be. Nor is it entirely in the past - which becomes frighteningly clear when a crime lord emerges from London's seamy underbelly to threaten Alec. Joining forces with Bow Street Runner Sam Kelly, Kendra must navigate the treacherous 19th century while she picks through the strands of Lady Dover's life. As the noose tightens around Alec's neck, Kendra will do anything to save him, including following every twist and turn through London's glittering ballrooms, where deception is the norm-and any attempt to uncover the truth will get someone killed.

    "Great job Julie!"

    I just finished both audio books and loved them both!!! I'm proud to say I went to school with the author Julie and W0W, what a success Julie had become! I always knew she was a great talent in art but she definitely has the writing down too! The books were great, can't wait for the next one! Jill N👍👍👍👍👍

    "Good story - hard to listen to"

    The cadence of the reader is uneven. It's loud and piercing and one minute and low and quiet the next. It's very hard to listen to with headphones as you are constantly adjusting the volume to either hear the low voices or keep you ear drums from splitting at the high annoying parts.

    The story is a fun and interesting tale and I enjoyed it very much!

    "Lovely story but the narration....(not so good)"

    I really enjoyed this book, The story is nicely paced and the concept alluring BUT...and that is a very big but, the narration is perfect when it comes to female voices and horribly grating when it comes to male. I takes a lot away from the book. In the end, it is still worth a listen, but be forwarned!

    "Good story, awful narration!"

    I loved the story as I did the first one in the series, A Muder in Time, but if the same narrator does the next book in the series, if there is one, I will not be purchasing the Audible version. I will give the kindle book five stars, but two stars is kind for the Audible version. The narrator reads the book so slowly that I had to increase the speed to 1.25x, which helped a little, but not much. Sorry, Lucy Raynor, but your narrating is just not my cup of tea.
