A Hard Story to Set Aside

I discovered Ellis Peters through the Cadfael series and enjoyed those books so much I thought I'd give Inspector Felse a try. I was not disappointed. I started listening to this while doing needlework, but I got so interested in the plot, I had to set my handwork aside so I could devote my full attention to the story. With all the twists and turns, it held my attention to the very end. This is one of those stories I will listen to again in the future and I will certainly buy more of Peters' work.
Simon Prebble has been on my list of favorite narrators for a long time. His work here is excellent.
