Depressing tale, unsatisfying conclusion

While I love this series, this installment was a disappointment. There is no humor. The story line is very dark. While all this may be historically accurate, it is not why I turn to historical mysteries. I want to escape from the difficult times we all now face in the world. So my point of view is somewhat colored by living through the very dark days we face in the present moment. Mel Starr usually provides that antidote but did not this time. One major story thread is never wrapped up which is always frustrating. And the narrator throughout is constantly preaching religiosity when clearly there is no one out there listening given the misery of the lives of the people in this time in history.

This was the final book.

I have purchased all six books up to now. I have listened to all six. In essence the books are all very well written. Historically very interesting. Narrated extremely well by Steven Crossley. The plots were always rather weak though.

I actually purchased Book number 7 but returned it and got a refund after the second chapter. The new narrator was far too monotone for my liking. It was extremely confusing as to who was saying what and when.

Not a grabber.

I do enjoy these books but they don’t grab my attention. I wonder if the narration is part of the problem. It’s very ponderous and one note and makes the main character sound dull; a real problem when the books are told from his POV.
