Tobias March and Lavinia Lake team up again to solve the mystery of the "Memento Mori Man," who seems to be killing bridegrooms and somehow involves Aspasia Gray. (All of these are characters from earlier Quick mysteries.) As March and Lake uncover clues, they become embroiled in yet more intrigue within the upper classes of British society. Jennifer Van Dyck brings the society of Victorian Britain to life with her lilting tones and wonderful characterizations. While the abridgment cuts some of the plot, it loses none of the tension between killer and seekers, and between the leading characters. Van Dyck's narration adds spice to the mystery. M.B.K.
