Perry's third entry in her Inspector Monk/Hester Latterly series (set in 1850's London) finds the pair investigating the murder of a military hero. His wife has freely confessed, but there's more to this tragedy than surface appearances indicate. Davina Porter's narration employs a variety of accents (of geography, as well as social class) and is as richly textured and complex as Perry's engrossing story. Perry's stories immerse the reader in the period, and Porter enhances this experience through her attention to vocal characterization. Listeners looking for detailed plotting, authentic period detail and superb narration will find it all here. M.A.M. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 96]
