Mystery & Suspense • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrator Anna Bentinck delivers Saunders's whodunit, which takes place in Victorian England. We are immediately introduced to the comely widow Laetitia Rodd; under the guise of a gentlewoman, she's a smart investigator who is stoic in the face of murder and can detect a lie at 10 paces. Bentinck's lithe voice emoting sadness, delight, horror, and grace in males and females young and old prepares us for the twists and turns that ensue. Bentinck's well-done Yorkshire, Cockney, and aristocratic voices convey the rigid social stratification and mores of the period. This first installment in the Laetitia Rodd series leaves the listener eager for the Victorian sleuth's next case. E.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2016]
