Mystery & Suspense • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

In a clipped British accent, Henrietta Meir performs this complex mystery set in Regency London. Newly widowed Lily Adler's aristocratic tones reflect her keen observational skills as she and her husband's friend, Navy captain Jack Hartley, along with West Indies heiress Miss Ofelia Oswald, investigate a death in the garden. While Meir adopts a commanding accent for Hartley, perfect for a Navy captain used to giving orders, and she provides accents for characters' social stations, she rarely differentiates Mrs. Adler from the West Indian Miss Oswald, creating confusion during their extended conversation. As the trio dig into clues and discover more dead bodies, the mystery twists through the ranks of the upper classes. Meir's narration drives the mystery forward.
