Earphones Award Winner

Romantic Fiction • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Jane Austen meets Anaïs Nin in this erotic murder mystery set in nineteenth- century England. A country house party brings upper-crust acquaintances together for several days of social intrigue, in which the subtlest of nuances receives detailed attention. The murder of an indiscreet mistress only adds to the complexities of the dance. Simon Prebble brings the ideal mix of mastery and vulnerability to his performance. His refined British Broadcasting voice takes command of the story, yet leaves the listener nearly swooning during the many intimate moments. His characters, though easily differentiated, are never over-performed, and his narrative passages sound ever so perfectly proper. In this role, Prebble claims the unofficial title of audio heartthrob. R.L.L. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2005 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
