Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Perry paints her Victorian characters, Hester and William Monk, with wide strokes that are further enhanced by this fine reading. The complex story of an international cast of resistance fighters, the murky art world, and a growing list of murder suspects is kept on track by David Colacci's fine narration. He never falters, giving each character a sympathetic and realistic depiction; of particular note is the palpable animosity between Monk and his partner. Their mixed emotions come through every time they encounter each other. A fascinating portrait of gambling addiction also adds intrigue to the story. Listeners are held spellbound until the dénouement. Mystery fans, as well as historical fiction and English history buffs, will enjoy an intimate glimpse of this bygone era. S.G.B.
