We meet Woods' redoubtable wife, Betsy in this story and after only hearing about her previously from the point of view of her hulking, but henpecked husband, one would not have expected quote such a delightful character. We also learn more of the beautiful but secretive Spanish widow whom Stephen Lavender has fallen in love with.
Michael Page's narration is, as ever, brilliant. I fell in love with his voice with his narration of the Max Tudor series.
The story holds one's interest, even if there was more than one instance of being able to quests a plot point.
Being a great reader of many a book set during Regency times, I was surprised that the author had women attending a burial. It is my firm understanding that this did not happen during the Regency and indeed, up to and including the Victorian Era.
But regardless, this was a very worthwhile audio experience. I give the overall, 4 1/2 stars.
