Publisher's Summary

February 1816: A race through the icy, twisting cobblestone streets of London ends inside an abandoned church - and a horrific discovery. Bow Street Runner Sam Kelly is called to investigate the grisly murder of Sir Giles Holbrooke, who was left naked and garroted, with his tongue cut out. Yet as perplexing as that crime is, it becomes even stranger when symbols that resemble crosses mysteriously begin to appear across the dead man's flesh during autopsy. Is it a message from the killer? 

Sam turns to the one person in the kingdom who he believes can answer that question and solve the bizarre murder - the Duke of Aldridge's odd but brilliant ward, Kendra Donovan. 

While Kendra has been trying to adapt to her new life in the early 19th century, she is eager to use her skills as a 21st-century FBI agent again. And she will need all her investigative prowess, because Sir Giles was not an average citizen. He was one of England's most clever spymasters, whose life had been filled with intrigue and subterfuge.

Another great Story

I really love these stories - I have read/listened to all 4 now
The story draws you into the era with the same characters you have grown to know in the previous releases
An easy and enjoyable listen and I really hope they continue to be released

this is a series I hang out for

I love these books. I really like that this book draws in our protagonist without any coincidence. the third coincidence was getting a little too much after the last edition, bit this one is nothing like that. there's also less "but you're a woman!" moments. I know this would be realistic for the the, but I didn't really want to read that conversation over and over. so... what's left is a fab time traveling detective story that's entirely enthralling. thanks!!

I'm enjoying the series

I'm enjoying the series. It can be a little over the top on the women's liberation theme, but the overall read is enjoyable.

Narrator has changed pace and great at normal speed

It would appear that the narrator has finally sped up a little and to my surprise, I was able to listen at normal speed and she read superbly, all the characters and voices are still bought to life and the series so far has been brilliant!!

Bravo Julie McElwain, so hope there are many more of these to come!!!
