Excellent story

This story of Monk and his team was excellent with a depth of characterisation that was very interesting. The storyline kept me wanting more and I couldn’t put it down. I love her stories of Monk and Hester and crew!

Not what I expect

This may have been an entertaining book, I really have enjoyed the other William Monk books on audible, but I guess we’ll never know because of the narration. The narration is really awful, and to add to it the sound quality is sub par, and I just couldn’t stand listening to it. I tried, but gave up.

Welcome change of style

I always enjoyed the William Monk books, but this one is a cut above the others. Less whimsical "period" background information, a much leaner writing style and a great plot...couldn't stop listening because I just had to find out the ending!
