Publisher's Summary

In 1816 London, Kendra Donovan tries to track down a missing man but also finds trouble brewing closer to home in the fifth book in Julie McElwain's riveting time-travel mystery series.

When Kendra Donovan is approached by Mrs. Gavenston with an unusual request - to find her business manager, Jeremy Pascoe, who recently vanished - the FBI agent is eager to accept the challenge. To Kendra's way of thinking, spending her time locating a missing person suits her more than perfecting her embroidery, painting watercolors, practicing on the pianoforte, or any of the other activities that are socially acceptable for young ladies in the early 19th century. Unfortunately, the missing person's case turns into a murder investigation after Kendra finds the man stabbed to death in a remote cottage that he'd been using as a writer's retreat. Everyone who knew him says that Pascoe was a fine fellow. So who hated him enough to kill him?

Seeking the answer to that question plunges Kendra into the world of big business, as Mrs. Gavenston happens to run one of the largest breweries in England. And if there is one thing Kendra knows hasn't changed, it's that big business means big money...and money is always a motive for murder.

Love the series

I have come to love Kendra & Alex and hope there’s going to be more of her adventures. The only thing in the audio that drove me crazy was when the reader paused before every “Kendra Said”, “Carlotta Said”, “Alex Said. “.

Best book of the series

If your an Outlander fan, you’ll love these novels. Extremely well written, edited, and read, this last book in the series (?) presents two compelling mystery story lines that sustain the excitement and adventure throughout. The reader is over-the-top great!

Fabulously Storyline

I love the characters in these stories. I love the history she weaves in through the plots. Miss Donovan's trying to understand the way things are in early England when when she comes from the 21st century.
I'm hoping for more stories to come out in the near future.

Great story

I still can't stand the narrator, but the story is grasping as always. If it weren't an audio, it would have been a real page turner.

Absolutely fantastic!!!

I think this book was absolutely brilliant and kept me gripped from beginning to end! I even stayed up until 4am to finish it!! There are actually two mystery’s in this book that are beautifully entwined together, neither distracting from the other, but just keeping every chapter highly addictive!!
Please don’t stop writing these if book five can be the best yet, imagine what book 10 could be like!!!
This time narration was best played at 1.1 speed and as always every character was brilliantly read.
Bravo!!!!!! To both author and narrator
