Publisher's Summary

The first Sebastian Foxley medieval mystery by Toni Mount.

The narrow, stinking streets of medieval London can sometimes be a dark place. Burglary, arson, kidnapping, and murder are everyday events. The streets even echo with rumors of the mysterious art of alchemy being used to make gold for the king.

Join Seb, a talented but crippled artist, as he is drawn into a web of lies to save his handsome brother from the hangman's rope. Will he find an inner strength in these, the darkest of times, or will events outside his control overwhelm him?

Only one thing is certain - if Seb can't save his brother, nobody can.

Awful narration

The story is very good, and a nice change from the many Tudor novels I have listened to, but this narrator was just awful, IMO.
His female voices could crack glass, and I winced each time he had to speak their voices.
He was also very hesitant and his pace was uneven and irregular.
Still, I might purchase another novel by this author- I really liked the characters.

Enjoyed it very much. A good story, I enjoyed the narrators ability to convey humor in subtle text.

A Good Listen

I found the story interesting. On the whole believable although there was one part that I found to be a bit far fetched. There was good characterisation. The narration was fine although at times seemed rushed (the narrator appeared to be hurrying to get to the end of a sentence before he ran out of breath, and failing) resulting in pauses and breaths taken in the wrong places. I did however enjoy this book and would listen to more from this author.
