But despite the festive season and the beautiful surroundings, this is not a happy occasion; he is going to comfort the family following the death of his friend, the master of the house.

Disappointing

I have read a lot of Anne Perry books and I've enjoyed most of them, but I was disappointed by this book. The story was unsatisfactory, too much character and not much plot. The ending was ridiculous, it was so contrived that it was totally unbelievable.
Terrence Hardiman is a good narrator and the story was well read.
