The character development comes out more as the series progresses. There are 2 or 3 other books Audible is not offering. So there is a large bit missing in the series. The stories are good enough for them to sort of knit together anyway.
Degas narrates the book and animates the characters in good form.
The writing style presents a quaint setting for events . In some ways it is a kind of old fashioned serial for adults, Paul Temple style, in a book. Not exactly and really 'a bit like', as there is a look at very important issues of the day
In this story there is mysterious murder, eccentric artists, a beautiful young .woman and a handsome rich young man. There is a kindly old lady,a former world prophet, clergy and a woman in distress. Shipboard in Staterooms, fine dining and dancing link the wealthy, famous and infamous.This is a setting for meeting new friends and enemies and murder.
Back home and on land the intrigues progress.
