Publisher's Summary

After an odd encounter at a grand masquerade ball, Lady Emily becomes embroiled in the murder investigation of one of the guests, a sometime actress trying to pass herself off as the mysterious heiress and world traveler Estella Lamar. Each small discovery, however, leads to more questions. Was the intended victim Miss Lamar or the imposter? And who would want either of them dead?
As Emily and Colin try to make sense of all this, a larger puzzle begins to emerge: No one has actually seen Estella Lamar in years, since her only contact has been through letters and the occasional blurry news photograph. Is she even alive? Emily and Colin's investigation of this double mystery takes them from London to Paris, where, along with their friend Cécile, they must scour the darkest corners of the city in search of the truth.

A great addition to the series

What did you like most about The Counterfeit Heiress?

Jeremy and Cecile - my favourite characters from earlier in the series - are back! Witty dialogue, the Parisian setting, an engaging mystery and a dual-POV storyline made this an enjoyable mystery.

Have you listened to any of Bianca Amato’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is my first by her. At first she seemed a little "posh" to relate to and some of the character voices seemed too similar, even when the characters were a nationality other than English, but I grew to like her fairly quickly and would listen to other books narrated by her.

Any additional comments?

This works well as an addition to the series, but could easily be listened to as a standalone without a listener becoming lost.
