A gripping series with a strong heroine.

I loved the first book and so was keen to hear the second in the series, it did not disappoint.

Subject matter is at times not exactly enjoyable to listen to but gripping and has you on tenterhooks.

I love the strong female character in this series and I always feel like I'm willing Widow Scarlet on.

Very well written and an excellent narrator.
