Summary

Autumn, 1671. War looms with Holland, while discontent grows with England’s dissolute monarch, Charles II. Meanwhile, Betsy Brand, celebrated actress with the Duke’s Theatre, has a predicament. Beset by financial troubles, she is obliged to leave London and undertake a dangerous venture as a spy for her country.
What starts out as a fact-finding mission to the Low Countries soon turns into a deadly game, in which Betsy must use all her acting skills. Though she meets her match in Captain Mullin, a reckless fellow-agent, the two find they must work together to confront an unseen killer and unravel a plot that strikes at the very heart of England.

Distracting.

The story was fine, the narration was fine but I was totally put off by the sounds of swallowing and dry mouth on the recording. Not the narrator's fault, perhaps something about the mix?
