Publisher's Summary

Bow Street Runner John Pickett and Julia, Lady Fieldhurst, seem to have reached an impasse as they wait for the annulment of their accidental marriage to come before the ecclesiastical court.
In the meantime, Pickett is summoned to investigate the theft of almost 200 pounds from a linen-draper's shop - but finds no sign that either the shop or the safe where the money was kept had been forced open. Given the lack of evidence, he can only assume the money was taken by someone inside.
With a host of suspects and a hostile hound named Brutus impeding his progress, Pickett must resort to the tricks of his former trade in order to catch a thief in the act.

Great Addition to the Series!

I so enjoy this series! The characters of John Pickett and Lady Fieldhurst are such endearing characters. Joel Froomkin does such an outstanding performance with this series. I love his accents and various voices for the characters. He puts the right emotions into the story. Sheri Cobb South is able to write vivid imagery, that one can envision the various scenes. Although this book is a novella, it is so worth listening to. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series. This story is both a standalone listen and a continuation of the series. I liked the fact that I wasn't certain who the thief was until it was revealed. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.

A Short John Pickett Mystery.

In this book we don't see a lot of Lady Fieldhurst and there is a mystery for John to solve. We get a little insight in John's history and what he does during this time of the year. I felt really sorry for him in this book because I saw how lonely he was and in some way he envied his mentor, (who he spent Christmas with), for his family. This is something he wants and has doubts of getting.
