Publisher's Summary

Winter's Pearl - Prologue to the Guy Winter Mysteries Series is a novella which sets the scene for the first full length Guy Winter mystery, entitled Winter's War.
Winter's Pearl is set in London in the first months of the Second World War during the period of the so-called 'Phoney War'.
It draws us into the complex world of Scotland Yard's most famous detective Guy Winter; the Mystery Man. So named because no other living detective has ever solved as many mysteries as Winter of the Yard. However, the great detective's fame and triumphs have come at a high cost.
Just when we think we've discovered our hero at his all-time low, it gets worse and it doesn't ever look like it is going to get better. Who needs enemies when your friends are on somebody else's side?

Good introduction

This is the prologue by James Philip, the author, and it sets the basis for us to understand Guy Winter and his life and the people he lived and worked with and who helped make him the person and great investigator that he was in this series.
It is well written and reads easily, giving the facts and descriptions necessary to whet my appetite and make me want more.
I listened to the audiobook version and have nothing but praise for the narrator, Melanie Fraser whose use of her very versatile voice helped make this an interesting and entertaining listen.
I received a free audiobook from the Narrator, and this is my unbiased review.

A great introduction to the series.

What about Melanie Fraser’s performance did you like?

I thought that Melanie Fraser's accent reflected the time period of the story very well and her voice really suited the elevated status of the characters and the establishment they were working for.

Any additional comments?

For a short story there were a lot of characters to keep track of and I had to pay good attention to what their role was and their relationship to each other. However I enjoyed the story a lot. I really love mysteries and I thought that this was a great introduction to the main character, Guy Winters, and left me wanting to read the next books in the series.I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
