A great introduction to the series.
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.
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.
