Publisher's Summary

When the dashing Jack Carstares is unfairly accused of cheating at cards, he leaves the country in disgrace. Returning some years later disguised as a highwayman, his reappearance heralds a dramatic chain of events that includes a Duke, a damsel, a duel, and not one, but two kidnappings. Written when she was just 17, The Black Moth was Heyer’s first novel, but it bears many of the hallmarks of her later romances, being vivid, witty, and peppered with historical insight.

Simply wonderful

This is one of the earliest Heyer novels, but it is simply one of the best. Fun, exciting, witty with enough villainy thrown in to keep up the suspense. Julian Rhind-Tutt reads this novel with charm, finesse and his interpretation of the characters give it real dimension. His delivery of Tracy, Jack and Miles is super. And I am already back at the beginning for listen 2. I particularly liked his villain! Great book, great fun, and laugh out loud. What more could you ask for?

Bewitching "Black Moth".

This early work by Heyer contains, 'in nuce' the essence of all her historical novels. Julian Rhind-Tutt's reading is masterful. A pity nobody told him how to pronounce O'Hara's recurring "asthore"... I was anguished with the "ee"that replaced the "o" every time it cropped up. A small blemish on a wonderfully paced and well-interpreted performance.
DOES AUDIBILE INTEND RECORDING ANY MORE OF HEYER'S BOOKS? Please do! UNABRIDGED!!!!
