Then the body of his former brother-in-law is found in the Thames, and Chaloner discovers enigmatic clues pointing to a motivation for his murder. These may be linked to a plot to steal the crown jewels, or perhaps to a conspiracy to ensure that no peace is secured between the two nations. Whichever it proves to be, Chaloner knows he has very little time to decipher the clues.

Right from the beginning you are draw into the era the book is set. And starts to pull you into is many webs. It seems that you are physically in London at the time that this is going on. An excellent storyline well written.

Excellent plot, well read, worth an audible credit
The Body in the Thames delivers a constant and evocative narrative full of atmospheric historical details from buildings to the importance of dress, manners and social standing to the lies and deceptions of governments.
The Body in the Thames is an excellent read and listen and I gave it five stars without hesitation. Griffin excels himself this time in his range of Anglo Dutch accents, which to my untutored ear all sound plausible and in giving the the cast, of which there are many, individual voices which helps to keep track of them all.
Without all the historical detail this would still be an excellent murder mystery - with it it is a delight to hear.
