It is the 1890s, and she has just received a letter from one of her parents' dearest friends, a certain detective who lives on Baker Street, who needs her help on a most bizarre case. As she embarks through the supernatural side of London, venturing into the forbidden realms bordering Victorian society, she is occupanied by a dashing but infuriating Lord Darthmoor.

Aargh. Badly miscast.
People who aren't British.
The narration was really irritating. Why chose an Australian voice artist for a story set in Victorian England? I can't listen longer than three minutes.
Some one who could approximate an English accent. Someone who takes advice on how to pronounce Flinders Petrie.
Didn't get far enough into the book to form an opinion.
I wish I could get past the voice artist. It sounds like the kind of book I would love to listen to.
