Publisher's Summary

It’s the Roaring Twenties. London’s bright young things are partying, Soho’s nightlife is buzzing, and Augusta Peel is hiding in her basement.

She has a reason to hide there: it’s home to her Bloomsbury workshop where she repairs old, neglected books. After a busy time during the war, all Augusta wants is peace and quiet—even if it is routinely disturbed by the tube trains beneath her feet.

But events take a turn when Augusta agrees to chaperone nineteen-year-old Harriet Jones on a date. Failing to get her home on time, she ends up in a riotous nightclub. She can’t imagine the evening getting much worse when the police raid it. But then the murder happens.

Who shot Jean Taylor? An old acquaintance at Scotland Yard learns Augusta was near the murder scene and persuades her to help with his investigation. But how can a humble book repairer navigate Soho’s world of actresses, gangsters, and theater impresarios to discover the truth?

A new historical cozy mystery from the author of the Penny Green Victorian mystery series and the Churchill & Pemberley cozy mystery series.

Great Series

I have now listened to the first three books of the series and I am looking forward to number four and beyond. The mysteries are excellent. The author plays fair with the clues. I am eager to learn more about Augusta. The narrator only enhances the stories. Definitely worth the time and the credit.

Let down by dull characterisation

As the set up to a series this failed for me on the grounds that the characters just didn’t make me want to follow. There are repeated references to what the two leads went through in WW1 but there’s so little chemistry that one might imagine they were on entirely different continents at the time. The narrator’s mispronunciation of the name Lennox was the nail in the coffin for me.

Dull. The narrator killed the story

I tried to like this story but the reading was so flat, uninteresting and dull that I failed to find a anchor to enjoy and pull me in. I have thousands of audiobooks now, so I know when I am going to click with a narrator or not, and I don’t with this one. I have listened to the book twice and I can’t tell you what the story was about, I was just switched off by the story telling. This is go on the ‘bookshelf’ and will stay there as there are so many other, more engaging books to listen to.
