Publisher's Summary

Lady Cecelia is to mysteries what a pack of foxhounds is to a fox...and her interference brings her to disaster. But Captain Serrano isn't about to let her employer - and now her friend - be destroyed. With the help of Lady Cecelia's nephew and his friends, including Lord Thornbuckle's adventurous daughter, Heris plots a rescue, while trying to rebalance her own life and recover relationships with some of her former crew. In the process, she and Lady Cecelia bring down a government.

Excellent book

Excellent book and story. Narration is good but some of the sound effects made it hard to hear in certain areas. Also not being able to skip the adds for other books midway through and at the beginning was annoying.

Engrossing Listen

I loved reading this series when it came out, and am loving listening to it now. Highly recommend.

I took off one star for the performance because the "sound effects" can be both intrusive and annoying. I started listening while driving my car, and more than once I thought the ambient noise from my audio was a problem with my car.

Good story

The dramatisation js good, too. The background music can be a bit loud in places if you have hearing problems, though.
I can't aay that I'm a fan of the advertising between parts one and two, however. I paid for this book - leave the advertising out or at least leave it to the end, it really damages the feel of the story.
