Publisher's Summary

Captain Lacey stops to assist a young woman in the market at Covent Garden, and realizes to his astonishment that she is his daughter, Gabriella. Lacey then discovers that his estranged wife and her paramour, a French officer, have journeyed to London at the invitation of James Denis to dissolve her marriage to Captain Lacey.

Meanwhile, a Bow Street Runner and a man from the Thames River Police have asked Lacey to help them look into the disappearances of "game girls" from Covent Garden. The magistrates aren't interested in their fate, but perhaps Lacey can learn a thing or two. Lacey agrees and recruits old friends to help.

But when the goings-on in Covent Garden put his daughter in grave danger, Lacey's crusade turns personal. He will do anything, and call in any favor from anyone, in order to protect his own Gabriella.

    "A Perfect Mystery Series."

    I read this years ago and was so happy that they have been produced in audio. I simple love this series and have loved listening to them. Enjoying them anew.

    The cast of characters are all so dear to me, and Lacey is such an great protagonist. He's flawed and stubborn and honorable, but you like him for it. It's a great world to lose yourself in. From high society to low, you are always on that journey with the characters.

    A great mystery series, and I can't help but think it would make a great TV show.

    James Gillies does a wonderful job as narrator.

    "Don't miss this series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! In fact, I have gotten several friends hooked on this series already.


    Have you listened to any of James Gillies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I love all of his books. I have listened to him read all of the Captain Lacey series, but I have also listened to several of his other books as well. James Gillies is a terrific narrator. He is very talented at creating distinctive voices for each of the characters and he truly brings the story to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Ashley Gardner does a great job keeping this series engaging and fresh. She ups the drama in this story by involving Lacey's family and his backstory becomes a central part of the plot. If you are new to this series, definitely listen to them in order, as it will enhance your understanding tremendously to experience the characters' growth from book to book.
