Publisher's Summary

After being blacklisted for having communist sympathies as a student twenty years before, Pulitzer Prize - winning historian Tom Wrought escapes America's Cold War climate to teach at Oxford. There, he falls in love with Liz Spencer, a beautiful married woman. When Liz's husband is pushed in front of a train in the London Underground, Tom is immediately arrested for the murder. Scotland Yard is convinced it has its man, as he had means, motive, and opportunity.

Certain of his innocence, Liz hires a young solicitor, Alice Silverstone, to defend Tom. But they discover that Tom's former secret work as an American spy made him a number of powerful enemies. Russian intelligence, British counterespionage, and even the FBI all may have reason to frame him. If Liz and Alice can find out who is behind the murder, they stand a chance of freeing Tom, but doing so puts all their lives at risk.

    "Performance ruins the story"

    the performance is awful, accent ridiculous . it ruined the book for me I could not listen. I am not British and I recognized this was not a native speaker.

    "Historical intrigue"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, great story, fascinating historical facts interwoven. Narrator dreadful. If the story hadn't been so good, I would have bailed because of her. If narration had been good, book would have been fantastic.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Autumn in Oxford?

    Encounters with historical figures like Bayard Rustin.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Breathy, phony English accent was truly gratingly bad. Speech pattern distracting.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Historical revelations were moving


    Any additional comments?

    Would have been a great physical read
