Publisher's Summary

August 1811. George, Prince of Wales, has his own reasons for welcoming time-traveller Tam Eildor to the Royal Pavilion. His latest mistress, Sarah, Marchioness of Creeve, has been murdered in his bed, strangled with her own string of pearls and the newly-created Prince Regent realises that a sordid scandal must be avoided at all costs. In an assumed role of a Scottish lawyer, sole survivor of a shipwreck off the Brighton coast, Tam must find the killer and thief who has also made off with the historic Stuart Sapphire. When Tam's life is threatened in a prearranged carriage accident he finds himself coping with a double investigation - but this is the least of his worries.

    Story
    "Hanging participles, past and present..."
    Would you try another book written by Alanna Knight or narrated by Joe Dunlop?

    No. The reader is ponderous and not very intelligent. The author has a startling ungrammatical mannerism (see review headline), which is a constant irritation. Don't literary editors pick up on such things any more?


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He reads too slowly and sounds under-prepared. Several mispronunciations.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes. It was set in Brighton, which is why I wanted to read it. I love the place.


    Any additional comments?

    People who don't mind clumsy prose would certainly find the plot sufficiently gripping.
