Anyone who knows Stella Rileys' series of books either the Roundhead and Cavalier series or Rockliffe will not be surprised by the quality of this writer. The Brandon name will be well known to those who read with great pleasure Garland of Straw and it is wonderful to catch up on the family albeit two generations forward! We know Max from the of the Rockliffe books 'A Trick of Fate' as Arabellas' brother, in this we hear his story. Combine great writing, excellent research and the divine dulcet tones of Alex Wyndham and its a match made in heaven. I encourage everyone to listen to all her audiobooks, They are all keepers

Having waited for the next exciting adventure from Elly Griffiths, the Lantern Men does not disappoint. What a fabulous cast of characters and tight plot. This series needs to be savored like good red wine, sipped slowly and thoroughly enjoyed. Well done!

My first outing with this author and narrator. Neither disappointed. I highly recommend for a rainy winters day.

I highly recommend you listen to this book. The narrator does full justice to this tale. However I agree with former comments regarding the American words used as they jar a little considering the book is set in London and Istanbul.

The story of Ann Elliot and Captain Wentworth is so familiar to all Austen lovers. This book with narration by the wonderful Juliet Stevenson provides an entirely new nuance to this beloved story. I highly recommend this audiobook

As usual Jackson comes up with the goods, this fourth book in the Nathan Cody series does not disappoint. If anything this further instalment is darker and more complex than before. Highly recommended

This is a fascinating history of 19th century news coverage. I hope Simon Beaufort continues Lonsdales adventures. As a murder mystery you won't be disappointed, it is an exciting roller coaster ride, the narrator is perfect.

Jackson excels himself in this, the third Cody book. His use of perspective, both sides of the coin is exceptional. I have never read a crime novel which gives such insight into the mind of a killer and their reasons. Cannot wait for the next instalment of Cody.
