Publisher's Summary

The murder of a man on London Bridge is the first indication that the Earl of Clarendon's fears of a rebellion may be well-founded. His spy, Thomas Chaloner, suspects the assassin may be a member of a group dedicated to seeing the return of Puritanism, and at the same time he learns of a faction determined to bring back the Catholic Church. As he moves unobtrusively between White Hall, the Strand and the heaving congestion on the Bridge, he becomes aware of an undercurrent of restlessness in the capital.

And it soon becomes clear that the groups he is investigating are planning some extraordinary climax to achieve their separate aims on Shrove Tuesday, which gives him very little time to thwart their intentions…

    "A good theme....."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better narrator.


    What was most disappointing about Susanna Gregory’s story?

    The narration.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    By not giving the right emphasis on paragraphs


    What character would you cut from A Murder on London Bridge?

    There were far too many characters and a number could have been cut.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the idea of the old London Bridge with the houses on it being the site of a murder..... and I was looking forward to much more historical detail and was very disappointed. I did not get a feel for the characters and did not really care what happened and gave up towards the end.

    "Atmospheric narrative with good narrator"

    Unlike Susanna Gregory's other series staring Matthew Bartholomew, the Thomas Chaloner 's books took me a while to get into as the main character is not an easy person to like, tending to be taciturn, remote and aloof, but, after all, Chaloner is a spy not a monk and a physician as in Gregory's other series.

    The narration is good, with Gordon Griffin successfully managing an array of different accents and both female and male voices. The plot is solid, with good historic details and enough atmosphere for you to picture the scenes, smell the - often noxious - odours and understand that we are reading about a time that although is not that dissimilar from our own, is nevertheless different.

    Not a five star review though as the plot is not one of the best in this long series but certainly worth a listen if you are working your way through all the books and it has stood up to repeated listens.
