Summary

Abduction. Murder. A conspiracy that could bring down the King.

London, 1667: In the wake of the Great Fire, a new city has emerged from the flames. The King has reopened the capital’s theatres, and the royal court is hell-bent on debauched entertainment. But amid the raucous festivities, an actress shows up dead, dressed in the clothes of a missing girl. 

It’s a time of great change for thief taker Charlie Tuesday too: his old flame, Maria, is on the cusp of marrying someone else. But when she is abducted on the way to her wedding, Charlie realises her disappearance is linked to the murder. 

Meanwhile, as Lent draws to a close, London is exploding into shocking riot. With brothels and theatres being attacked, Charlie and his sidekick Lily must find clues before an angry mob does. And as the mystery deepens and violence fills the streets, can Charlie solve a riddle that threatens not just Maria, but London itself?

Excellent

Highly evocative. Good narration. Waited for this latest book to be released and it was like meeting old friends again.

London in the year 1666

The Thief Taker series with protagonist private cop Charlie Tuesday is the obviously loving work of British female journalist C. S. Quinn. The Changeling Murders is Book 4 in the series. I've become addicted to the series which started out as 5 star novels with each getting even better than the prior. The Great Fire of London of 1666 followed the Great (bubonic) Plague of 1665. These were desperate times in London and Quinn's telling of the story is appropriately raw. Charles II was unfortunate to be the monarch.

This series is not for everyone. British history addicts will like it most. Napoleon Ryan narrated the first two novels in the series and Steve West has narrated the most recent two. Ryan and West sound a lot like each other and both are outstanding.

the changeling murders

Steve West did a brilliant performance. His fantastic storytelling kept me listening. the story was mediocre, but the narrator was extraordinary.

Good book/ Good Series

I am really enjoying this series and can't wait for the next book. Listened to this one too fast and now I must wait for the next one.
