Summary

November 1147. Gareth and Gwen have again been called to a castle belonging to Robert, Earl of Gloucester, this time by Prince Henry, who insists his uncle was murdered. Allying with Normans doesn’t come easily to Gareth and Gwen, but initial doubts are swept aside as more losses come to light. Because Robert's death has upended the balance of power in England, friends and foes alike have a vested interest in keeping the truth from coming out, and it is up to Gareth and Gwen to stop the killer before he claims another victim - and maybe a country.

The Favored Son is the 10th Gareth & Gwen Medieval Mystery.

Narration

The final syllable in every sentence was drawn out and breathy so that sentences ending in S sounded like a snake hiss. Extremely off putting.

Another great Mystery in the series

I really enjoy this series. And the narrator is great. I don't want to give the plot away but this is a great stand alone if you haven't read the other books in this series. I really love the blend of history, told with accuracy, and the fiction of a good mystery. Highly recommend.

Very well done

Story line was very clear. Compellingly fast moving and the Reader had good vocal dexterity truly a very good Novel . Hope the rest of the Series is as good.
