Summary

For years, Rafe Fletcher wandered the world, an assassin-for-hire and one of Europe’s most feared swordsmen. It’s a fitting life for a man who once beat his own brutish stepfather half to death, one of many sins for which he hopes to atone upon his return to London. Yet redemption proves elusive when he reunites with Lizzy Croft.

A child when Rafe left, Lizzy remembers her dear friend’s brooding brother all too well. And though dismayed to now find herself drawn to his dark good looks, she hasn’t forgotten how dangerous he can be. She dare not trust him - until the Master of Revels is murdered and Lizzy becomes the prime suspect. Suddenly Rafe is the only man she can trust, the only man who can protect her as they race to unmask the true killer. As her heart begins to thaw to the mysterious rogue, Lizzy wonders if loving him is the greatest risk of all.…

As good as the other hawkesbury books

Found the narrator immensely amusing, well done. I could not help laughing at the swagger and bravado he bought to the narration of the book. Hamming it up or not, it was a thoroughly good romp!

The essence of the book is the same as the other Hawkesbury books and likely would read the same, the narrator of this one completely changed the experience compared to the other two Hawkesbury books which are read by a woman in a more romantic young lady style.

AN 'OK' STORY, NOT A GREAT NARRATOR.

I liked the series, good plots, believable characters but the narrator didn't suit this story. He made the hero sound gruff and not very attractive at all.

Entertaining 3.5 stars

I have enjoyed the whole series. They are easy to listen too but I would not listen to them again. I found this book a bit slow at times and not as steamy as the other books.

Don’t bother listening

This third book in the series was not really a part of the series. It was not as enjoyable as the rest of the series, which I struggled to enjoy anyway. The performance was hard to listen because he often changed the way the character spoke without prompting. Not enjoyable at all. And I’m sad because I do love CJ Archer so much!
