Summary

London, 1816

Cavalry captain Gabriel Lacey returns to Regency London from the Napoleonic wars, burned out, fighting melancholia, his career ended. His interest is piqued when he learns of a missing girl, possibly kidnapped by a prominent member of Parliament. Lacey's search for the girl leads to the discovery of murder, corruption, and dealings with a leader of the underworld. At the same time, he struggles with his own disorientation transitioning from a soldier's life to the civilian world, redefining his role with his former commanding officer, and making new friends--from the top of society to the street girls of Covent Garden.

Book 1 of the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries. This is a full-length novel.

Better than I expected

Audible has been shoving these books onto my recommendations for a while now and the covers alone made me avoid like the plague. I thought they were romances but they are surprisingly gritty. Yes, the characters are a little black and white but I would certainly give more in the series a go.

Excellent Narrator

Easy and enjoyable listen, not badly written but an excellent narrator who makes the most of the text in front of him. Each character is easy to spot from the tone, accents and dialects used by the narrator...

GETTING TO KNOW YOU

This is the first of a series of Captain Lacey mysteries so we have the back story as well as the mysteries to be solved. The story is a little slow, but is well told and interesting enough to make me want to know what happens next and "who dunnit".

I think that despite my hesitation I will buy the next book as the characters have been established and I am interested enough to want to know how they will be developed in the next book.
