The Sebastian St Cyr mysteries are a wonderful series of books... with twists, turns, depravity & romance.
Davina Porter is a marvel.... she is genius at voices and accents.
I can’t wait to start the next book 📖

The Sebastian St Cyr series has been a delight to listen to. Wonderfully written with love,intrigue,mystery & twists. The violence needed for a murder mysteries is not graphic or over done for shock. It’s just well written & very well narrated... I highly recommend this book #audible1

Diana Gabaldon is an absolute master at story telling... she takes you there with her vivid description of sights, sounds, smells. The entire Outlander series is my absolute favourite... I listen yo them over and over. Davina Porter is a genius at narrative. I highly recommend this series #audible1

Masterfully narrated! I looked into this series simply because Davina Porter was the narrator...she is superb at accents & pulls you directly into the story with her. I was extremely happy to find out that as well as the narrative the books are fantastic historical mysteries! Twists, turns, love interests ... it’s got it all! If you loved the a Outlander series then try the Sebastian St Cyr series

A very cute story. I liked it because it wasn’t to cheesy or predictable as these type of books usually are. Imaginative and well written ... read the series.

A few of the ideas in this book are a little reminiscent of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander , which was definitely written first. It’s a cute light read though.

Brighton, England, 1811. The beautiful wife of an aging Marquis is found dead in the arms of the Prince Regent. Draped around her neck lies an ancient necklace with mythic origins--and mysterious ties to Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin. Haunted by his past, Sebastian investigates both the Marchioness's death and his own possible connection to it--and discovers a complex pattern of lies and subterfuge. With the aid of his lover, Kat Boleyn, and a former street urchin now under his protection, Sebastian edges closer to the killer. And when one murder follows another, he confronts a conspiracy that threatens his own identity...and imperils the monarchy itself.
Another superb performance by Davina Porter, she is masterful with accents & in my opinion the best narrator in the business.
