Publisher's Summary

Agatha Award-winning author Rhys Bowen’s charming combination of intrigue and romance blended with a touch of humor shines when performed by Audible Hall of Fame narrator Katherine Kellgren, whose deft range and impeccable accent work make it hard to believe this isn’t a multicast performance.

In this irresistible cozy set in 1930s London, Rhys Bowen introduces the lively Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie—or "Georgie" for short. Despite standing 34th in line for the throne and occasionally having tea with (…and spying for!) Her Majesty the Queen, Georgie is penniless and down-on-her-luck. And just when it seems things might be looking up, she finds a body in her bathtub.

Listeners are sure to be hooked on this royally enjoyable series—and luckily for them, the collaboration between author and narrator only gets richer over the course of 12 books.

What the critics say

  • Audie Award Nominee - Best Mystery/Suspense Audiobook, 2011

"Rhys Bowen has crafted an insightful blend of old-fashioned whodunnit, clever satire, and drawing room comedy of errors -- and created a feisty new heroine to delight a legion of Anglophile readers." (Jacqueline Winspear, author of the Maisie Dobbs novels)

"Kellgren finds unique voices for quirky characters such as Georgie’s adorable grandfather and estranged mother, Wallis Simpson, and a sexy Irish lord. Kellgren will make listeners want to meet the kilt-clad ghosts who play bagpipes in Scotland’s castle corridors and tartan-wallpapered bathrooms." ( AudioFile)

Not my kind of book

This silly story was made much better by the narration. She did a convincing job of a number of voices with varying English accents. The storyline is simple and not particularly engaging. There is no real tension or complexity but as a bubble gum listen sort of entertaining.

Funny British Mystery

Loved this book. Was looking for something light and quirky, and it was perfect. The performance was wonderful with all the different voices.

My absolute favourite series

I love The characters in this entire series, and the narration by Katherine Kellegren is perfect!
If you’re looking for a fun and engaging cosy mystery series I recommend this one, and the Molly Murphy series as well. #Audible1

Very enjoyable mystery

A refreshing take on a murder mystery, free of many cliches that so many mysteries are plagued with. I look forward to the rest of the series.

terrific narration

The story is a very nice mix of intrigue and humor. The story is brought to life by the exceptional narration. You could hear who was speaking by the tone and accent...over a dozen unique and distinctive accents. This brought the book to life and in a flash, it's over. Very enjoyable.
