Publisher's Summary

January 1910. A journalist has been killed in a suspicious blaze. Everything points to a group of suffragettes, but the apparent culprit insists she is innocent.

When Lady Hardcastle receives a letter from a suffragette requesting her urgent help, the retired spy turned sleuth knows only she stands between an accused young woman and the gallows. Evidence at the scene makes Lizzie Worrel’s innocence difficult to believe, and with the police treating it as an open-and-shut case of arson, Lady Hardcastle faces a barrage of resistance as she tries to dig out the truth.

With her trusted maid and confidante, the formidable Flo, Lady Hardcastle sets off in pursuit of the truth as time runs out for the accused suffragette. Was she set up? And if so, is the real culprit a traitor to the cause - or part of a darker conspiracy?

Love

The Lady Hardcastle Mysteries have become my absolute favorite! The Narration is perfect and the characters and storylines are just wonderful. T E Kinsey has such a talent for creating characters that are so believable, likable and witty, I often find myself forgetting they are in fact fictional. Please keep the books coming, I wait with excitement for the next installment!

Another Winner

I listen to these stories over and over again. I really enjoy EK's beautiful voice. And she does an OUTSTANDING job of making all the characters come to life.

Utterly marvelous!!

I have not enjoyed an audio book this much in years. The reader is extraordinary. She brought Lady Hardcastle and her tiny servant, Flo, to vivid life with perfect voices for each of them. All the other characters we have grown to love had wonderful characterizations too. I have never heard anyone else do so many voices and accents. I am going to get all the others even though I have already read them. Miss Knowlton makes them come alive.

Delightfully Entertaining and Intriguing

Love the banter between Lady H and Armstrong, so much better than last book. Story was full of fun, adventure, mystery and over all a real treat. Didn't want to put it down.

Capital!

While I have quite enjoyed all the Lady Hardcastle Mysteries to date, The Burning Issue of the Day is my favorite. It had a more elaborate plot, more facets, and made me laugh even more than the others. It seems that Elizabeth Knowelden, too, gave her best performance yet. All around delightful, and a great choice for a vacation listen.

So much fun!

The series is so perfectly delightful and I love the bounce it gives me. The characters are superb and the narrative is as much a part of it as they are. Wish I could listen to one of these books everyday!
