Who murdered Lisa Rainer? Is it her former lover who went to seek fortune in Africa and fell in love with another on the way back? Were there any blood motives? Detective John Thorne would have to discover. Inspired by a true story, this novel is a page turner. Yet this is not only a detective novel. It deals with class, gender, propriety and family. - Summary by Stav Nisser (10 hr 31 min)

Reviews

Unique

(5 stars)

This book was quite unlike any other I have “read.” Part social commentary, part love story, and part moral play. Can evil men do good? Why do good men do evil? What does one individual owe society? What cost truth? Ah! Questions ever debated!

Characters a plenty

(3 stars)

she introduced too many characters too late to almost make the storyline incomprehensible. it was a struggle to finish listening... I'm not sure it would have been more enjoyable if I had actually read it or not... Even though I enjoyed all the readers who sounded very clear explanation point

(2.5 stars)

I agree with okiekid, I restarted book so many times and still couldn't keep up, but thank you readers!

very good though predictable tale

(5 stars)

The narrators are excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed this book
