(4.3 stars; 88 reviews)

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)

(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!

Very good read

(5 stars)

Interesting, rather a lot of characters to keep track of but they all have their place in the story. The narrators did an excellent job except for chapters 17 and 18, this reader sounds like a child learning to read, no expression, no emotion. I love that this writer always finishes her books well so I have no questions about what happened to any of the characters

(5 stars)

A surprisingly good read! I started not too enthusiastically but was pleasantly surprised because, I think, of the rich character development. I don't want to say more and spoil the ending. Most readers were very good, though I could do without Mr. Lock: I've heard him in other works and find that his pitch and cadence are just too strange.

Holy Crap! I was so into this book that I actually looked up the murder it was based on to see who did it. Unsolved of course. You can tell the writer was a devotee of Wilkie Collins. I even had to listen to the last chapter twice just to absorb the full effect.

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

(5 stars)
