Heather Wilds delivers an intense narration that never slows down. Emmeline St. Germaine, in the guise of the "Avengeress," sneaks through nighttime London of 1810 to rescue a 13-year-old scullery maid from being raped at knifepoint by her master, Sir Henry Claybourne. The next morning Emmeline awakens to the news that Sir Henry has been murdered--with the Avengeress as the chief suspect. Wilds deftly navigates the unique voices and accents of people from many regions of England and stations in society as Emmeline questions those of all backgrounds in her search for the murderer and those behind an organized pedophile ring. The story is gripping, and with Wilds's performance, the audiobook becomes all the more exciting. V.M.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
