Amateur sleuths Veronica Speedwell and her colleague, Stoker, come to the aid of the Crown in this audiobook, set in 1888. The pair end up discovering the body of a murdered woman, getting kidnapped, and finding themselves involved in the crimes of Jack the Ripper. Narrator Angele Masters performs this flamboyant story with vividness, effectively slowing down the pacing to create suspense and speeding it up to create excitement. Masters easily convinces listeners that they are hearing the voice of Veronica herself. Though the mystery plot is not as strong as those of other audiobooks in the series, there are plenty of unexpected twists, and Masters's wide-ranging performance adds to the thrills.
