Nefarious deeds are afoot in the latest Lady Charlotte Holmes mystery, beautifully narrated by Kate Reading. In this case, Inspector Treadles has been caught holding a revolver in a room with two men who were shot dead. Both men worked for the company recently inherited by Treadles's wife. Surely, Lady Charlotte's collaborator isn't guilty of murder? Reading is in fine voice, offering a mellow, warm, and amused performance to match the wry wit and voluptuousness of the writing. Voluptuous because Miss Holmes likes sweets and her colleague Lord Ingram as much as she likes detecting. Trust, though, that detecting abounds most satisfyingly, as do characters, all of whom Reading personifies, from a squeaky widow to Lord Ingram--with his baritone bedroom murmur.
