When the local member of Parliament dies under suspicious circumstances in this audiobook set in 1920, Lady Eleanor Swift finds herself with two significant projects. She investigates the possible murder on behalf of the accused cook while, at the same time, running to replace the dead man in Parliament. As Karen Cass performs the audiobook, listeners connect strongly to the story and to the earliest days of women's suffrage in England, when only a small percentage of the female populace could vote. Cass excels at voicing the household staff, in particular the seemingly rigid butler, Clifford. Listeners will hear the twinkle in Clifford's eye as he plays Watson to Lady Eleanor's Holmes.
