ABSENCE OF MERCY A Lightner and Law Mystery

by | Read by Rupert Degas

Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

This exciting audiobook, set in 1850s New York, follows Lord Jasper Lightner, Crimean War hero and distinguished London Metropolitan Police detective, as he is sent to the U.S. to help form a trained detective force. The moment he arrives in New York City, Jasper is thrust into the middle of violent street thugs and police corruption as he encounters the murdered body of reformer Stephen Finch. This mystery is turned into a thrilling audiobook by the deft handling of narrator Rupert Degas, who shifts into and out of regional accents with ease. Degas utilizes a strong sense of timing to increase the drama and keep listeners on the edge of their seats from start to finish. V.M.G. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
