British narrator Karen Cass vividly narrates this captivating audiobook. She realistically delivers the upper-class English accents and Irish brogues of those featured in this true account of a 1970s aristocrat turned revolutionary. In an engaging style and intelligent tone, Cass recounts how wealthy Rose Dugdale, a conservative debutante who attends Oxford and gains a PhD in economics, transforms into a radical supporter of the IRA. Not only does she become a political revolutionary, she also masterminds a world-class art theft--one of the largest ever--from Russborough House, an Irish estate. The crime is made more striking by the loss of an almost priceless Vermeer. Dugdale spent six years in prison, had a child in the penitentiary, and, still a radical, went on to live in Dublin.
