Narrator Alison Larkin's bright voice makes listening to this second book in the Mary Bennet series lots of fun. In Book 1, Mary, the middle and least accomplished daughter of the Bennets' five girls in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, comes into her own. Now in Book 2, Mary is hired as an undercover agent for the British government to investigate a murder. Larkin inhabits Mary's newfound sense of self as she works with other spies to solve the mystery, doing her best to avoid discovery. Larkin's portrayals of Mary's cohort, Fanny, and sisters, Kitty and Elizabeth, are spot-on, while her male characters are pleasantly believable. Larkin delivers the diction and attitudes of the early nineteenth century to perfection. Fans can look forward to Book 3, due this fall.
