Dan Calley narrates this historical mystery set in London and Paris in 1769. Henry Hunt and Robert Hooke of the Royal Society and Hooke's niece, Grace, team up once more. Hunt, now an intelligencer for the Royal Ordnance, undertakes several missions. He must find whoever is impersonating the Queen's dwarf, locate a missing diamond, and foil the plot to kill England's Queen Catherine of Bragança. Calley's rapid-fire, fluid, sparingly accented narration encourages listeners to pay attention to every detail. Settings include glamorous Paris and the fens of England as the plot involves a daring escape from the Bastille and a race to save the Queen of England from poison gas. The action never stops.
