- The Midnight Queen

A good enough story, a parcially ficticious glimpse of old England that would have been very interesting if it wasn't for the changing narrators. With one chapter there is the pleasant rounded English narrator followed by the harsh American, who is followed by the heavily accented European, it is very jarring! Also the varying quality of the recordings makes listening frustrating than enjoyable. A pity!
