I loved this story. Liss is very good at creating vivid characters and settings and it was very enjoyable to spend time in the seedy streets of 18th century London and in the corrupt world of the East India Company.

The audiobook narration by Mr. Golden Voice, Simon Vance, was perfect, as always.

David Liss, as usual, manages to create a really interesting and believable story from seemingly dull subject matter. The characters make it even better, as they are very well made and believable.
The audiobook was well read.
