I am completely hooked on the William Monk series so I find it annoying that there are gaps in Audiobooks’ library that make me hunt for physical copies that I need to read until I can get to the next available unabridged audio title. Breach of Promise is my favorite story in the series so far. Halfway through, Anne Perry tips her hand, making it clear who the villain is and it does Not matter that we know so early. The first portion of the story, the trial, is so mysterious, so carefully plotted that I didn’t see the big midway reveal coming. Wonderfully done. The rest of the plot allows us to follow the heroes on their quest to uncover the evidence that will bring some measure of justice to a deeply and shockingly tragic situation. And *finally* Monk figures out his true feelings for Hester — took long enough!! Bonus subplot to an already excellent tale. The first audiobooks in the Monk series that had been available are narrated by the sparkling Davina Porter so I wondered whether a male narrator would be as enjoyable. I was delighted to listen to Terrence Hardiman’s portrayal of both familiar characters, and new ones - he brought a different and wonderful life to them all. Excellent and skillful narrator!
