#AudiobookReview – Daughters of Night by Laura Shepherd-Robinson #DaughtersofNight #NetGalley #ARC #LoveAudio #Histfic #MustListen

51qMppYeMGL._SL500_From Audible: “From the brothels and gin-shops of Covent Garden to the elegant town houses of Mayfair, Laura Shepherd-Robinson’s Daughters of Night follows Caroline Corsham as she seeks justice for a murdered woman whom London society would rather forget….
Lucia’s fingers found her own. She gazed at Caro as if from a distance. Her lips parted, her words a whisper: ‘He knows.’
London, 1782. Desperate for her politician husband to return home from France, Caroline ‘Caro’ Corsham is already in a state of anxiety when she finds a well-dressed woman mortally wounded in the bowers of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. The Bow Street constables are swift to act, until they discover that the deceased woman was a highly paid prostitute, at which point they cease to care entirely. But Caro has motives of her own for wanting to see justice done and so sets out to solve the crime herself. Enlisting the help of thieftaker Peregrine Child, their inquiry delves into the hidden corners of Georgian society, a world of artifice, deception and secret lives. But with many gentlemen refusing to speak about their dealings with the dead woman and Caro’s own reputation under threat, finding the killer will be harder and more treacherous than she can know….

Available from Audible

My Review

Wow this was a superb audiobook. I felt transported to Georgian England with this fantastic tale full of murder, prostitution, lies and so much more!

I really liked Caro Corsham and thought she was a brilliant character, an intelligent woman who wanted justice for the murdered woman. Peregrine Child the thief-taker she hires was an interesting character who was trying to keep out of the way of a certain man whilst he made enquiries for Caro. They made a great team as they get caught up in all sorts of unsavoury situations, as the plot twisted and turned through the back streets and grand houses of London. 

The narration by Lucy Scott was incredible, a new-to-me narrator who I’ll definitely be on the look out for in the future. She brought Caro, Peregrine Child and all the other characters to life so expertly, it was a wonderful listening experience.

This is definitely my one of favourite listens this year, and it’s given me a book hangover! I haven’t read many books set in this time period, and this book definitely makes me want to read more! I highly recommend this on audio if you enjoy historical fiction.

Thanks so much to NetGalley and Macmillan UK Audio for my digital copy via the NetGalley App.
