Deadly Peril: A Georgian Historical Mystery by Lucinda Brant features Lord Alec Halsey. When Halsey’s friends are imprisoned by an old adversary, he does what he swears he will never do. He returns to Midanich, which is in the midst of a civil war, to free his friends, praying his past will not haunt him but, more importantly, that he can protect those most dear to him during his mission. Meanwhile, his romance with Selina continues under the watchful eye of Halsey’s godmother, Duchess of Romney-St. Neots.

Lucinda Brant’s Deadly Peril: A Georgian Historical Mystery is a compelling mystery with more twists and turns than a roller coaster. The historical references pull the reader right into the period, and the likable characters make sure not one scene is lacking in ingenuity, compassion, love, or intrigue. Brant shows amazing talent in the way she mixes the historical components with the characters' backstories so well that it is easy to forget how much education well-written historical fiction has to offer. I particularly loved the description of the gaming table.

This is the second A Georgian Historical Mystery by Lucinda Brant that I have enjoyed. Brant consistently offers a magnificent story filled with all the pomp and diplomacy that one would expect from royalty during the 18th century. Her choice of narrator, Alex Wyndham, sets the tone perfectly. His enunciation is spot on, and the pacing is perfect. The production quality is clear and professional. Overall, this audio book rates two thumbs up.
