"Take a carriage ride with Henry Rathbone back to the place of his youth, where the tragic death of Judah Dreghorn, a highly respected judge, has left his widow to face slanderous charges that her husband financially benefited when he sentenced Ashton Gower to prison for forgery. As Rathbone searches for clues and mulls over potential motives, Terrance Hardiman narrates this Victorian cozy with such aplomb that we know we're listening to a powerful tale about forgiving the unforgivable and facing what we most fear. It takes a bitter test, he reminds us, to learn just how honorable we are. K.A.T. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
