I've given this an A for narration and a B for content at AudioGalsI’ve read andor listened to a number of the books in Darcy Burke’s The Untouchables series and generally enjoyed them but what attracted me specifically to The Duke of Lies was the fact that the premise is reminiscent of one of my favourite films The Return of Martin Guerre Set in medieval France a man returns to his village – and his wife – after a long absence and is welcomed and accepted by all until doubts begin to creep in as to whether he really is who he says he is The film was remade in the 1990s as Sommersby and the setting shifted to the American Civil WarIn The Duke of Lies the returning character is Rufus Beaumont Duke of Blackburn who has been absent for six and a half years after disappearing without explanation during a visit to London His wife Verity is not exactly heart broken at her husband’s continued absence; he was a thoroughly unpleasant boorish man who routinely ill treated her and humiliated her and she was actually relieved at the news of his sudden disappearance At the beginning of the book she is visiting an old retainer the former steward of Beaumont Tower Blackburn’s seat in the north of England with her young son Beau whom she hadn’t known she was expecting until after she learned her husband had vanished without a trace She has become concerned of late with the behaviour of the current steward – a man who was appointed by her interfering father – and has decided it’s time to do something about it and plans to dismiss him Feeling lighter now that she’s made the decision she returns home only to have her peace and happiness shattered by a completely unexpected – and unwelcome – arrival RufusYou can read the rest of this review at AudioGals
