Good day! May I introduce to you another sensational Regency romance novel from the highly regarded inventor of the genre, Georgette Heyer.
‘The Unknown Ajax’ is set in 1817 and tells the story of the inventive Hugo Darracott, who arrives in Darracott place after the drowning of Lord Darracott’s eldest son. The irritable Lord sends for Hugo, whom he has never met and presumes to be uneducated and of low social status. Hugo chooses to conform to the family’s expectations, adopting a regional accent and a gormless manner.
But how long can he keep up this false persona? What’s more, what happens when it begins to define him?
‘The Unknown Ajax’ is testament to Georgette Heyer’s commendable ability to blend elements of romance, comedy and suspense into her remarkable novels that have long withstood the test of time. First published back in 1959, this charming story is as accessible now as it was more than half a century ago.
This complete and unabridged CD audiobook of ‘The Unknown Ajax’ is compellingly read by Daniel Philpott. Also available to download as an MP3 audiobook, this title offers over eleven hours of quality audio entertainment and is the perfect accompaniment to a long train or car journey, or a relaxing evening at home.
