Honoré Lechasseur, a "fixer" with time-sensitive abilities, is hired by Emily Blandish to find someone known only as Doctor Smith. He soon discovers that Doctor Smith is a legendary figure that has drifted in and out of Earth's history. As he follows the trail of Doctor Smith, questions arise: what is the Doctor's connection with 1949 London and with the mysterious "cabinet of light" that another group is seeking?
Too much gritty realism for my tastes
I thought this series was about a detective with a little time travel mixed in, but I was mistaken. I read fiction to escape, not to be reminded that sometimes bad things happen that I or the main character are powerless to affect or even to attempt to change. I didn't care enough to finish.
The narrator was great. He did a great job with all the different accents including an American character briefly putting on an English accent.
