Wow, I have been reading her whole series in order and each book gets better. I loved it and of course I never guessed the killer. There were several smaller mysteries in it too that had to be solved and I only guessed one. Wonderful charicters and so well written, it's like you're there in old England.
Enjoyed the book; I like historical mysteries especially those set in regency England. Interesting plot kept me reading as my guesses on the why & who were wrong. Good period details and a few quirky characters; hero & his servant. Plan to read all in the Julian Kestrel series.
I enjoyed this book as I have not enjoyed a mystery in some time. It flows well, has characters who come across as real people, and the answers to the mysteries- more than one in this story- are not obvious yet not outrageously improbable. I'm not sure how I have missed this author and series all this time but I am about to remedy that oversight! A very good read.
