Robertson has come up with a terrific investigating team set in a time when neither of them would be accepted into "polite" society doing what they do. Together, however, they can't be overcome. Mrs. Westerman is an intriguingly modern woman stuck in the late 18th century, and Gabriel Crowther would be burned as a witch were he female. They overcome interesting obstacles and roadblocks to solve horrid crimes. Add to these two characters a very well-presented view of how life was lived "in those days" and you've got a great series. Instruments of Darkness is the first mystery, and sets up for all the rest (five so far.) Very well-written, very interesting, full of surprises.
