Sophie was waiting for her ladies' maid to wheel her to her bedchamber, when she screamed. In front of her she sees a dead body, white and pale in the candlelight. She reaches out a hand and touches its cheek.
It's hard like stone to the touch, but it's warm too, as though it hasn't been dead for a long time. She trembled. In the darkness, the statue whispered the word 'Aphrodite'.
What is the mystery of weeping statue?

introduces a detective I want to learn more about
Mixed review here: This is a "regency" mystery that introduces a Marquess as a sort-of detective. I say "sort-of" because he doesn't do much investigation but he does some. He is an interesting character, not necessarily likeable but intelligent and one I would like to read more about. I put "regency" in quotes because other than a reference to Pride and Prejudice being recently published and calling a wheelchair a Bath chair there was precious little of the traditional regency genre flavor to this. I liked the mystery and the inclusion of an invalid in the story.
The narration was fair. There were several instances of extraneous noises and a few mispronunciations. However, the narrator did a great job in the crucial scene and I was hanging on his every word.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
