Working in concert with his fiercely independent wife, Hero, Sebastian finds his inquiries taking him from the wretched back alleys of Fish Street Hill to the glittering ballrooms of Mayfair as he amasses a list of suspects who range from an eccentric Chelsea curiosity collector to the brother of an unassuming but brilliantly observant spinster named Jane Austen. But as one brutal murder follows another, it is the connection between the victims and ruthless former army officer Sinclair, Lord Oliphant, that dramatically raises the stakes. Once, Oliphant nearly destroyed Sebastian in a horrific wartime act of carnage and betrayal. Now the vindictive former colonel might well pose a threat not only to Sebastian but to everything - and everyone - Sebastian holds most dear.

Complicated plots and finely detailed characters are yet again the author's hallmark.
This time the background is the moral and economic rationals behind chattel slavery in England and her Caribbean colonies.

Another Excellent Book in a Favorite Series
I really enjoy these books; the time period & interwoven historical details add a lot of depth and interest in the plot. I am very glad that Cat seems to be out of the picture, finally, that obsession had dragged on a bit long. Now it is time to settle the matter of Sebastian's relationship with is father. When is someone going to wake him up to the idea that biology is not what makes a 'father'?
One note on the narration. The narration, for me, is just okay. I cannot entirely warm up to Davina Porter's reading.
