Another Brilliant Sebastian St Cyr Mystery
It ranks near the top as I have been following the series since if first appeared. I like the period and this is a good mystery series in which the writer also has a writer who knows the period very well
My favorite charter and most interesting one is Hero Jarvis whose father wishes she were a boy and really does not understand all the things she get involved in. In this story she is involved in finding out who murdered the girls in by burning down a half-way house for prostitutes.
Davina Porter is such a brilliant narrator that she makes every character come alive by giving them a unique tone and quality of speech. Her narration is the unsung hero of this book. I always look for a book where she is the narrator as she is one of the best in business. She is able to give a unique voice to characters whether male, female, or children and imbues here characters with the distinguishing quality of the social class they belong to.
Any lover of historical mysteries will want this book. And I noticed that there is only one more book to add, to have all the series available on Audible .
