Enjoyable without being anachronistic! 13 Feb. 2011
By Michael Edward Mitchell - Published on
The problem with historical mysteries, particularly those with female protagonists, is that authors too often give into the temptation to add modern thoughts and opinions about things to make the heroine more likable. While Nell Bray is a suffragist, she still carries with her a lot of baggage (very much of her time) about class and morality. This makes her much more easy to relate to as a character, and also adds depth to the scenes where she is interacting with the more radical characters. The story itself is a fun romp in and out of prison, through the political spectrum of Edwardian England, and right into the heart of the then-nascent concept of intelligence-gathering and national security interests. Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish.
