This review is from: A Particular Eye for Villainy (Lizzie Martin 4) (Hardcover)
Ann Granger has continued the story of Lizzie and Ben Ross in this new Victorian era mystery. It is well written and keeps the reader interested throughout. Lizzie is, as usual, involved against the wishes of Ben and his superiours at Scotland Yard, in the murders of two diverse characters - The down-at-heel gentleman, Thomas Tapley and the seedy private detective, Horatio Jenkins. It is good to read about sleuths who don't have mobiles, fingerprint kits and CSI departments at their fingertips - just good old-fashioned clues and commonsense. As always there are several twists and turns and the obvious and not so obvious suspects. I particularly like the way Ms Granger lets the women be "real" not the stereo-typical Victorian heroines. A worthy sequel to the first three "Lizzie and Ben" novels - I hope there are more to come.
