Can't wait for the next one.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Poisonous Seed: A Frances Doughty Mystery (Paperback)
This was one of those books I didn't want to put down (even to walk home from the station, and I avoided walking into anything while reading as I walked!).
Written with a wealth of detail, in a style that evokes the atmosphere of London of the early 1880's and draws the reader into the day-to-day lives of the characters, to experience alongside them the events as they unfold.
If you like a good period-style murder mystery, in a book that delivers more than just the mystery, then this is probably the book for you. I know I shall be waiting eagerly for the next book in the series.
