The characters are so well written. The plot, amazing. I look forward to reading more of Symington's adventures soon.
As regular followers of my blog will know I love history and I love crime, so mixing the two together in a brilliant book is just perfect for me and Sarah E Smith has done it perfectly with her first crime novel, A Cowardice of Crows.
The setting is Victorian England, the crime? Well it's not a crime, it's a suicide . . . Isn't it?!?
Sarah's knowledge of this era is absolutely second to none, I utterly adored how she drew me into the time, I could quite easily have been sat on the periphery of the whole book, it was fantastic!
Her writing is great too, the plot is thick and fast, gory and detailed and utterly gruesome!
I loved Byrd, he reminded me a little of Sherlock Holmes, a real gentleman, a mystery, the one all the ladies want but none will get. A charmer and a sleuth and a fantastic one at that. He is very realistic and fits into the era perfectly, as does his cousin, Charles Carter. I also loved that some of the story is based on true life events, it made the rest of the story a lot more plausible.
With twists and turns and a criminal who is always one step ahead,, A Cowardice of Crows is a complete sleep stealer!
