Great fun witness an appealing main protagonist. Nice to have a detective who isn't tormented by alcoholism sense of guilt,domestic problems blah blah blah. Rather overlooks the fact that the 1760s were riddled with STDs but we'll forgive that in such an amiable fantasy.

Another excellent offering from William Savage. This second book in the Ashmolean Foxe series gives the reader a further fascinating glimpse of life in Norwich at this time as well as seeing the development of the main characters. The murder is resolved satisfactorily and justice is seen to be done.

I have a picture in my mind of Mr Ashmole Foxe: a cross between Percy Blakeney (Scarlet Pimpernel) and Sidney Chambers (Grantchester) - an inquisitive dandy, also a bit of a libertine, but with a strong moral sense. Joseph Morrow, a thoroughly unpleasant Norwich merchant, has been murdered and Foxe is dragooned into finding the murderer. Through many red herrings, wrong turns and with the help of streetwise children, not to mention the redoubtable Mrs Crombie, he eventually solves the conundrum which turned out to be rather nasty in its unfolding.

He is still smarting from the departure to the delights of the London scene of his two inamoratas, the Catt sisters, but being Foxe he soon finds comfort elsewhere - no spoilers from me.

Altogether a delightful read and I look forward to Foxe's next adventure. Well done Mr Savage. How refreshing to have the tale based in Norwich - a great city.

Reviewed by me as a member of Rosie Amber's Review Team

The second book, a stand alone, in the Ashmole Foxe series. Foxe is an charismatic and witty businessman living in 18th century Norwich, a sociable and inquisitive chap with his finger in many pies, who is often called upon by those in power in the city to help solve crimes. This time, it is the murder of Joseph Morrow, a devoutly religious and widely disliked banker, and owner of a yarn business.

The story begins with his murder, an excellent start. This is the fourth book I have read by William Savage, and, as before, I enjoyed the descriptions of the Norfolk of 250 years ago; the domestic detail is well-placed, and of interest to anyone who wishes to know more about how people lived in this time. The author's strength is his witty dialogue and characterisation, and in this book both lived up to my expectations. There is a marvellous part when Foxe, recently depressed by circumstances in his private life, dresses extravagantly one morning to lift his spirits. On entering his bookshop, he imagines his business partner's surprised expression to be one of awe at his fine appearance, though the reader learns that the reason for her raised eyebrows is that she wonders if he has taken leave of his senses, to be dressed in such ridiculous finery at this time in the morning. Later, another associate described him as a 'strutting popinjay'. I loved that!

I found the beginning of the book a little exposition-heavy, as Foxe's circumstances are explained to the reader; although this book is a stand alone, better description is given about him in his first book, The Fabric of Murder, but it is not necessary to read it first.
