For those of us who have been long intrigued by the mysterious past of Hannibal Sefton, our patience has been amply rewarded. I will not deliver any spoilers here but say that I immensely enjoyed the history of how the erudite and courtly but dissolute Irishman ended up making his meager living fiddling in New Orleans, as well as the glimpse of those friends and family that he left behind him. Now that we know a little more about Sefton I'm looking forward to learning the background of the surreptitiously sharp Kaintuck City Guard Shaw and how he developed his passion for pursuing justice in the notoriously corrupt environment he works in.
Barbara Hambly has again delivered a mystery that compelled me to forsake sleep until the last page was turned. If you are looking for a mystery with absorbing multi-dimensional characters, an engrossing historical look at the unique racial and familial relations of New Orleans in the early 1800s or just simply an entertaining story you can not do wrong with any of Hambly's Benjamin January series!
I sure wish that one of the books in this great series would be made into a major motion picture or a Masterpiece Theater production. They truly deserve to be!
