Not your best David
I found it even better than "Goodnight Sweet Prince" as the characters have become more rounded, full and kind of personal. Lord Francis Powerscourt, the main character, and his wife Lucy, their children Thomas and Olivia but as well their best friends Johnny Fitzgerald are personalities one can bond with. Their relationship and friendships are described by their deeds and not by my grand words. I like that very much.
The plot is excellent. Final Revenge after 350 years... well I am not going to say more about it. Just one more hint: turn a stone in a cathedral and one never knows what will creep out!
David Dickenson puts his education and background to excellent use. His description of the end of the Victorian area is superb. He describes the net-working of the most powerful in a most convincing manner. And gets his history right!
But most divine is his description of Augusta Cockburn - here he hit the head of the nail. This must be a perfect role for any actress. She would surely win the Oscar as best supporting actress for it.
Anyway, I suppose you have got my message by now: 5 stars
Go and buy this intoxicating book and meet Lord Francis, his friends and family and enjoy a great murder mystery! I am going to get my “third dose” soon as two more books
by David Dickenson are waiting.
If these sort of details don't bother you, it's a pretty good story.

David Dickinson writes a fantastic story in the late 19th century and early 20th. Once one picks up one his books you are lost and with the best will one just has to read on. Read morePublished on 16 May 2014 by Mrs. M. A. Bowen
