As in the first two in this series, the crimes are extraordinary and imaginative, and grisly enough to grip you without trailing gratuitous blood and gore throughout the text, which for this reader at least would be a turn-off.
Penny is a master at creating a sense of place and atmosphere, and in bringing together characters whose culture and heritage should ensure conflict, though often results in unlikely friendships and collboration instead. He is also terrific at producing memorable villains, and without giving anything away about the plot, I have to say the climax of this book is on a par with one of Holmes's famous encounters with his nemesis, Moriarty. I know it's a cliche to say it, but this really would make a great film.
As to the historical content, I know very little about the era and place in which the book is set, but found the book contained enough material drip-fed in, interspersed with the plot, to inform me without lecturing, and to intrigue me to want to learn more about it. And one opportunity to learn more that I shall definitely be taking up will be to read future books in this series, on which I am now completely hooked.
Disclosure: I received a free ARC in return for an honest review.

Thomas Berrington is becoming a sleuth to match Sherlock Holmes, albeit without the deer stalker and pipe.

A relatively new reader of this author I look forward to more tales of Thomas Herrington. The work is up there with the likes of Susannah Gregory and Bernard Cornwell.Published 6 months ago by amazon regular
