I liked the period covered in this book which in part looks at the different political struggles that were being experienced in London. The Fenian struggle was a sideline though compared to the question of the social life of the Russian émigrés who were exiled in London and their continued loyalty to Russia and the Romanov Family. Good strong female sidekick, Wentworth. I would like to see this character developed through further London based adventures.

Another great story that will continue to keep you guessing to the end,the only thing that spoils the series is that the stories are not in sequence so you're going back in time with this story after the last stories about France set later in time

Intricately plotted story, beautifully written, with a vivid sense of period. The author has a style all her own. I'm a devoted fan.

I love all these novels with the Joe Sandilands character, I have to say though, that I particularly like the earlier ones set in India. Wonderful easy and engrossing reads all of them.

I enjoy the stories of Barbara Cleverly's dashing hero Joe Sandilands very much. Whilst they're not classics they do entertain me.

Clever ending. Just thought it a bit too long getting there.

Not quite as good as the Indian books, but nevertheless an interesting read with Joe Sandilands in England this time

Sandilands needed a grown up Dorcus as a foil and Wentworth fits the bill perfectly. A really good story line. The historical detail was interesting.

A most enjoyable read. Two mysteries inextricably running in tandem, keep your attention whilst a third strand runs deep alongside of the life of our heroine. Marvelous.
