Follows on seamlessly from the first in the series' Death in B......". I find the series an entertaining easy read. I enjoy crime and historical novels and these are an interesting combination of the two. More than one plot line which holds the iattention and interest is maintained throughout. A few other reviewers have had a grouse but I think this is a bit unfair unless you are looking for something dark and intense. I look forward to the last in the series. NB. For maximum enjoyment read the novels in sequence - indeed this is almost essential.
