Customer Review

on 3 June 2012
What a wonderful start to a very good series of books about Lord Francis Powerscourt and his colleague Jonny Fitzgerarld. It is a very well written tale on the mystery about Prince Eddy, and, what he died of (there are still various theories to this day). The story uses the history of the then Prince of Wales to great effect, mixing fact with fiction superbly. From the start of the book the reader is transported into to murky world of Queen Victoria's England, (from scandals about homosexual brothels to cover-ups at Sandringham) quite beautifully, and then, on to Venice, where the mystery is finally solved, and back to England for the final twist in the tale.
This is a very good read for anyone who enjoys murder mysteries, especially historical ones as David Dickinson's knowledge of history is superb, as it is throughout the whole series of books about Powerscourt.
