A real gem!,
This review is from: Devoured (A Hatton & Roumande Mystery) (Hardcover)
I opened the pages of "Devoured" hoping for a good murder mystery but in fact it is much more than that. This is an excellent thriller beautifully written within a perfectly drawn setting of Victorian London in the mid-19th century. The characters are vivid and the attention to detail extraordinary. In addition to the main story, I was fascinated by the world of the newly-discovered forensic science and the wider attitude towards it - the author never gets too bogged down with the detail of this but the reader nevertheless discovers all sorts of fascinating historical detail along the way. Make sure you read this one - a real gem!
