Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 26 January 2008
Lady Julia Grey meets the enigmatic Nicholas Brisbane when her husband collapses and dies at a dinner party. Edward Grey had been receiving anonymous threatening letters and had employed Brisbane as his investigator. When Brisbane tells Julia that he thinks Edward was murdered, she resolves to help him with the investigation.

This is a fantastic novel; the characters are interesting and three dimensional; the pace never wavers; and the murder has a real motive that is worth discovering. Unlike many similar novels, this one doesn't peter out towards the end.

The whole novel looks at polite Victorian society and the scandal that is bubbling just below the surface, and it manages to do it with a feisty heroine and a sense of humour!

Highly recommended.
