    Nice historical crime novel

    In "Murder in Bloomsbury," Atlas Catesby is once again involved in the investigation of a death when Lady Lilliana, the woman for whom he has feelings, asks for his help. The dead man is the brother of her maid who is firmly convinced that he was murdered, even though the cause of his demise was ruled an accident . Like the first volume, this book is rather quiet and a typical cosy crime. The case is somewhat predictable, although there are definitely exciting moments. Atlas and his companions spend most of their time interviewing the various suspects and looking for clues and evidence, for which Lilliana's high social standing is helpful, but the story is still captivating. As a reader one is curious to find out what happened to Gordon Davis, even if one quickly realizes that he was not necessarily a nice person and that there are a few characters who had a motive to kill him. At the same time the author takes a look at the more scandalous sides of society in that era, for example, extramarital sexual relations and exposure to seemingly pornographic books, which I found interesting. Like in "Murder in Mayfair", a highlight of the book is that the story is well integrated into the historical time period which is written realistically. The protagonists themselves and many of the witnesses are of a relatively high social standing, even though Atlas finds the obligations of that tiring, while the victim did not have that status and this contrast was quite important to the plot, which has allowed Quincy to show different circumstances and living conditions. In addition to the investigation, the personal relationship between Atlas and Lilliana also played a pivotal role. The dynamics between them were again written nicely and considering the developments in this volume, I am curious to see what will happen next, especially because of the potential problems that the protagonist himself addresses. There was also stuff going on with the other characters that makes one wonder where the story will go in regards to them. I rate this book 4 stars for a nice historical crime novel.
