  • Getting better and better

    I have read the whole series and still cannot get enough. Always intriguing, always captivating. We are still learning new bits and pieces about the characters and the research on this period is outstanding. I can well imagine the Captain and his family in France for the next episode. Great read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Captain Lacey and Ashley do it again

    I just LOVE Captain Lacey mysteries! The characters and scenes are so detailed and interesting! I wish you could write a book a month! I only found this series late last year and I read them all by Christmas, then preordered St.Giles and have devoured it. Keep them coming! Thank you!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Will return to this series with gusto.

    I've received an eARC at no cost for the author. Murder at St. Giles was my first Captain Lacey’s book – and I can’t wait to read the other books! Although I do like mysteries, I usually end up a bit disappointed because I can tell right away who did what (in this case, who killed Finch). But with this book, I kept thinking “who did it? Who did it?” because I just couldn’t tell. I really enjoyed discovering the killer along with Gabriel Lacey and Brewster. The one tiny thing I would have liked a bit more is movement. Sometimes it was a bit slow, how the story was developing, and at the end it was maybe a bit too quick. But it was very satisfying, I didn’t feel like things were left to chance, everything was very well planned, since the order of meeting the suspects, to the suspects themselves. The subplot was also good, although I have to say I didn’t connect with Donata and her son Peter that much, but that might have to do with only meeting them now, and not in a previous book. The most important part of this subplot, for me, was showing Captain Lacey in a different light, more of a husband and father (same thing with his daughters, Anne and Gabriella), which I could appreciate. In the end, it was a great historical mystery book, it kept me guessing and wondering and I liked most of the characters, which meant I was truly engaged with what happened to each of them. I will, definitely, return to this series and read more about Captain Lacey.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Murder in St. Giles

    As always, a good story, well told, with information about the period which is both atypical and fascinating. This time, the hulks used to detain convicyed criminals before deportation and pugilism among the lower classes. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

    Thanks for your feedback!
