it makes me a little impatient I guess What makes this book so appealing to me is the atmosphere the evocation of the London that one writer characterized as diamonds gleaming in the manure pile Rich was better than poor by right; titles better than all the masses by right; royalty FuhgeddabouditThe characters around Devlin are all very clearly delineated and several recur no spoiler in that since it's a series mystery with evolving storylines that tie them into a unit in some unexpexcted and honestly some surprising and upsetting ways Of course the female characters are single emotion placeholders I say of course because a first mystery usually has this minor and female character flaw giving them shorter shrift than is advisable early onWithal the book is very worthy of your shelf space; the series is high uality reading; and the price of entry paltry compared to the pleasures you'll get I am always a fan of a good historical mystery so I believe I have just found myself a new series In this first book we meet Sebastian St Cyr a young man who is good looking charming a little bit dangerous and of course rich The setting is Regency England which is another big plus for me Add to all this a good fast paced story an interesting mystery and several other sympathetic characters and you have yourself an excellent read Looking forward to the next one 4 starsI won book 10 in this series 2 years ago and liked it enough that I decided to go back and read of the series This book 1 in the series takes place in January 1811 in London England The author uses a familiar formulaie an innocent person is accused of murder and sets out to find the real murderer in order to clear himself Sebastian St Cyr Viscount Devlin is accused of killing Rachel York a beautiful actress found dead in a church with her throat slashed so severely that she is almost decapitated A pistol with St Cyr's coat of arms is found at the sceneThe author has woven a tangled web of deceit and lies encompassing French spies sexual peccadilloes blackmail and murder St Cyr does untangle the web At times his numerous escapes from constables seem to stretch reality but the book reads very well with a fast moving plot and well drawn characters I read it in 4 daysI recommend this book to historical fictionmystery fans I borrowed it from the library
