I thought this an excellent historical crime novel set in the London of the 1660s.

A murder has occurred in the palatial house of one of the highest courtiers in the land.  The main suspect is a woman wnho had previously been raped by the deceased.  It is a very tangled web for James Marwood to unravel.

 

I particularly liked the way all levels of society were dealt with in a city in the very early stages of recovery from the Great Fire and the rifts from Ctomwellian times.

      Unfortunately this is the first time that I could not get immersed in this
      last one of this historical crime series. The setting up of the backgroind to the action took an unconscionabe time: in the earlier books I was involved much quicker.

      England 1819: Thomas Shield, a new master at a school just outside London, is tutor to a young American boy and the boy’s sensitive best friend, Charles Frant. Drawn to Frant’s beautiful, unhappy mother, Thomas becomes caught up in her family’s twisted intrigues.

      Then a brutal crime is committed, with consequences that threaten to destroy Thomas and all that he has come to hold dear. Despite his efforts, Shield is caught up in a deadly tangle of sex, money, murder and lies – a tangle that grips him tighter even as he tries to escape from it. And what of the strange American child, at the heart of these macabre events, yet mysterious – what is the secret of the boy named Edgar Allen Poe?
