    Captain Lacey is an interesting character. This book and others in the series are well presented with a storyline that will keep you page turning. I am onto my third Captain Lacey.

    Terrifically thought-out characters, excellent plots with an interesting historical backdrop. Don't let the cover art put you off. It's an intelligent murder/mystery not a period romance novel.

    How nice for Grenville to have the Dutch artiste Vermeer in his house, shame it was touted a century later than actually painted.
