It’s 1667, Charles II is on the throne and London is still recovering from the Great Fire. A body is discovered in a pavilion belonging to Lord Clarendon and James Marwood is tasked with investigating the murder. There’s one big problem, the victim is Edward Alderley, cousin to an acquaintance of Marwoods, Cat Lovett.
Cat and Edward have a bad history. Was she responsible? The King and his courtiers seem to think so. Can Marwood uncover the truth before Cat is arrested?
This is a fast paced murder mystery with a lot of twists and plots including a major twist at the end.
The characters are perfect in their roles and you can’t help but like them, especially Sam and Margaret, servants to Marwood.
I really enjoyed this and totally did not expect the final twist! I won’t say any more as I hate to ruin books for others but I recommend this for anyone looking for a great mystery!
