Not the best
[I received this book from GoodReads/First Reads. And I thank them in advance for their generosity. However, I was not compensated otherwise and my opinions are my own. Now you know, and knowing's half the battle ;)]
Thank goodness it's NOT Steampunk! However, it is a "penny dreadful" Victoriana mystery, emphasis on dreadful.
Campbell Lawless is a wanna be ANYTHING than what he sees himself: a son who let down his father. He gets involved in such a mixed up mess I never could figure it out. He was an unfortunate soul prior to joing the force, and then Scotland Yard; bad with romance, family dynamics, tact and fashion, he gets embittered searching for the culprit. I still have no clue as to whether or not he solved it.
I do like Sutton's descriptions. The women and children are well developed. I loved the librarian....but was not charmed by the book. sorry, its a pass
