    Highly recommended - the author is a historian as well as a story teller!

    I love how C.S. Harris will weave true facts into a story to make it real, as well as interesting. This installment of the Sebabastian St. Cyr series is no exception. The characters are wonderfully developed. Gotta love Paul Gibson, Lady Claiborne, Lord Jarvis even. But especially, Hero and Lord Devlin. William Franklin, the son of Benjamin Franklin, reappers in this book. As it is said in French, "a chapeau!"

    a super whodunit

    In 1812 England, doctors are forbidden to dissect corpses. Conscientious physician Paul Gibson pays resurrection diggers to bring him the bodies of recently interred people. Paul has in his possession the remains of twentyish Alexander Ross, who allegedly died in his sleep from a heart attack. However, when he examines the body, he realizes the man was murdered by a stiletto stabbed through the base of his skull.

    Unable to report his findings to the authorities who would arrest him and probably ignore the homicide as too much bother, he asks his friend Sebastian St. Cyr to investigate as he know Lord Devlin has a compulsion to solve mysteries. St. Cyr accepts the case and looks into the deceased's occupation at the Foreign Affairs office; where he was privy to state secrets that many would kill to know. Assuming that was the motive, St. Cyr feels a second similar homicide affirms his belief when the body of American Ezekiel Kincaid is found in a ditch. Fearing for the life of his feisty pregnant fiancée Hero Jarvis who St. Cyr believes knows the corpses' connection that he fails to find, he still uncovers viable suspects in the international world of politics where literally backstabbing is the norm.

    Entertaining with details of various class lifestyles in Regency London, the latest St. Cyr mystery (see Where Serpents Sleep) is a super whodunit as potential killers seem to be in every ballroom. Enthralling as the hero chases suspects while seeking clues to identify the actual killer and in between arrange his wedding to his beloved frustrating Hero. The murder investigation is excellent as readers obtain insight into early nineteenth century politics that proves uglier than even our current American system enhanced by the romance between two independent personalities.

    highly recommend

    This series is excellent. It not only is a mystery novel, it has intrigue, romance and intensity. I'd recommend this series because it also makes you of historical timeline and how fortunate that we are living today, Particularly women.

    Good Read, need to read the whole series

    The books consistently have well thoughtout story lines and this was even better. Liek that Ms Jarvis is his equal and gives him balance. She can outthink him at times, this keeps it fresh. Look forward to Devlin and Ms Jarvis expanding their murder franchise to a wider purview than just London.

    Fantastic Series!

    I really enjoyed this series, and though many are on the fence with the Hero story line, I love it! Don't even think about starting this series in the middle, read from book one. Richly developed characters with a fantastic mystery sub plot throughout the series.

    Regency London: July 1812. How do you set about solving a murder no one can reveal has been committed?

    The "rich period detail [and] riveting action"* C.S. Harris delivers in her Sebastian St. Cyr mystery series reaches new heights as the aristocratic sleuth navigates dangerous political waters to bring a murderer to justice... Regency London: July 1812. How do you set about solving a murder no one can reveal has been committed? That's the challenge confronting C.S. Harris's aristocratic soldier-turned-sleuth Sebastian St. Cyr when his friend, surgeon and "anatomist" Paul Gibson, illegally buys the cadaver of a young man from London's infamous body snatchers. A rising star at the Foreign Office, Mr. Alexander Ross was reported to have died of a weak heart. But when Gibson discovers a stiletto wound at the base of Ross's skull, he can turn only to Sebastian for help in catching the killer. Described by all who knew him as an amiable young man, Ross at first seems an unlikely candidate for murder. But as Sebastian's search takes him from the Queen's drawing rooms in St. James's Palace to the embassies of Russia, the United States, and the Turkish Empire, he plunges into a dangerous shadow land of diplomatic maneuvering and international intrigue, where truth is an elusive commodity and nothing is as it seems. Meanwhile, Sebastian must confront the turmoil of his personal life. Hero Jarvis, daughter of his powerful nemesis Lord Jarvis, finally agrees to become his wife. But as their wedding approaches, Sebastian can't escape the growing realization that not only Lord Jarvis but Hero herself knows far more about the events surrounding Ross's death than they would have him believe. Then a second body is found, badly decomposed but bearing the same fatal stiletto wound. And Sebastian must race to unmask a ruthless killer who is now threatening the life of his reluctant bride and their unborn child. *The New Orleans Times-Picayune
