Overview

Starvation and disease haunt the streets of 1820s Paris, while supernatural terror stalks the night. The once-famous police force is a shambles, its elite Bureau of Supernatural Investigations disbanded. Only Detective Inspector Elise Corbeau remains, spared by a shadowy protector for a purpose not even she knows.

When charismatic cult leader Hermine Boucher is kidnapped, all fingers point to her ex-lover, inventor Maria Kalderash. But the further Inspector Corbeau investigates, the more suspects she turns up, until finally, the finger is pointing right back at the Paris Police.

Navigating a web of betrayal, hidden agendas, and shifting alliances, Corbeau must protect the innocent, bring the corrupt to justice, and escape the ever-growing list of people who want to see her at the bottom of the Seine. If she can do it, she just might save her job. And she may even find true love.

    I read this all in one sitting. It really was too good to put down, and while it has a lot of substance to it, the story has a brisk pace. The Left Hand of Justice is an unusual, original mystery/thriller that is fast paced and delightfully dark. Faraday uses a setting that blends the grime of history with a brassy steampunk shine. If you are looking for a novel where women are well represented, you will love the facinating, well-drawn cast of characters. You will be cheering for Corbeau, the gritty main character, to beat the circumstances stacked against her.

    If you are disturbed by same sex romantic relationships, then this is not the book for you if that is enough to turn you off a great story. The relationships are natural to the story(much would be lost if any of the characters were differently gendered) and handled discretely. This is not erotica.

    I really enjoyed this book. Jess Faraday combines turn of the century steam punk with dark urban fantasy in the context of a police procedural. 
    And she makes it work. 
    The same sex relationships, and the romance that comes from them, are used to great effect. 
    I eagerly await her next novel.
