This is the latest in a series of Capt. Lacey mysteries that are excellent. Lacey is all that you could wish for in a gentleman investigator, and his friend Grenville is an added bonus. The only problem is that there aren't more of them!

I have so enjoyed this series of books. A really great read. Ihave bought everyone that has been released on the nook. I hope you intend to keep writing this series. You are a new author for me and i probably would never have found you but for the nook. I have so enjoyed discovering new authors through electronic book publishing - its like having a whole day in the library browsing - but to get back to ashleys books - more please more!

I believe that this may be the first book that has left me sitting on the edge of my seat agog with suspense by tying up subplots. Indeed, the awful thought crossed my mind - what if Gardener tied these up as an end to the series? No, I reassure myself, the tying up isn't entirely tidy, there is still a major subplot left open, and new subplots to come.This is another superbly told and involving mystery. I have been extremely impressed with Ashley Gardner's writing. Her characters are complex and I am always happy to be with them again. One can sympathize with them in their cross-purposes, even as they pain one another. Lacey continues where the last book left off, seeking to dissolve his marriage with the long-estranged wife who deserted him, hoping to find his daughter, and courting his new love. In this volume, it appears that someone is preying on the "game girls", not something terribly important to officialdom, but worrying to those, like Lacey, who have a strong sense of justice. When his daughter disappears, most of the characters are forced into re-evaluating their relationships in the course of a frantic search.The drawing together of several loosely inter-related subplots appears to be the precursor of allowing major changes in Lacey's life. I presume that Lacey will continue as a crusader for justice, but his personal circumstances are changing radically, and I think it is very brave of Gardner. It is extremely rare for the situation of a character in a series to alter as much as it seems Lacey's will, but the preceding volumes give me great faith that the series will continue to be excellent. This is what has me on tenterhooks - where does the story go now? How will Lacey deal with this new situations? At this point, I am so caught up with the characters, I wouldn't even care if there was a mystery in the next book, so long as I can continue to follow their lives.An excellent addition to a superior series.

I usually will not read books with less than 300 pages and prefer more than that. Short books just seem so short? however I just keep coming back to these books. I love the characters and all the interplay. So I 'spect I will continue till the end.

These historical mysteries are ideal for someone who wants to get away - a perfect novel to read while traveling This is #6 and it advances what a reader knows about the uber-villan as well as the main character. I've read all books available in the series this summer.

I am very impressed with the Captain Lacey books and I'm almost sad that I've read them all. I'll wait for the new ones. Hopefully, there will be more.
