This is an episode of the John Shakespeare mystery series. Our hero is tasked with solving multiple mysteries in this edition, which may or may not be intertwined. The multiple mysteries excellently wrap around throughout the tale as they are investigated and both true and false leads are investigated. At times gritty yet always exceptional in details are the scenery, characters, and seemingly period appropriate descriptions (is. employment, dialogue, etc). A brief reference at the end of the tale, allows a glimpse into actual history as well. Overall, an intriguing read!
I really appreciated the author's understanding and use of actual historical trends and events, and his tieing them to modern themes and tropes.
