The Queen of Bedlam Robert McCammon Pocket, Oct 2007, $16.00 ISBN 9781416551119 In 1703 in Manhattan a serial killer frightens the community no one in the bustling city wants to talk about the incident known as the ¿Thing That No One Spoke Of¿. Everyone fears that this unknown Masker dubbed that by the Printmaster following the murder of the doctor. The belief is he or she is everywhere and will overhear discussions that may make you the next victim. Twenty-three year old Matthew Corbett clerks for the New York office of the London based Herrald Agency, whose mission is to solve problems. He feels like the sheep following the clues left behind by a predatory wolf as he fumbles and stumbles his way into crime scenes. He turns somewhat nauseous when he finds the corpse of someone he loathes, pedophile Eben Ausley, orphanage headmaster where Matthew was raised. As he reluctantly continues his vigil, Matthew believes the motive resides in an asylum where ¿the Queen of Bedlam¿ lives in blissful amnesia, but the Masker remains anonymous as more murders occur. --- Just a few years have passed since the two volumes of SPEAKS THE NIGHTBIRD, but the adventures of magistrate clerk Matthew Corbett continue this time in his home city instead of the Carolinas. Matthew remains a fresh protagonist as his bumbling amateur sleuthing brings vividly alive early eighteenth century colonial New York City. The story line is fast-paced as the young hero and his partners try to unmask a brilliant serial killer leaving the audience satiated yet also joyfully implying more to follow. --- Harriet Klausner

Even though the first book in this series wasn't available in e-book form, I bought the second and third book in the series. This book is lengthy but the further you get into it the better it gets. I've read some of his horror books which scared me to death, he is most definitely one of my favorite authors, my only complaint is that he doesn't have enough of his books in e-book form. Most definitely recommended.

Nothing more enjoyable then reading historical fiction.

So far i am enjoying this book as well as the other Matthew Corbett books. What I enjoy is Old New York. I work in the area and try to picture what these streets looked like in the 1700s I pretty much own all of this author's books. My first book i ever bought was called Mine.

Don't hesitate to by this book. It's the story you've been searching for. This author is simply the most talented artist I've found in a very long time. Mr. McCarron is Gilian Flynn meets Mel Brooks.

Great sequel to Speaks the Nightbird, Lots of twists and turns, and as usual a lot of distractions in terms of trying to figure out the "who done it". Really enjoy the hero, Matthew Corbett, as he brings a lot to the table in terms of his strength of character, "solving problems" and just being a really good guy.
