"The Blood" is a great history mystery novel that is set in London during the Victoria era. An intriguing mystery work that touches class/sex inequalities, the harsh living conditions of the commoners, the development of medicine and etc back in the 19th century. The author creates a balance mix of suspense and historical elements into "The Blood" which makes it an excellent read overall. This is not a cozy historical mystery novel but a dark, grim and serious one instead; entertaining throughout but at times a bit heavy. The plot is excellently crafted. The beginning is slow but the pace picks up quickly once the first victim is found. The unfolding of the mystery does not confine to merely guessing for the culprit but as well the yearning to learn of the unfortunate pasts of the victims. Well-developed characters, too. Both the recurring characters or the featured ones in this installment are vividly depicted; I seem to know the characters well even without reading the prior installments. Without being wordy, the author imbues the plot with the essentials elements and builds the characters in the most inconspicuous but effective way. In short, "The Blood" could be read as a standalone. I honestly think this series has a lot of potential and it deserves to get more attention from readers especially those who adore quality historical fiction. I for sure will go back to read the previous two installments and to look forward to any future releases.
