The third installment of the Sebastian St. Cyr mysteries is as dark and intriguing as the first two with young Viscount Devlin coming into to his own as a reluctant 19th century sleuth. Though diving into these mysteries is scandalous and well beneath his station as a nobleman; you get the feeling that cutting against the grain of English Society is in no small measure why he has chosen to do it. With his trusty teenage sidekick Tom, Devlin unravels the brutal murders of several young men who's butchered corpses frighten and appall English upper crust Society. It is also the machinations of the affluent society that Devlin must navigate through as he sorts out the truths from the secrets from the lies that hide a scandal that rivals the dead bodies piling up. Add into the mix intrigue and forbidden love and in the all you have an enjoyable read that moves at startling speed until you are taken in so far that you can't wait to find out who the murderer is or how Devlin will bring him to justice. Or if there is really an justice as all.

The whole series by C.S. Harris of Sebastian St. Cyr books are a great historical novel read. The characters are believable people and blend of historical persons with the invented characters provides a level of realism. Sebastian St Cyr is the Stone Barington of the early 19th century.

After reading the first two books in the series and liked the characters and especially, the historical references. However, this third book had a couple of real surprises! I don't want to spoil this for anyone, but when I read one of these surprises I literally jumped out of my seat. I am enjoying getting to know Sebastian and the other characters in more depth. Also, I never get tired of the details, the description of the clothing, the places, and all the history woven into the story. It is a real treat to read a novel by a historian, who really knows the period, places, and her characters.
