Most disappointing of the Libertus series. Much running around futilely, much not seeing the nose on one's face, much assuming on no evidence.

I'll read the next one because I've liked the others. But unless that goes back to a higher standard....

A new author for me, but always enjoy historical mysteries. You get a good story plus a history lesson as well. And this book didn't disappoint in either respect.
