David Roberts has a pleasing style and these period murder mysteries rattle along nicely.

I should really have started with the first book in the series, but I couldn't find it at the library and this looked interesting. I mostly liked this book, but I found the writing of the main female character to be annoyingly capricious. Also, the mystery was a bit too loosely plotted. Not sure if I will read more of this series.

Roberts is trying to create a detective pair like Sayers' Lord Peter and Harriet Vane, but fails. The book is too novelish to be a good mystery. There is also random premarital sex and the whole book is seeped in pseudo-historical social commentary.

A relaxing sea voyage on the Queen Mary? Hardly! Lord Edward and Verity get tangled up in two murders and several other types of intrigue (as well as each other).

Set in 1937 and featuring Lord Edward Corinth & Verity Brown. Appears to be an attempt at re-creating Lord Peter Wimsey. Predictable. Not a success.
