I enjoyed the mystery in this book more than the previous 3. It DID deal with some seedier sides of society which hadn't really made an appearance in the other books. However, the actual mystery was much more interesting and really had me thinking even though a murder isn't discovered until close to the end of the book. Normally this would drive me batty but here there is still a mystery, I just began to assume that it wouldn't involve a murder.

It also delved into the horrific conditions of the poor during this time period. I've enjoyed reading how the upper and middle classes coexisted during this time period in England and this adds a new and interesting element. I was so happy to see the return of Aunt Vespasia. I love her! I think sharp-minded outspoken old ladies are probably my favorite characters in novels. 7/10
