Lord John is working on unraveling several mysteries in this novel. He is rather clever and his inner communications are very amusing. I did enjoy this book but having read both Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade and Lord John and the Hand of Devils first, I rather enjoyed those a tad more.

I honestly don't think I would have continued this series, if I had read this book before the other two in the series. It's good but rather unassuming and not altogether interesting enough to warrant a series. Though I must say, that book 2 and 3 were spectacular and I'm hoping a 4th is in the offing.

UPDATE: I just found out that book 4 is called Lord John and the Scottish Prisoner and should be out in 2010.
