Read from January 31 to February 05, 2010

Enjoyed this but not as much as the first two. I missed the world of London and the Countess' crazy house and servant Gregory. With the setting moved to France I learned some stuff about the Jacobites in exile and about French society of the period but I missed the old environs. Some of the humor was a bit strained, like the would-be writer who kept coming up with ideas for book titles like 'Pride & Prejudice' and 'Crime and Punishment'. Fitting that the finale of the book should be at a masquerade as almost no one was who they appeared to be.
