Enjoyed this very much, for its treatment of a developing Washington DC in 1906, Congressional politics, race relations, Jim Crow laws, "passing for white," backstage in Shakespearean theater, etc. Wyatt is a believeable, sympathetic character, and the supporting characters are interesting and varied. While this is the second book in the series, one could read them out of order and not feel lost at all.

Fascinating historical mystery

Along with creating a cast of richly drawn characters and a nicely paced plot with satisfying twists, Harold's book provides fascinating insights into race relations at the beginning of the 20th century. The attention to detail in creating a portrait of Washington DC in 1906 is impressive and a delight to read.
