really liked it

An enjoyable read of the historical-mystery-fiction genre, #2 in the Julian Kestrel series. I thought this was a tighter book than #1. The plot progressed at a nice pace and the characters were well-written. I liked the new character Sally. It's fun trying to figure out the Cockney phrases that she and her brother, Dipper (Kestrel's streetwise valet and ex-pickpocket) use in conversation. The three suspects are wildly divergent in background and motive -- discovering whodunit is fun without being so outlandish that you conclude by asking, "What, how did that happen?"

This series is just the ticket for a light, entertaining mystery read.
