Once more, Octavius Guy is on the case! He is tasked with discovering some way of removing Reverand Allaston Burr from his post as all other avenues have been unsuccessful. This investigation, however, takes a deadly turn and then Octavius must apply all his detective skills to find a murderer.

It was an absolute delight to meet up with Octavius again! His previous exploits have built up his confidence and when he is approached by the residents of Highbury, he is confident he will be successful again. However, the case is not an easy one, and George is being stubborn.

There is an intriguing cast of characters in this story, and they all have their own secrets. Secrets they don't want Octavius to discover. This makes things especially interesting when a murderer is at work and any one of them could be a suspect.

While I had my own suspicions, I wasn't sure until the end. I love a mystery that keeps me guessing and is not immediately apparent. I very much look forward to seeing what is in store for Octavius in future books. More with a certain young lady, I hope?

For those looking for a fun and clever Victorian mystery, look no further!

While I received a free copy from the author, all opinions expressed are my own and I am voluntarily reviewing.
