Kathleen Jowitt's review
Mar 09, 2020
This book opens on a hot day in London. We know it's hot, because we're told the temperature... in degrees Fahrenheit. Sadly, this lack of attention to detail continues throughout the book, with an obvious lack of understanding of the duties of a lady's maid, the intersection of Roman Catholicism with the British class system, and the melting point of silver all throwing me out of the story at times. I also never really found the hero a convincing character. However, the book made for a diverting way to pass a train journey, and the ends were tied up in a pleasing and surprising manner. Some lovely descriptions in there, too.
