This is a solid and well-written mystery, firmly set in its historical period. It's the second in a series and they would be best read in order as many of the characters and the situations extend from the first story. On occassion it is difficult to keep track of the extensive cast of characters, but most of the characters are distinctive enough and well-drawn enough so that it is managable. I particularly enjoy the historical details. In addition, this is not as dark as much crime fiction set in present times. There are indeed a number of brutal murders, but in spirit the books aren't really cynical about human nature.
