The Restoration is in full swing and King Charles i This is a highly complex historical espionage book.

The Restoration is in full swing and King Charles is firmly on the throne. Chaloner is working on four separate mysteries, but the more he digs into them, the more they appear to be connected. And as he gets closer to unmasking the villains, his life is put in danger, not once, but several times. Gregory's main strength is her impressive plotting skills. This story has more twists and turns than a Victorian labyrinth. I invite all to climb aboard the Thomas Chaloner train if you love historical mysteries. This is one of the best series out there. I love it just as much as her Matthew Barholomew series which I also read faithfully.

May 16, Diane-OP rated it liked it. This is the first of hers I've read - from the comments perhaps it wasn't a good place to start. It caught my eye as I was whipping past the new book shelf toward books on hold at the library I kept being reminded of The Scarlet Pimpernel as I was reading. I probably won't rush right out to get another one - but I did finish it. Mar 04, Sue Hyams rated it liked it. I'm a huge fan of Susanna Gregory's Restoration London books and have them all but I don't think this was one of her best.

Although the storyline is good - well plotted and the threads hold together well - I felt it could have done with a big edit. Sadly a bit 'skippy'. Aug 11, Diana Herrera rated it it was amazing. The series just gets better and better, in my opinion.

Tom Chaloner is really growing on me. What happened to Leybourne? I know some explanation for his absence was given a couple books ago but it's like he's just disappeared now.

But his protestations fall on deaf ears with the exception of Frances, the Earls wife who Chaloner finds to be a woman of excellent sense.

Not only is Chaloner sorely beset with work issues, but all is not well at home with his new wife Hannah who has engaged a number of servants, Chaloner neither wants, or having met them, trusts. As Chaloner sets to uncover the perpetrator of the threatened assassination, he finds links to other misdeeds, and coupled with the terrific sense of period that Susanna Gregory portrays, this is an intriguing and fascinating book.

Still really enjoying the series, but the formula is getting a little too old now. That's a kids' book, but this series? There's no need to do it, and to do it so bloody tediously and repetitively. That's one of my biggest grievances with this series. Refer back, but please stop chucking in par Still really enjoying the series, but the formula is getting a little too old now. Refer back, but please stop chucking in paragraphs every couple of pages to explain in detail a character that we already know very well.

I'd also like it if we didn't have pretty much every character, bar a few, in every book having such dripping antipathy for Chaloner. I get it, his occupation probably does make him far from likeable to a lot of folk, but come on, for a reader it just gets very tired. To the point where you can start predicting pretty accurately though to be fair I was slightly off the mark this time.

All the character come alive in her writing, the bad and the good and the read literally takes you back in time. She also gives a blurb on the actual "facts" of the time at the end of each novel. Thomas not only manages to complete three assignments for the Earl, each at much peril, but has some unknown help by a servant he helps out at the end. Chaloner really isn't good at domesticity; having married in haste and then been sent abroad, he returns to find his new wife is determinedly upwardly mobile: At least he has another mystery to take his mind off things.

This is my second Thomas Chaloner title and I am still trying to get excited about him. It should be a page turner, but it's not. He isn't likable and sometimes he is just downright stupid. I prefer my sleuths to have a human side rather than an omniscient know-all, but his mistakes just make him look foolish instead of endearingly human.

I own the books and will undoubtably read more, but t I have a stack of these that I bought at a used book store because the premise and reviews were appealing. I own the books and will undoubtably read more, but they won't be my first choice. Which I find sad. Mar 08, Diana rated it liked it.
