I enjoyed this installment of the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series. It was a very interesting plot with many twists and turns amidst the background of the approach of the 2nd Boer War and the end of Victoria's reign. I highly recommend. I just hope this isn't the last in the series.

This entry in the Thomas Pitt series was ok, but just. I found it to be rather predictable and did not like the method of justice done on the storys main villain, actually it was quite disconnective to the Pitt character, not like him at all to act like that. I did like Pitts reward at the end of the book though, a nice touch. I do like this series overall, the London period settings are always well described.

I really enjoyed this book. Pitt struggles to do his job and is frustrated at his memory loss whilst people around him seem to know more about his past. He second guesses himself because of this handicap, but his colleagues and friends have his back, believe in him and work very hard at helping him resolve the vendetta against him.
