Secret Mischief

Blake’s seventh “Fidelis & Cragg” mystery (following Death and the Chevalier) is slow-paced, with a startling conclusion. Readers who enjoy historical and legal perspectives will appreciate the careful attention to detail in a story showing how the accused had to prove their innocence.

Skin and Bone

Devotees of the late Bruce Alexander's "Sir John Fielding" mysteries will delight in this fourth series outing (after The Hidden Man).

The Hidden Man

Rich in Georgian historical details, this period mystery follows the previous two entries (A Dark Anatomy and Dark Waters) in exploring the dark depths of a small provincial English town and its inhabitants. The lively, collegial interplay between Cragg and Fidelis and narrator Cragg's observational tone will keep readers engrossed until the puzzle's resolution. Readers who relish their sleuths with an 18th-century flavor, especially fans of Bruce Alexander's Sir John Fielding and Deryn Lake's John Rowling, may want to investigate this promising series.
