Betrayal in Time

Despite some awkward use of 21st-century jargon, this is an entertaining mystery with considerable period detail and a touch of romance. Fans of historical mysteries with strong female characters, such as Rhys Bowen’s “Molly Murphy” series or Laurie King’s “Mary Russell” books will enjoy.

Every suspect, along with Antelope and Dr. Pepper, takes a turn telling a version of the story. The accounts and short chapters break up the narrative, making it choppy and sometimes hard to follow. Overall, this might be too disjointed a read for most.
