Lord and Lady Lassiter are young, minted and living the high life in the Bohemian artistic circles of London. It’s Christmas, 1893, and the excitement of a new millennium is already gathering pace. New opportunities! New ways of living! An end to stuffiness and convention! But society and business are still controlled by the old guard. Where there is money, there is power. And where there is both, there must be corruption. Lord Lassiter chooses the wrong friends and he quickly finds himself ensnared in a criminal gang within the sophisticated world of art fakes and forgeries. He begs his father-in-law, Lord Calaway, for help to get him out. Theodore agrees, but no sooner than they begin their investigation, the main player is killed. Now they’re all involved but this is a far more dangerous world than anything Theodore has known before. He needs all his wits about him. Adelia, Lady Calaway, is at his side but they’ve made powerful enemies who will stop at nothing to keep control of their secrets. Will he have to choose between justice – and his family’s safety? This is the fifth book in the series called The Discreet Investigations of Lord and Lady Calaway. It is written by an actual Brit, so it may contain unfamiliar spellings, vocabulary and grammatical structures.

No memorable harsh language No gory violence Action sequences (someone gets beat up, that kind of thing) No sex Plot no spoilers: Adelia and Theodore, our two main characters, are concerned about the social life of their daughter Charlotte and her husband, who clearly enjoy their society connections with Bohemian art community. Additionally their daughter has been secretive about certain about friendships, including one with a questionable art dealer. It's not long before one of Charlotte's acquaintances apparently dies of severe indigestion, and his dinner guest is hospitalized with a milder case. The initial police investigation classifies it as accident or natural causes. Because Theodore and Adelia doubt the diagnosis, Theodore uses his influence as a medical doctor to gain entrance to the morgue and examine the body. This was no accident; and so, the private investigation begins. Likable characters Several good plot twists Although this is the 5th book in the series, I don't think you'd need to read the others before enjoying this one.

    Excellent! Really enjoy this series! Historical mysteries---- good ones ----are difficult to find. Lord and Lady Calaway are extremely enjoyable individuals as they pursue their discrete investigations, which usually involve one of their 7 adult daughters. In this series, the reader becomes involved with their family and their lives. Truly excellent story plot lines, with lots of suspects and confusion!

    Great fun I have enjoyed this series since it began. As an older American female, I still have issues with the way women were treated as property, but Lord and Lady Calaway and their extended family is more broad minded. It's just a nice place to go for history and mystery. Great fun I have enjoyed this series since it began.
