LoM Reads: 'What Angels Fear: A Sebastian St. Cyr Mystery' by C.S. Harris
Updated: Feb 3
Lately, I have had a hankering for a Victorian era mystery.
So I am hereby choosing...
"What Angels Fear" by C.S. Harris
Decided to start with the first book of this series, just in case I may want to read more from this series. I hope that is the case. It has a lot of positive feedback. Give me a few weeks and I'll post my review.
THE FIRST SEBASTIAN ST. CYR MYSTERY!
“The combined elements of historical fiction, romance,
and mystery in this fog-enshrouded London puzzler
will appeal to fans of Anne Perry.”—Booklist
"Once again, Harris weds a twisty plot with convincing period detail. This long-running series shows no sign of losing steam."—Publishers Weekly
"Appealing characters, authentic historical details, and
sound plotting make this an amazing debut historical."
Starred review —Library Journal
It’s 1811, and the threat of revolution haunts the upper classes of King George III’s England. Then the body of a beautiful young woman is found savagely murdered on the altar steps of an ancient church near Westminster Abbey. A dueling pistol discovered at the scene and the damning testimony of a witness both point to one man: Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin, a brilliant young nobleman shattered by his experiences in the Napoleonic Wars.
Now a fugitive running for his life, Sebastian calls upon his skill as an officer during the war to catch the killer and prove his own innocence. In the process, he accumulates a band of unlikely allies, including the enigmatic beauty Kat Boleyn, who broke Sebastian’s heart years ago. In Sebastian’s world of intrigue and espionage, nothing is as it seems, yet the truth may hold the key to the future of the British monarchy, as well as to Sebastian’s own salvation....
