In every St. Cyr mystery, there comes a point for me where I just need to cancel all of my plans because I'm going to spend the rest of the day finishing the book. In this one, it came in the early middle, which is a lot sooner than the previous mystery. This one is also slightly less political, instead centering on King Arthur & Co and various architectural pursuits involved therein. Plus the personal drama continues along (not as personally dramatic as previous books, but there's still plenty for Sebastian to feel all moody about). The point is: true to form; I want more.

This is a very readable series of mysteries set during the regency period in England. (For those who care, it is the same time frame as the Patrick O'Brien novels as well as those of Jane Austen, I think.) I have a suspicion that someone who really cared about the mysteries would perhaps find these frustrating. I feel like an awful lot got introduced in the final three chapters. But I read these as much for the settings and the character development. Both of those are excellent.

I think it is very important to read these in order.
