Disclaimer - I could only make it through about a third of this book - so it is possible that I have missed out on a great masterpiece but somehow I doubt it. I encountered a bit of espionage and romance during my attempt (this book may set an all time record for blush scenes.) The author also includes a somewhat preachy anti-alcohol message. I found a few points of interest but for the most part it was tedious reading.
An amazingly fun mystery, with plenty of twists and surprises. You'll like the lovely and brilliant heroine, Miss Erith.
