Step into the past through three historical mysteries that reach from Imperial Rome to Victorian London.
A Soupçon of Poison
(Kat Holloway Victorian Mysteries)
Kat Holloway, a young cook, highly sought after by the wealthy of Victorian London, becomes embroiled in murder and must clear her name. Only the mysterious Daniel McAdam, who is much more than he seems, can come to her aid.
(Leonidas the Gladiator Mysteries)
Leonidas, freedman, once the most popular gladiator in Rome and champion of the games, now must fight for his life outside the arena. A man who owed him money was murdered, and Leonidas is a prime suspect. With the assistance of Cassia, daughter of a Greek scribe who has been bestowed upon him as his slave, Leonidas fights for justice in the back lanes of Imperial Rome.
The Necklace Affair
(Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries)
Captain Lacey agrees to help a society matron discover what has become of her cherished diamond necklace and to clear her maid, who has been arrested for its theft. Lacey quickly becomes enmeshed in scandal and past secrets, and finds himself competing with the underworld criminal, James Denis, for the necklace's retrieval.
Past Tense Perfect
Three short stories by a mistress of historical crime, each engaging in its own way. I know Captain Lacey from previous books but Leonidas the retired gladiator and Kate Holloway the cook are new friends whose adventures I hope to enjoy as I would have enjoyed one of Mrs Holloway’s meals.
Enjoyed this book very much well worth reading
