About the Author
During preparations for Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, ScotlandYard's Inspector Blackstone investigates the death of an earl's son in a poor section of London. The murder of an aristocrat would divertattention from the Jubilee, so Blackstone has orders to interrogatesuspects, gather clues, and pursue a criminal while keeping the murder a secret. Blackstone soon discovers that the victim, despite onerousfamily problems, was an aspiring journalist looking for-and apparentlyfinding-a "hot" story in the Russian immigrant community. This newseries from the author of the Chief Inspector Woodend novels features anicely captured Victorian ethos, solid prose, and winning subplotdiversions. Anne Perry fans and devotees of Victorian-era mysteries will enjoy this new historical. For most collections.

Sam Blackstone's New Scotland Yard superiors want him to do the impossible: find out who slit young Honorable Charles Montcliffe's throat withoutspoiling Queen Victoria's Jubilee celebration by letting anyone outsideof the immediate family know that Lord Montcliffe's youngest son isdead. ...An interview with editor Archibald Scott sends him to Whitechapel insearch of the shadowy aristocrat Count Turgenev. And there, in the heart of London's Little Russia, Blackstone meets Hannah--beautiful,intelligent, and infinitely desirable--who shows the detective the way to infinite danger.
Rustage's Blackstone is as much a maverick asWoodend, but without the moral ambiguity that complicates and enlivensSpencer's contemporary stories.

I liked the Blackstone character and that of the Russian lady he met. I hadn't known about
"Little Russia" in London before, so that was interesting.
I am sure the nobility did act (and possibly still do to a certain extent) as badly towards their
servants as the Earl and the Viscount did. And as to speaking to a "low-life" policeman - well!!
My sympathies were entirely with Blackstone about having to deal with them.
There were two twists towards the end - only one of which I suspected.
A well researched book about late Victorian London life, written by a man a.k.a. as Sally Spencer.
A glimpse if Victorian life with history woven in.
