Got to read this for a glimpse into history. It is realistic in many ways. Home e you enjoy th he story.
Suspense, romance, lies, murders, and multiple deaths keep you captured right to the end.
Wendeburg has created an interesting character in Anna Kronberg and I enjoyed getting to know her. A brave and dedicated doctor, she lives a double life. Having put herself through medical school, she's become a well-known bacteriologist, but because women are forbidden from practicing medicine she chooses to disguise herself as a man and lives as Dr. Anton Kronberg. Dr. Kronberg has been called to consult on a suspected case of contamination of London's water supply, a body was found, the cause of death may be cholera.
The mystery was well done and believable and I liked the way the author tied the protagonist to the story. If you're like me and you enjoy, rats and plague and filth you'll probably enjoy the cholera and tetanus that make an appearance here.
There were a few editorial errors and a couple of exchanges between characters that could have benefited from a little more refinement. I also felt like there were a few times when the story was less than smooth. But the two main characters were engaging and I really liked the way they worked together and I wanted to know how the hell they were going to get out of the jam they'd gotten themselves into.
I have a big pile of books that need to be read on the nightstand but after finishing this story this morning I kept wanting to read more about Dr. Kronberg and Holmes so, I bought the kindle version this afternoon.
I love that there are warnings listed on the purchase pages for these books. Warning: This book contains non-explicit sex-scenes, violence, and considerable female power.
I hope the next one is as fun as the first one was.
