As with all Boyce's novels, the cast of characters is an interesting and well-developed mix, and the historical context and setting brought vividly to life without the reader ever feeling like they're having a history lesson. Boyce's gift for creating a sense of place shines as ever, whether Dan's on duty in London or being commissioned to investigate a rural mystery - in this case the disappearance of recently discovered hoard of Roman gold in rural Staffordshire. I particularly admired the evocation of the highwaymen who were such a real risk to travellers, the dismal Staffordshire community around the vicarage where much of the action takes place, and the prison scenes.
Although this is a period in English history that I am not well versed in, I'm really enjoying learning more about the facts and harsh realities of life in those days it through the compelling Dan Foster series, as well as more about his character, as his intriguing back story (street urchin turned pugilist) continue to be unveiled. And cleverly, although Boyce never romanticises the period, she also weaves in compelling subplots about Dan's marriage and other relationships that add an extra layer of interest and poignancy to the series. Looking forward to his next adventure already.
I accepted a copy of this book to read. The review opinions are my own.
Another fascinating historical thriller from Lucienne Boyce, this novella is a quick, compelling read.
