When they arrive, her mother announces that Walter, Rosamund's step-father was murdered.
Rosamund and Rob will investigate to find if it was truly murder and if so, who did it. Walter was a Justice of The Peace who had been gathering information for the government. Was that the reason he was murdered?
The search for the truth takes them all over Cornwall. They become immersed in the investigation. All the while, they are trying to determine exactly what did Walter know?
Rosamund is a difficult woman to like. She is self centered, rude, angry, unkind and seldom considers anyone but herself. It appeared to me that she enjoys being rude to her husband and everyone with whom she comes in contact. She is also very smart, a good puzzle solver and quite able to defend herself and others. She has a quick wit and is able to hold her own in any situation. But, her mother can wound her with words.
Rob, her husband is a man of intelligence as well as action. He believes in adventure and has a strong desire to explore the world. This story takes place at the same time Sir Walter Raleigh was sending an expedition to the New World. Rob would love to be a part of such an expedition.
The secondary characters add a great deal to this story. Each person contributes to the layers of the story. Ms Emerson has created a terrific story which illustrates the history of a time in the distant past.
This is part of a series, but it works as a stand alone read. The characters and situations are explained fully and there is not a time when the reader would be unable to follow the action.
And there is a great deal of action. The plot moves forward quickly. The plot keeps the pages turning. As information is given, dead bodies begin to pile up. Things make no sense. There is no way one person could have done all the murders, or is there?
I enjoyed this book a great deal. Ms Emerson kept me involved in the story. She has created an atmosphere that feels as though it is truly from another era. This is a puzzle which will hold your interest until it is solved.
I received this book from the publisher through NetGalley. I am voluntarily writing this review and all opinions are my own.
