Edmund Burke is both respected and hated. As a member of Britain’s House of Commons, Burke’s position can be a dangerous one. His every move is under scrutiny, so his infidelity must be kept secret. When Burke’s mistress is murdered, suspicion begins mounting against him.
I found this book to be a bit slow at the beginning. But once it got going, it moved along at a steady pace.
The author’s writing is intelligent. This is a compelling tale of political intrigue, secrets and deception – all great qualities in a suspenseful mystery. It reminded me of a good old-fashioned murder mystery. Well worth the read!
