The Sign of Death: A Victorian Book Club Mystery
When Lord William Wethington’s man of business is found dead, it is presumed that Mr. Harding has drowned. Until it is discovered that Mr. Harding was not the upstanding man of business he purported to be. Many secrets and enemies are discovered as his web of lies is unraveled. Unfortunately, Lord Wethington is caught in the middle. As the police zero in on Lord Wethington as their main suspect, he and Lady Amy Lovell work desperately to find the real killer. So many suspects and too little time, will they be able to find the real killer before it’s too late?
This is the second book in the Victorian Book Club Mystery series but was well written as a stand-alone novel. The author does a great job of working in all the suspects and leaving clues that keep you guessing until the end. I enjoyed getting to know the members of the book club, as well as the evolution of Lady Amy and Lord William’s relationship. I would recommend this series to anyone who loves historical mysteries.
