Karen Charlton, MURDER IN PARK LANE
This is the fifth book in the Detective Lavender series. Set in the early 1800’s in England, this series features Detective Stephen Lavender and Constable Ned Brooks. As with all of the other books in this series that I have read so far, the plot is complex but well thought through, and the sense of time and place is accurate without being intrusive.
The main characters are well developed, and their personal and family lives evolve throughout the series. If you enjoy historical fiction and mysteries, these are books well worth considering.
