The Palace Murder – VL McBeath

An Eliza Thomson Investigates Murder Mystery

Five of five stars

McBeath writes this Victorian series well. Two refined ladies of the upper class, adhering to MOST of the strictures of the day, yet very much their own people and forces to be reckoned with. Well, at least Eliza is. I was a bit disappointed this time to see that Connie was quite happy to revert roles now that her relationship with the good Seargeant is evolving. Thank goodness Eliza is having none of that!

There’s a dead body discovered during what should have been an enjoyable afternoon. There’s a murderer to unmask. There’s no time for wondering “what will he think?”

Eliza always manages to be one step ahead of the authorities, and I must admit one step ahead of me as well. A great read; like me, you won’t want to put it down. I highly recommend it!
