Barrister William Snopes finds himself up against insurmountable odds with an innocent man's life at stake.
A riveting read, filled with intrigue and surprising twists along the way. I loved the classic feel of the novel that evoked the style of the British detectives like Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie. Snopes is a sharp man, clever, fair, as well as compassionate. I admired how he was willing to put it all on the line right a wrong and save a life.
I'm not sure if there will be more books in the future with these characters, but I think that it was definitely set up in a way that it could standalone or continue. I liked Madeline her grit and determination to save her family's estate.
A riveting read, suspenseful with multiple twists and turns along the way. Engaging and especially perfect anglophiles or lovers of a good mystery!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
