I think my prevarication towards actually reading this is seen in how I enjoyed and struggled with this novel There are pockets throughout the book that are truly engaging and fascinating but there are also parts where the story stalls out This book was a fun read but wasn t the brilliant work I was hoping for There are a ton of flaws throughout I felt that the author tried to tie together far too many things into less than 500 pages which is ridiculously difficult There are too many characters many of them just mere side characters that lack both full development or are discarded and forgotten before the end of the novel Additionally the ending is very abrupt I usually believe that if the ending is too fast it s because I want to the book to go on but in this case it s just over but happily so I really wanted to like this one but there are just too many problems that limit it s score Spoilers We never find out what happens to Jonathan and Alexander after the house burns down and the enemies are all dead Does Jonathan get reinstated in his government work because now he knows what happened and needs to be kept uiet Does the government find out about Crawford Who exactly sent the hit team to him What about Lucket There are so many loose ends in this novel so many uestions left unanswered that it simply underscores the weaknesses that are present throughout the novel at the expense of it s positives

    Elizabeth Redfern has crafted a thinking person's historical thriller in this vivid account of a man's search for his daughter's killer and the uest for a lost planet among refugees from the French Revolution The sights sounds and smells of 18th century London permeate the tale of Jonathan Absey a calcifying civil servant whose family and personal life have crumbled following the death of his daughter who was strangled by a serial killer pr

    Much as I wanted to love this novel it just lacked something to rate than three stars despite the allure of its well depicted period setting a range of characters that felt authentic than is often the case in historical fiction reasonably gripping serial killer plotline mixed with spies astronomy and political intrigue in late 18t
