Summary: Sarah and Frank are preparing for their wedding but as usual death has other ideas.
Frank is asked to discreetly investigate the death of a man who appeared to have died after a long illness but instead may have been poisoned.
My rating: 3/5
This is the first case with Malloy off of the police force so the dynamics of the story changed some. It wasn’t bad but certainly different than before.
There was a bit of a gap between the events in this book and in the last that threw me for a bit of a loop. I really think there could have been another book in between this one and the last. Gino left for the army and returned. I have no memory of that even being mentioned up until this book. Also, Malloy moved into a house.
This novel was one of change for the characters and as a reader I did have a bit of trouble adjusting to all of those changes.
The mystery was a good one and kept me guessing until the end.
This book is good but not the best in the series.
I love this series and would recommend it to any fan of historical fiction and mystery
