There are hints that it could be a series--possibilities for future relationships that are touched on lightly--so I can hope for more!
The plot is absorbing, the red herrings deceptive. I was really carried away into a different world that held my interest throughout. This development seemed perfectly natural to me: His subconscious was ready, but his conscious mind too distracted and overwhelmed to do it. Perfectly appropriate from my perspective! I am eager to read more from this excellent writer! One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful.
I read this book in just a couple of days, which is a good testament to its characters and pace. It's an engaging mystery with mounting suspense, and the author is gifted with a good vocabulary and a thorough feel for the period. The female protagonist, Penelope, is well developed, and her role seems fairly consistent with the morals and culture of the Regency era.
Penelope is caught up in the search for justice after a well-born woman is murdered, and in the course of her deepening involvement, we become acquainted with John Chase a Bow Street Runner and Buckler, a barrister, among many others. Like one other reviewer, I was a little consternated by the frequent introduction of new characters.
I am an avid reader and I see this flaw in many books. It makes me admire authors who are able to lay the groundwork with a concrete cast of characters and then artfully spin a web to make the reader wonder who-is-up-to-what.

In this book I was also confounded to the point of irritation at times by awkward passages that made me wonder who was speaking to whom. Overall, the elegance and structure of the story, as well as Rizzolo's commitment to historical accuracy, redeemed the book and will probably prompt me to pick up the next novel in this series.

The Rose in the Wheel
The main suspect is painter Jeremy Wolfe, whose wife enlists the help of barrister Edward Buckler, to learn the truth. As the story unfolds from each of the main characters viewpoints, we are provided a snapshot into the reality of Regency London.
I enjoyed my visit to the past and recommend to others looking for carefully crafted historical mysteries. Writing fiction set in the past imposes limitations on the writer, especially if one cares enough to do right by the nuances of social class and mores of the time.

Rizzolo has done her homework and more, creating intriguing characters worthy of the series she's developed. I especially enjoy the way the lives of English women of the early 19th century are depicted. The characters were fascinating and the plot kept me guessing until the end. I am going to be reading the next book ASAP.
