The Masque of a Murderer

Today I’m featuring a review book that I’m reading. 

“Let me tell you –!” Lucy Campion shouted, trying to make her voice heard against the rising wind. She scrambled onto the overturned barrel outside of Master Aubrey’s printer’s shop. “–Of a murder most absurd!”

I read and reviewed Susanna Calkins’ first Lucy Campion book, A Murder at Rosamund’s Gate a couple of years ago. I remember liking it quite a bit. Somewhere along the line, I missed the release of her second Lucy novel, From the Charred Remains. Bummer. But when I was contacted by Ms. Calkins for a potential review of this third book, I jumped on the opportunity. So far I’m about 35% into it and am really enjoying it. It releases mid-April, so look for my review around that time.

  1. Kay, London in the 1660s is when these books are set. This is the 3rd in the series and is after the Plague and the Great Fire. But they read so conversationally, that you wouldn’t even know it was set in the 1660s based on the language alone. I have finished this one and I most definitely will be recommending it. I thoroughly enjoyed it but won’t be posting my review until closer to its release date in mid-April.
