The Earl of Wrexford possesses a brilliant scientific mind, but boredom and pride lead him to reckless behavior. He does not suffer fools gladly. So when pompous, pious Reverend Josiah Holworthy publicly condemns him for debauchery, Wrexford unsheathes his rapier-sharp wit and strikes back. As their war of words escalates, Londons most popular satirical cartoonist, A.J. Quill, skewers them both. But then the clergyman is found slain in a churchhis face burned by chemicals, his throat slashed ear to earand Wrexford finds himself the chief suspect. An artist in her own right, Charlotte Sloane has secretly slipped into the persona of her late husband, using his nom de plume A.J. Quill. When Wrexford discovers her true identity, she fears it will be her undoing. But he has a proposaluse her sources to unveil the clergymans clandestine involvement in questionable scientific practices, and unmask the real murderer. Soon Lord Wrexford and the mysterious Mrs. Sloane plunge into a dangerous shadow world hidden among Londons intellectual enclaves to trap a cunning adversarybefore they fall victim to the next experiment in villainy . . . Thoroughly enjoyable . . . with sharp, engaging characters, rich period detail, and a compellingly twisty plot, Andrea Penrose delivers a winner . . . fans of C.S. Harris and Kate Ross will be rooting for Charlotte Sloane and the Earl of Wrexford. Devilishly good fun! Deanna Raybourn Fans of C.S. Harris take note! In this new, Regency-set mystery series, the artist Charlotte Sloane and the scientist Earl of Wrexford are the perfect mismatched pair of sleuths. A riveting ride through Regency London, from the slums of St. Giles, to the mansions of Mayfair. Lauren Willig, New York Times bestselling author A wonderfully engaging Regency mystery, with a most determined heroine and an engaging pair of street urchins at her side.

I just love a pair solving a mystery! This Regency era series features an interesting combo of an earl/chemist and a widow/satirical artist. I look forward to learning more about these two in future books, as well as more of the endearing little street urchin brothers who are key side characters. 💕

Thanks for sending this to me @Laughterhp !

Crazeedi I have this book, was given it, need to read!! 4d

Regency England comes to life in this first in a series. Strong characters, with danger lurking in the London fog and talk of alchemy, lead the storytelling. The ending has piqued my interest for book two.

I‘m a little late sending this out, @bookwrm526 , but I‘m hoping I can get it mailed on Friday. #whodunitthesequel

An interesting regency mystery, with complex characters & good prose. Raven & Hawk in particular utterly stole the show! The last third was more of a thriller, as the answers were found rather quickly & the villain was who they thought it was. Also, I could have done without the small instance of racism towards my people close to the end — it spoiled my liking of the story considerably, for obvious reasons. Let‘s see how it goes in book 2! ★★★☆☆.

I got this book as part of my murder mystery subscription from my local indie bookstore. Loved every second of this regency mystery set in London, complete with chemistry, an earl and a feisty illustrator. Cosmo was too sleepy to argue against the picture. #catsoflitsy Thank goodness for this book to distract me from a book club book I‘m hating!

It took me a few chapters to get into the writing style, but I quite liked this Regency mystery. Partnering an artistic, poorer woman with a scientific aristocrat made for an interesting pairing of protaganists. The side characters were also fantastic.

I did guess whodunit before the characters did, but it took awhile. No more details, though, as I don't want to give away something for the other #whodunitthesequel readers.

I'd give it a solid 4⭐

robinb Glad you liked it @ScientistSam , I did too! 👍🙌😊 Looking forward to the next one in March. 2y

I wouldn't have picked this up myself but I was really happy with it! I'm not a big fan of the nobility in Regency England but this story played off of it nicely, addressing it as a societal structure and how its influence can control motives. The early science world view was really interesting! It felt a bit like Caleb Carr meets Arthur Conan Doyle. 🤓 #MurderOnBlackSwanLane #AndreaPenrose

A huge thank you again to @MorgansMenagerie for hooking me up with my very first ARC, because it set the bar high. I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery set in Regency London. Fascinating characters, and a look at life outside the haute ton. The science involved in the mystery, and the ties between alchemy and early science were well handled. I hope this is the start of a series, because I'll be first in line for every one. Only swan pic I have😊
