Betrayal in Time | Julie McElwain
13 posts | 8 read | 19 to read
February 1816: A race through the icy, twisting cobblestone streets of London ends inside an abandoned church--and a horrific discovery. Bow Street Runner Sam Kelly is called to investigate the grisly murder of Sir Giles Holbrooke, who was left naked and garroted, with his tongue cut out. Yet as perplexing as that crime is, it becomes even stranger when symbols that resemble crosses mysteriously begin to appear across the dead man's flesh during autopsy. Is it a message from the killer?Sam turns to the one person in the kingdom who he believes can answer that question and solve the bizarre murder--the Duke of Aldridge's odd but brilliant ward, Kendra Donovan.While Kendra has been trying to adapt to her new life in the early nineteenth century, she is eager to use her skills as a twenty-first century FBI agent again. And she will need all her investigative prowess, because Sir Giles was not an average citizen. He was one of England's most clever spymasters, whose life had been filled with intrigue and subterfuge.Kendra's return to the gritty streets and glittering ballrooms of London takes her down increasingly dangerous paths. When more bodies are discovered, murdered in the same apparently ritualistic manner as Sir Giles, the American begins to realize that they are dealing with a killer with an agenda, whose mind has been twisted by rage and bitterness so that the price of a perceived betrayal is death.

Now I'm in a book slump after reading this entire series in the last 2 weeks. Now I have to wait for the next book, which is my least favorite thing to do.

This series continues to surprise and entertain me, and I sincerely hope that Kendra Donovan (21st-century American FBI agent) will have many more crimes to solve in 19th-century England in the future.

This was a fast-paced, intriguing murder mystery involving (surprise!) betrayal 🤣 (on several levels) and lots of twists and turns. I especially enjoyed the nerve-racking denouement (which was also a bit heartbreaking). ⬇️⬇️

robinb I recommend this series to anyone looking for good historical mysteries. 4.5/5⭐️ 4w

So excited to FINALLY be able to dive into this one this weekend!! 🎉🎉🎉 I‘ve been wanting to read it since it came out in July but have been too busy with ARCs. My hold came in today at the library, and I can‘t wait to see what Kendra Donovan is up to in this fourth installment of a favorite mystery series.

Happy Weekend, Littens!

Laughterhp Oh wow, 4th! I didn‘t realize there was so many! I only read the first. 1mo
robinb @Laughterhp Yes! I faithfully read the other three as soon as they came out and fell in love with this series. I‘ve been frustrated at not getting to this one sooner. I hope McElwain will keep them coming! 😊 If you read more, I‘d love to hear what you think. 1mo

I love this series! Four books in, and I found the mystery in this book and Kendra's efforts to live within the constraints placed on women in the time period still compelling. Already looking forward to the next in the series!

Julia Harris I am reading it right now and so far it is amazing ! 👍 3w

Another amazing story to continue Kendras journey. Have to admit that I sort of saw the ending coming, but there was one plot twist at the end that sent me reeling! I honestly never want this series to end, its so incredibly detailed and twisty that it makes it so enjoyable. I need the next book ASAP! 5/5🌟

Day 3 of #30junebooks is underrated! I think this mystery series about a time traveling FBI profiler stuck in Regency England is underrated. The latest, BETRAYAL IN TIME, can easily be read as a stand-alone if you haven‘t read the series before, bc McElwain does a great job of explaining back story without spoiling anything.
