This is my review of the book The Evil that Men Do by Alanna Knight which I read recently. This is the third 50p market stall Alanna Knight books, and was well worth the money. It is set in high society of Victorian life.
The hero of the story is again Detective Inspector Jeremy Faro and this time he is a happy man as his stepson Dr Vincent Lauri is going to be married to Grace Langweil. Grace comes from a well to do Edinburgh family,
But sadly Cedric Langweil is found dead. Did he commit suicide or was he murdered? Jeremy is given the unenviable task of investigating. None of the family want to believe it was them.
Was it one of the servants, or someone closer to home. Gradually as the story unfolds the dream of happy- families is destroyed, as a dark family secret is revealed. To say much more will spoil the story though I will say that the final unexpected twist appears right at the end of the story.
An enjoyable atmospheric believable book, and well worth the 50p spent on it. I will keep my eyes out for more of Alanna's books to read in the future.
Having nearly caught up with my backlog of books from my travels in February, I will record this as book 30 week 24 fiction 28 (audio books 4) non fiction 2
