Temporarily out of stock. I've read every other Liberty Lane book, and was looking forward to another great read, but something about this story just didn't work for me. It was well-written, as usual, but maybe the whole series is just going on too long. It feels like none of the characters are growing, and I dislike the supposed romance between Liberty and her beau.

Mr. Benjamin Disraeli often asks Miss Liberty Lane, private inquiry agent, to help him expose miscreants in the government. She is about to expose a spy at a dinner party when a young man comes up to "rescue her." It turns out to be her brother Tom, back in England from his position working for the East India Company. A co-worker of his, a Mr. Griffiths, a man who "went native" in India and was criticized for it, is now being accused of stealing jewels that did not belong to him; he will be brought up on charges in London. Tom believes he is innocent, but Griffiths is stirring the waters by planning the publication of a pamphlet that shows how the British have abused the Indian people. Things look bad—and then get worse: Griffiths is murdered.

Liberty is also distracted by the fact that her young assistant Tabby has disappeared, and asked a friend to supply her with a sharp knife. She wonders if it is due to a case the two of them worked where a man was trying to poison his wife.

Despite the fact that Liberty seems to live very freely for a single woman of the time, I love these mysteries. Early Victorian London is very evocatively portrayed and I love Liberty's friendship with street urchin Tabby and groom Amos Legge, who takes care of Liberty's only inheritance from her late father, a beautiful racing mare. Much is going on in the novel besides the mystery of Griffiths' murder: there's a little bit of history about British/Indian relations, a subplot in which Tom intends to take his sister back to India and find her a husband, and even a slightly amusing bit where Liberty's friend Beattie plans an Indian dinner and makes all sorts of foreign dishes with no idea of how they are supposed to taste.

I give this one four stars only because I love the author. This wasn't my favorite of the Liberty Lane books, but it was still good, with the prose and quirks of the others in the series. I just found this mystery a bit plodding and not nearly as fast-paced or exciting as the other books. I know it's not fair to rate a story against others but as this was the 5th in the series, I suppose I was expecting more.

I just love Liberty Lane - she's so well put together - I like her spunk and how she's independent. I have very much enjoyed this series - great supporting cast of characters. I read a lot of mystery books that are similar and in a similar British setting - I have found the Caro Peacock books to be a little more sophisticated and classy. Can't wait for the next one - I hope the story will take Libby to India!
