Samuel Pepys and the Stolen Diary by M. J. Lee
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Unfortunately for Samuel Pepys, his house is burgled and his diary containing his indiscreet thoughts is stolen. On finding the thief dead he starts to follow the trail to the mastermind of the theft. At the same time and possibly connected he is ordered by King Charles II to investigate the state of the docks and the Navy at Chatham.
Unfortunately an obvious clue is given who is behind all of this, which did distract from the story, and I found I could not really engage with the characters or the plot.
A NetGalley Book.
