Murder in Mayfair: An Atlas Catesby Mystery by D.M. Quincy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
1814 and Atlas Catesby and his friend the earl of Charlton are on their way back from Bath to London when stopping at an Inn they witness a man selling off his wife. Ever the gentleman Catesby buys the wife to save her from worse degradation.
Unfortunately for the wife, her husband is found dead. And Endicott, the Bow Street Runner employed to find the murderer suspect her and Catesby. To clear their names he is determined to find the guilty party.
A well-written, romance mystery with characters who seem to have some progressive views for the time period though this didn't distract from the story. I look forward to see how the characters develop in the next book.
