Thoroughly enjoyed this latest Lady Emily Mystery. It was wonderful to hear about the exotic lands of Victorian England.

I thought this was among the strongest Lady Emily mysteries to date -- I might have found this, plot-wise, to be the most engrossing book in the series, in fact. I actually guessed who did it early on (through no fault of Alexander's, for the record - it was just a passing thought that I latched on to and it ended up being true) but that didn't diminish my enjoyment of the book at all -- in fact, I almost enjoyed it more, watching how Alexander navigated some extremely tricky territory to keep this from being obvious to the reader until the end. I'd welcome a return to England in the next book, and maybe a bit more focus on Emily and Colin's relationship, but I can't wait to see what happens next.

An enjoyable 'hidden in plain sight' adventure. The title gave it away.

While well-written, the culprit is very evident almost immediately, yet Emily and Colin (supposedly experienced detectives?) fail to see anything amiss. The title gives it away as well.
