If you love a good old-fashioned detective mystery, you will love The Disappearance of Alistair Ainsworth. Filled with secret codes, spies, deception, and some surprising twists, this story gives the readers a case worthy of the great Sherlock himself.
The characters and setting make this novel worth reading. While war is always a hard topic to dive into without totally being depressing, Mrs. Braithwaite and Mr. Norris make an interesting duo.
I’m on my quest to read classic mystery and suspense novels, the ones that have withstood the test of time. I’ve always been hesitant to read “spin-offs” of the great Sherlock Holmes. Seriously, no one can write a classic mystery better than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Hamish DeLuca and Reggie Van Buren are back in action, with their own private investigation firm.
This novel has been on my To Be Read list for quite some time. I’ve enjoyed other Rhys Bowen historical suspense novels and The Tuscan Child is another hit for me.
Based on the mystery surrounding one of America’s notorious killers, this story inserts you into Chicago, 1893, at the time of the World’s Fair. Winnifred Wylde witnesses a kidnapping in the wake of several women missing, the only problem is that no one believes her because she’s “cried wolf” one too many times with her overactive imagination.
I’m a fan of suspense (clearly), and while this book moved at a slower pace than I usually read, I enjoyed this story cover to cover.
