Review

This book is a mixture of racialism, hatred and most importantly love; with the body of an unknown black woman dressed as a man and found frozen in the pond at New Hall, it was left up to the rector Reverend Hardcastle who is also the magistrate along with is able man of business Stemp an officer by day and a smuggler by night and not forgetting Mrs. Chaytor to investigate the circumstances of her death and who she was. As the tale unfolds and the clues get put in their right order, the conspiracy starts to unfold, a conspiracy that can plunge a country into war. This tale was well woven with its interesting twists and turns, a rather quaint mystery and I find myself liking it very much.
