Sebastian Becker, a former Pinkerton man, lives in England and investigates wealthy eccentrics who may be too insane to care for their own affairs. He is asked to investigate rich landowner Sir Owain, but arrives to discover two young girls have been murdered, and it is not the first time children have come to harm in this small town.

Owain's sanity is in question after a disastrous adventure that killed his family and colleagues, and Becker suspects him of the killings. A smart young suffragette and the wild daughter of a horse trainer had a frightening childhood experience that may hold some of the answers Becker seeks, but only if Becker can convince them to trust him in time.

    " A very well written mystery with rollercoaster of a ride at the end. But thoroughly interesting throughout. Excellant protagonist, an ex Pinkerton man fallen on hard times due to his son's special needs. The son possible exhibiting the symptoms of an early(historically) Aspberger autistism. I'm going to look for more of the author's books. "

    " The pace was a little slow. I liked the characters and would hope for another entry, where the characters may develop a little more. The main character's son and sister-in-law are worth some time in development. The police officer who works with Sebastian and the lady he admires are also worth revisiting. The plot made the book a little tedious, since the actual exposition happens in third person recollections, but overall, Gallagher has created an interesting take on early 20th century London. "

    " The only shortcoming to me was that at times the plot didn't stick to the setting( pre WWI era) well. The premise of the ex pat American former Pinkerton agent was unique to me, and I particularly enjoyed the inclusion of his son, who I guess, well don't want spoilers. The mystery was particularly well done and I hadn't a clue until about 2/3rds through the book. The families of the murdered children could have been better developed. "

    " I almost didn't want to read anymore after the part on the train. I felt the description of the speciman was a little much....maybe I just have too good an imagination. Anyway, I decided to read on and see how the story went. Turned into a really excellent British type detective story and I enjoyed it very much. Some of the action was a little slow; but it keeps you guessing right to the end. No way to tell who is truthful and who is not. Surprise ending. All together a good story. "
