Keeping Bad Company
by Caro Peacock
Private investigator Liberty Lane faces the most challenging case of her career in this absorbing mystery
London, 1840. Private investigator Liberty faces a conundrum when her younger brother Tom, an East India Company employee, is unexpectedly summoned to London to give evidence at an official enquiry into the murder of a wealthy merchant’s assistant, found with his throat cut en route to Bombay.
A connection between the dead man and escalating rows with China over the lucrative opium trade has caused the government concern. Can Liberty solve a murder that took place six months previously almost five thousand miles away?
“This is a delightful mix of historical mystery and cozy with a strong woman protagonist”
“Liberty’s fifth case nicely balances the exotic history of the East India Company, whose private army rules India for British gain, with a mystery that offers a wide range of possible evildoers”
