The Archbishop of Canterbury's request for help from former spy Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin, is undeniably intriguing: The bodies of two men have been found in an ancient crypt, their violent deaths separated by decades. One is the Bishop of London, the elderly Archbishop's favored but controversial successor. And the last person to see him alive was Miss Hero Jarvis, with whom Sebastian shares a strained, and complicated, relationship.

About the Author:

C.S. Harris holds a degree in Classics and a Ph.D. in European history.

From Publishers Weekly:

Long-festering family secrets, treachery and worse threaten Sebastian St. Cyr in Harris's addictive fifth Regency-era mystery starring the dashing soldier-turned-sleuth (after 2008's Where Serpents Sleep). From the start, St. Cyr's mission is sensitive: finding out who killed the bishop of London, a leading candidate for archbishop of Canterbury, in the crypt of the same country church where the mummified body of another murder victim was discovered only hours earlier. It becomes downright dangerous once the charismatic viscount unearths the surprising connection between the men as well as the many powerful enemies with motives for their murder—including his own father. Harris weaves palpable period detail and romantic subplots with such ease that her occasional descriptive laziness, such as repeats of fiercely blue St. Cyr eyes, grates inordinately. But it shouldn't keep you from being swept up by her seductive antihero at his swashbuckling best. (Nov.)
