Harris, C.S. When Gods Die.
A Sebastian St. Cyr mystery, the 2nd in this Regency series. Now, I've read the first three, but there are two more in this series that I have not gotten to yet. I like the period and Harris does a good job of keeping me interested in both the mystery and the period details.
The Prince Regent is discovered with the body of a beautiful young woman, and Sebastian is pulled in to help find the murderer, for more personal reasons than to aid the Prince Regent. Sebastian seeks the aid of his old friend and physician to determine the actual cause of death as the staging of the murder is misleading.
There is also the personal connection concerning the necklace the victim was wearing; it belonged to his mother. Sebastian uncovers several intertwining tales of intrigue as he searches for the murderer.
While there are some flaws that bother me, I enjoy this historical mystery series.
