Murder in Bloomsbury: An Atlas Catesby Mystery
After the events at Mayfair were resolved, Atlas spent the last year trying to move on from his feelings for Lilliana. When he returns to London after his latest trip, Lilliana requests his help investigating the death of her maid’s brother, claiming he was murdered with arsenic. Unable to say no, Atlas dives into the investigation and discovers the man had a mysterious lover and a penchant for finding trouble. While he’s back in Lilliana’s life, he finds they have the same spark between them as the last time he saw her, but a lavish gentleman’s presence in her life forces him to face his feelings.
D.M. Quincy breathes new life into historical mystery, capturing a tone and style that completely immerse you in the past, with dialogue fitted to the era and an inside look at London’s high society and its twists, betrayals, affairs, and struggles for reputation. The world is detailed, and the mystery is perfectly suited for the setting, bringing surprises and a long list of suspects, many with a level of sympathy and propriety about them. The relationship between Lilliana and Atlas is sincere and romantic, with clever banter. She’s a strong woman with a poised personality and an air of elegance about her in how she conducts herself while also being curious, loving, and opinionated. Atlas is charming and every bit the polite gentleman with the personality of a wanderer and a rebellious streak when it comes to titles. Everything about him makes him the perfect historic gentleman. Mystery lovers will adore the charm and world of Murder in Bloomsbury, immediately falling in love with Atlas and Lilliana.
