    Continues to be a very strong series with well-drawn characters & excellent historical detail. This mystery, set mainly in Bath, takes protagonist Anne Cartier away from the fraught happenings in Paris & back to her native country of England, also removing her from several recurring French characters such as her husband. However, it also reintroduces characters from previous entries the reader didn't expect to see again - a family from "Black Gold" & a family from "Fatal Carnival." It's interesting because O'Brien uses the opportunity to flesh these seemingly one-story characters out further & fill in background details that make the reader want to revisit the earlier books. Of course, events in France are getting ever closer to the full-on French Revolution, & I'll be interested to see how Anne & her French friends & family fare in the coming storm.
