    9. I picked up this book in a SC bookstore while looking for something for the long ride home to Michigan I found the protagonist charming, the supporting characters well drawn, and the story engaging It s hard to find all that with good writing as well, but this book delivered I ll look for of Mr Pryor s work.

    10.

    14. This series is interesting in that every plot, and the pacing, is different This one takes place almost exclusively in France, with an interesting historical twist which isn t revealed till near the end I have now caught up with reading the entire series, having started with 5, The Matador, then The Bookseller, 2, and then tried to be as sequential as possible in catching up Looking forward to seeing where the next adventure goes, since there have been some unusual wrinkles in the plots.

    15. I liked this book better than The Crypt Thief Like how Pryor weaves different stories together and I love things with an historic bent Like Hugo Marston s character But I think he takes giant leaps in his sluething Even though our author shows how he deduces events I sometimes think he couldn t jump there without information.

    16. The investigation into the death of an elderly woman from a noble French family, and the arrival of a brusque American Senator in Paris for diplomatic talks, keep Hugo and Tom busy, even so when the two events become connected in unusual ways.A couple of surprising plot twists made this third book in the Hugo Marstan series both intriguing and heartbreaking.

    17. I enjoyed this Hugo Marston story much than the previous one The pressing question of whodunnit is nicely resolved and we are left with an intriguing question related to the history of France, and an incidental mystery involving Tom Presumably the latter will be resolved in an upcoming sequel, which I am looking forward to reading.
