Monday's Musings on a Mystery
March 26, 2012
For March, the Monday Mystery Book Club read Where Serpents Sleep by C. S. Harris. This book is set in 1812 London. The main character, Sebastian St. Cyr, is a Lord challenged to solve the murder of a seemingly low brow prostitute named Rachel by his antagonist’s daughter, Hero. Secrets abound and many characters have reasons to stop Sebastian’s investigation. The question becomes who really killed Rachel and why? Along the way much is uncovered--pleasant and not so pleasant.
Everyone in the group liked Where Serpents Sleep. Several are continuing on with the series. This is the fourth book in the Sebastian St. Cyr series, so if you want to read them in order, start with What Angels Fear.book review, book clubs
