What Angels Fear by C.S. Harris

Book #1 in the Sebastian St. Cyr mysteries.

A fantastic novel of murder and intrigue. Filled with so many twists and turns that you never knew where you were going to end up or which mysterious character you'd meet up with next.

What Angels Fear had everything that should be expected in a historical mystery: chases, sword fighting, disguises and of course, murder.

Every suspect seemed to have something to hide and I was completely off in my conclusion. I did not see the end coming and the murderer was totally unexpected.

With a host of off-beat characters and a backdrop set in the beginning of the Regency, this looks to be a good start in what I hope is a great series of mystery novels.

Other books in the series:

When Gods Die (2006)
Why Mermaids Sing
Where Serpents Sleep
What Remains of Heaven
(Due out November 3rd)
