Death Takes A Lover (DS Billings Victorian Mysteries Book 1)

Death Takes A Lover (DS Billings Victorian Mysteries Book 1) - Olivier Bosman A short, but captivating introduction to the DS Billings Victorian Mysteries.
The murder of a handsome rich young man, an old gloomy house in the Yorkshire Moors, and a gay, Quaker detective with a morphine addiction - what could possibly go wrong? Due to the short lenght, some of the characterisation has to be read between the lines, but that's easily done here. Bosman has a way to write dialogue that makes his characters come to life, although you don't know all that much about them.
Very good line-editing and a kick-ass cover, too. I'm impressed.
