I’ve had another go at this blurb, in response to some comments – what do you think?
“In this new mystery, Constable Sam Plank’s financial curiosity is once again awakened as he struggles to find the link between a suicide, an embezzler, an arsonist and a thief. No corner of Regency London is untouched by these crimes, as he travels from the aristocratic mansions of St James Park back to his own boyhood haunts among the dank alleyways of Wapping. But with his steadfast wife becoming involved in his investigations, and a keen young police officer under his command, is Sam leading them all into a confrontation with something far more ruthless and brutal – and familiar – than even he realises?”
I thought I would also add some reviews, like you see on the back cover of paperbacks, so how about these (of course I don’t have any reviews of “The Man in the Canary Waistcoat”, so I have chosen general ones from “Fatal Forgery” – or is the second one damning with faint praise?):
“The Regency period is brought vividly to live through picturesque descriptions and believable dialogue; I could almost hear and smell London.” (The Kindle Book Review)
“Susan Grossey weaves a tale of mystery and suspense through what could be a very dry subject.” (Historical Novel Society)
