The Barker and Llewelyn historical mystery series is an absolute delight. The mysteries always contain surprises. The cast of characters has depth both in number and in personality. I've been jumping around reading books in this series as I come across them and have never been disappointed.

Even among other titles in the series, Death and Glory, set in 1890s London, stands out because of its audacity. The plot is built around a group of US ex-pats, all former Confederates, come to England to demand the handover of a warship purportedly paid for by the Confederacy early on in the Civil War and never delivered. The premise may sound more like historical fantasy than historical mystery, but Will Thomas makes this hard-to-believe premise into a solid read.

Before Barker and Llewelyn know the Confederates goal, they're hired to help secure a meeting with the Prime Minister. This is something Barker and Llewelyn manage—and they are every bit as shocked as the P.M. when they realize what the group is demanding.

What follows is a complex web of Barker and Llewelyn trailing the Confederates as the Confederates trail the two detectives. Questions of identity arise. Are the Confederates who they claim to be or are the other historical figures, supposedly dead, who have taken on new identities?

If you enjoy substantial historical mysteries this is a series you shouldn't miss—and it's a series you don't necessarily have to read in order.

I received a free electronic review copy of this title from the publisher via Edelweiss; the opinions are my own.

Enquiry agents Barker and Llewelyn are hired to find a missing husband who volunteers at the British Museum cataloging mummies. Shortly there after the husband is pulled from Limestone Reach having been stabbed. The mummy he was cataloging before his death just may be that of Cleopatra. There is also the matter of a large ruby that was found inside the mummy. What was just thought to be a simple case of finding a missing husband and suddenly turned into a dangerous investigation. Can the two enquiry agents get to the truth before someone else is killed?… (mais)

A Confederate Challenge, 1894!

Detectives Cyrus Barker and Thomas Llewelyn have their hands full with the surfacing of a thirty year old document, a Treaty, testifying that Britain sold an iron warship to the Confederacy during the war between the North and the South.
Barker and Llewelyn find themselves ensconced in International politics. If the Treaty is legitimate, the British Government is in an unenviable position.
Survivors, ex- soldiers, have been plotting for decades to fund a war from the countries they had escaped to—Mexico, Cuba, Brazil and Columbia. The war of Northern Aggression will be redefined and the Confederacy restored.
Now they are raising money and marching on towards their goal of taking the warship which they will use as a model to build more cheaply in the countries they now reside in. An amarda of iron ships will rise and threaten the newly established United States order.
(Thomas’s research is amazing!)
We have armed insurgents hiding out in London, a group of well heeled southern gentleman pursuing ownership of the ship, a train robbery, and other measures of skullduggery. Complicit wealthy merchants and members of the ton are raising money for the cause at a by “invitation only” Ball. The Prime Minister and the shadowy parts of the government are worried! The PM has obtained the services of the partners.
Cyrus and Llewelyn have there work cut out trying to make head or tail of this politically charged investigation.
