Coronation Day, 1902. The streets of London are filled with revelers who have turned out to celebrate the crowning of a new king. And the lovely Kate Sheridan and her dear husband, Charles - both dressed in their finest despite the dreary, damp weather - are pleased to be among them. Expatriate author Jack London is also watching the festivities - but with a more skeptical eye. He has come to London to write an expose of the East End slums - and the coronation has not tempered his disdain for the monarchy.
Unbeknownst to London, there are others in the crowd who share his contempt - and the day takes a sinister turn when an anarchist accidentally blows himself up with a bomb meant for the king. Charged with determining the true extent of the danger facing the Crown, Charles and Kate turn up a number of intriguing - and disturbing - questions. Was it simply a failed assassination attempt? Or could someone have deliberately killed the young anarchist? At every turn, the answers elude them.
And then there is the matter of the mysterious and beautiful Charlotte Conway, the editor of the anarchist newspaper where the dead man was employed. On the run from Scotland Yard, she takes refuge in Kate and Charles's home - and in Jack London's arms. All of which makes for a very interesting investigation indeed.

Robin Paige (Susan Wittig Albert and Bill Albert) re-create late Victorian / early Edwardian era in this historical mystery light series. This time Sheridan's investigation covers a great deal of heavy ground - perhaps a little too much for the reader's comfort. Nonetheless, a good entry in the series.

Randomly grabbed this and it was enjoyable. Didn't matter that I hadn't started at beginning of the series but I'm going to go back and start :)
