The grisly murder of a West Indies slave owner and the reappearance of a dangerous enemy from Sebastian St. Cyr’s past put C. S. Harris’s “troubled but compelling antihero”* to the ultimate test in this taut, thrilling entrée in the acclaimed, national bestselling historical mystery series.   London, 1813. The decapitation of a wealthy plantation owner at Bloody Bridge draws Sebastian St. Cyr into a macabre and perilous investigation. The discovery near the body of a lead coffin strap bearing the inscription KING CHARLES, 1648 suggests a link between this killing and the beheading of the seventeenth-century monarch. Equally troubling, the victim’s kinship to the current Home Secretary draws the notice of Sebastian’s father-in-law, Lord Jarvis, who will exploit any means to pursue his own clandestine ends.   Working with his wife, Hero, Sebastian amasses a list of suspects who range from an eccentric curiosity collector to the brother of a brilliantly observant spinster named Jane Austen.   But as one murder follows another, it is the connection between the victims and ruthless former army officer Lord Oliphant that raises the stakes. Once, Oliphant nearly destroyed Sebastian in a horrific act of betrayal. Now he poses a threat not only to Sebastian but to everything—and everyone—Sebastian holds dear.

5.0 Who Buries the Dead
Well I'm very partial to Sebastian so I may not be the best reviewer because any book with him it I'm going to give 5 stars! He is just hot, hot, hot & I was born in the totally wrong era! Why can't our men still wear breeches, top hats, chapeaux bras and walking sticks?! Anyways, so now I'm dissapo...

It took me forever to read this. I started it and put it down, picked it up again and then put it down... you get the drift. I finally finished it and realize why I had a hard time staying engaged. It felt like treading water. Three main things happen in this book: - There is a central mystery...

I am so happy this fine Regency mystery series continues to produce first rate reading. One of the great fears suffered by dedicated readers is that a beloved series will run out of steam.
