European history and now lives in Louisiana Ms Harris writes well and precisely delves into great detail It s not a necessity, but it sure would help to know a bit about Hanoverian England to appreciate her St Cyr novels Who Slays the Wicked is set in 1814, a time in which the Napoleonic wars are sputtering to a conclusion George III is on the throne the same sovereign who lost the American colonies and his sanity His son, the future George IV, is serving as regent however, as George III went hopelessly insane in 1811 When Napoleon was defeated for good in 1815, a European wide peace conference redrew the map of Europe The same conference planted the seeds for the decline of aristocracy, but those didn t blossom until the end of World War I in 1918 For another hundred years, nobility lived according to different customs and social codes than their subjects If you ve read other Harris novels, you know that proper breeding sometimes allowed one literally to get away with murder Not this time St Cyr is called upon to unravel the gruesome death of Lord Ashworth and he s keen to solve it as among the prime suspects is Ashworth s wife Stephanie, who is also St Cyr s niece Stephanie has recently given birth to twins, but she detested her late husband As it transpires, so did virtually everyone who ever set eyes on Ashworth except his aged father As was often the case with children of noble blood, the sadistic Ashworth treated women and the hoi polloi as if they were there for his amusement and abuse He sexually abused Stephanie, as he did also to a string of mistresses, prostitutes, and gullible innocents He cheated numerous merchants, one of whom is also a hot suspect, and Ashworth was also abusive to architect Russell Firth That s very bad news, as rumors hold that Firth has been stepping out with Stephanie The St Cyr digs into matters, the longer the suspect list grows The phrase St Cyr, his fearless wife Hero, and magistrate Sir Henry Lovejoy repeatedly hear is, I m glad he s dead St Cyr, like much of London, is certain that Ashworth is the culprit behind the deaths of numerous street children The wildcard suspects are in London by way of Moscow All of Europe knows that the Prince Regent and his wife, Caroline of Brunswick, had been separated for than a decade They had just one child, Princess Charlotte, which makes her a desirable marriage catch Charlotte is affianced to the heir to the Dutch throne, but the czar of Russia hopes to break that alliance and perhaps even entice the Prince Regent to divorce and marry his sister Harris introduces a fictional character, Ivanna Gagarin, as the consort to the Russian Grand Duchess She is beautiful, calculating, amoral, and perhaps deadly, though the entire Russian entourage in London had enough contacts with Ashworth to make all of them suspect The fact that Buckingham Palace tells St Cyr to back off elevates St Cyr s suspicion level Harris juxtaposes court intrigue with the grit, dirt, and crushing poverty of working class London She takes us inside seedy pubs and down dark and dangerous alleyways, and introduces us to the stomach churning world of the night soil men who clean privies, rag and bone collectors, and pure finders, the latter of whom roam the street and collect excrement to sell to tanneries It s also a world in which ragamuffin children sweep streets, deliver messages, and run errands for anyone who will throw them a few coppers You can be excused if you conclude that the residents of squalid London have less dirt on their hands than the upper crust Harris subtly suggests that better times are ahead for some of the down market parts of London Firth is modeled on developer James Burton, who financed the building of Regent s Park, Bloomsbury Square, and numerous other great Georgian projects Harris throws us enough red herrings to make fish stew, but if you re not a historian or already immersed in the St Cyr universe, you might find parts of the novel rather slow going until you catch onto who s who It might help to make a cheat sheet as you read You will need to know, for example, that Lord Ashworth is Anthony Ledger and that St Cyr is also the Viscount Devlin All of the aristocratic characters have both a titled and a christened name, and which one you encounter depends upon with whom that character is interacting This stuff even confuses Brits friends of mine in London frequently say some lord or other and it can be quite a puzzlement for those not used to it I am used to it and ultimately found the central mystery intriguing, but I confess that I am prone to place nobility into the upper class twit category This is to say I found the novel much interesting when Sebastian and Hero St Cyr were cavorting with marginal folks rather than having tea with toffs I leave open the possibility that I came into the series too late in the game I enjoyed Who Slays the Wicked, but I m not holding my breath for the next St Cyr installment Rob Weir I used the term sputtering because it took separate campaigns to subdue Napoleon In 1814, Napoleon abdicated when a European alliance captured Paris He was exiled to the island of Elba, but escaped less than a year later, raised an army, and invaded Belgium Shortly after his defeat at Waterloo in June 1815, he surrendered and was sent to the remote island of St Helena, where he died in 1821 In real life, Russian meddling did break Charlotte s planned marriage, though she eventually married a German prince, not a Russian flag Like see review Dec

appearance in Who Slays the Wicked I ve been following this series forever, and in addition to the mysteries, I usually learn something about the time period as well.When Lord Ashworth is found viciously murdered, there is little sympathy to be found The handsome, debauched young man had earned a reputation for debased behavior, and the only one who appears to mourn his death is his father.Sebastian, however, understands that what is generally known about the young man s behavior is only the tip of the iceberg Although he was never able to connect him to the crimes in a previous case, he has no doubt that Ashworth was involved Evidence from the bloody crime scene suggests that the killer was a woman, and Sebastian fears that perhaps his niece, who is married to Ashworth, may be the culprit But Stephanie is only one possibility Sebastian and Bowstreet magistrate Sir Henry Lovejoy have a number of suspects after all, Ashworth had plenty of enemies Then Ashworth s valet is found stabbed to death in an alley, a street crossing boy disappears, a young prostitute is murdered, and Ashworth s long time friend murdered As despicable as Ashworth was, Sebastian needs to find his killer, if only to prevent an innocent person from being held to account.Hero, Sebastian s wife, plays only a small role, but it is Hero who reveals most of the historic details from the period Hero is a social activist and is writing an article about the pure finders, rag and bone men, and night soil collectors Rag and Bone Men These bone grubbers, as they were sometimes known, would typically spend nine or ten hours searching the streets of London for anything of value, before returning to their lodgings to sort whatever they had found 5 source 2 PURE FINDERDespite the clean sounding name, this job actually involved collecting dog feces from the streets of London to sell to tanners, who used it in the leather making process Dog poop was known as pure because it was used to purify the leather and make it flexible PDF source Ten worst jobs in Victorian Era 18th century London nightman s calling cardNight soil is a historically used euphemism for human excreta collected from cesspools, privies, pail closets, pit latrines, privy middens, septic tanks, etc This material was removed from the immediate area, usually at night, by workers employed in this trade Sometimes it could be transported out of towns and sold on as a fertilizer source Hero s interviews with those who survive by performing these jobs gives a much human touch than simply reading the factual
