Why Kill the Innocent

In the newest mystery from the national bestselling author of Where the Dead Lie, a brutal murder draws Sebastian St. Cyr into the web of the royal court, where intrigue abounds and betrayal awaits.

London, 1814. As a cruel winter holds the city in its icy grip, the bloody body of a beautiful young musician is found half-buried in a snowdrift. Jane Ambrose's ties to Princess Charlotte, the only child of the Prince Regent and heir presumptive to the throne, panic the palace, which moves quickly to shut down any investigation into the death of the talented pianist. But Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin, and his wife Hero refuse to allow Jane's murderer to escape justice.

Untangling the secrets of Jane's world leads Sebastian into a maze of dangerous treachery where each player has his or her own unsavory agenda and no one can be trusted. As the Thames freezes over and the people of London pour onto the ice for a Frost Fair, Sebastian and Hero find their investigation circling back to the palace and building to a chilling crescendo of deceit and death.

My Review 

Why Kill the Innocent is an Instant winner! From the first page to the last page, I was hooked. I could not stop reading. I really felt like I had been transported back to the 1800's in London. Everything from the storyline to all the characters is what made this book such an enjoyable read for me. Besides Sebastian and his wife, Hero; the other characters did not just play minor roles in the story. Although, I must admit that I found Hero to be the stronger lead for me. Her voice resonated with me louder.

The whole story was great. I was trying to solve the mystery of the murder of Jane before Hero and Sebastian did but I was not able to. They work so well together. Not just because they are husband and wife but because they are both smart and pick up on different aspects of the same case. I can't wait to join Sebastian and Hero as they solve their next case.
