Fantastic

Really enjoyed this, especially the setting, the story between Olivia and Edward, and the mystery (it kept me guessing until the end.) Have recommended it to others.

A great read

A superb plot, well written and brilliantly narrated with a shocking insight into the days of the empire. I couldn't put it down - I will miss it.
