Summary

September 1817

Captain Gabriel Lacey travels with Lady Breckenridge to his boyhood home in northern Norfolk only to discover mysterious happenings in and around the Lacey estate. A young woman, cousin of an old friend, has gone missing, strange objects appear in Lacey's ruined house, and the dark windmills on the marshes keep pulling Lacey to them.

The underworld criminal, James Denis, uses Lacey's visit to Norfolk as an opportunity to have Lacey deliver a message to a local squire. A simple task - but one that lands Lacey squarely in international theft and murder. Lacey learns more about Denis's past, and finds himself joining forces with Denis to flush out a brutal killer and save the one person about whom Denis admits to caring.

Going home

This is not the best of the Lacey mysteries, but is moves the overall story forward. Lacey goes back to Norfolk to claim his family home, even if the house is a wreck and going back to Norfolk brings back painful memories from his past.

The story includes his friends and enemies from previous books, but it is not as interesting as some of the previous books.

The series gets better and better.

I hope Audible is able to record the 4 books which they have not yet done.

So Good

Consistent, suspenseful performance. Intriguing story with plenty of avenues. All the usual characters with some additional background.
If you like this series you will enjoy it.

character development gets better with every book!

Loved how the central theme of the story, developed from previous story lines, helped us learn, alongside Captain Lacey mysteries from his past.
