The lost boys of London is a historical mystery set in Tudor England. The story is about Bianca Goddard and her mystery adventure in attempts to find a missing boy in her town. She leads a lonely life. Her husband, John Grunt, is not present as much since he is a soldier in Henry’s war. Bianca has also lost a baby and so really needs a distraction from her life. The death of a few hung people and a particular scarf around their neck causes suspicion and questions in her mind, and that is when the story takes off.
Bianca’s profession being a herbalist and her background, being the daughter of an alchemist and a witch, helps her in discovering and examining the evidence for solving the murder mystery. I enjoyed this character as her personality was determined and strong. I particularly appreciated the literature being descriptive and keeping to its storyline rather than confusing us with sideline stories.
The nature of the work keeps you engaged and wanting, which is a skill the author possessed. There were moments where you would really feel for the person and find yourself attached to the character, which was pleasant.
I would recommend this story to anyone who likes to read suspense and mystery thrillers.Tweet
