Review: The Thames River Murders by Ashley Gardner

Captain Lacy is happily married with a baby on the way, he lives in a nice home and always has money to spare, and his relationship with his estranged daughter grows stronger everyday. He wants for nothing now, and yet he still seeks the excitement and justice of amateur crime solving in early 19th century London. His latest sleuthing adventure takes us to the Thames River where a young woman's body was found years ago and the Thames River Police are still looking for her identity and killer, turning to Lacy for help in solving this cold case.

Meanwhile, Lacy is receiving threats and accusations of identity theft from an anonymous letter writer and he desperately attempts to keep his new family safe. He also gains a new ally with an interesting back story while visiting the infamous Mr. Denis.

I think what I love most about this series is the many sub-plots, the witty dialogue, and the continually evolving character development. It never goes stale, the relationships between characters are always growing and evolving, and the mystery always keeps you guessing.

The only downside is that each book is such a fun and quick read, I blow through it and then have to wait ages for the next book to be written and released. I should just be grateful that the author is really writing the series but dammit, I want more of Captain Lacy!
