With great expectations can come great disappointment. I'd throughly enjoyed the predecessors in this series and had had to wait nearly 3/4 of a year for my local library to get a copy,of this latest installment. When I saw how many pages it had I attacked it with relish only to find the last 300 pages and interminable bore and chore to get through. Honestly this was like The Book That Would Never End. ( )

Another hit Lady Sherlock novel from Sherry Thomas. She never disappoints.
This is book 5 in the Lady Sherlock series and while the author does a great job of bringing you up to speed, I highly recommend you start with book 1 and met all these fabulous characters from the beginning. I can assure you will be glad you did.
Inspector Treadles, Charlotte Holmes’s friend and collaborator, has been found locked in a room with two dead men, both of whom worked with his wife at the great manufacturing enterprise she has recently inherited.
Rumors fly. Had Inspector Treadles killed the men because they had opposed his wife’s initiatives at every turn? Had he killed in a fit of jealous rage, because he suspected Mrs. Treadles of harboring deeper feelings for one of the men? To make matters worse, he refuses to speak on his own behalf, despite the overwhelming evidence against him.
Charlotte finds herself in a case strewn with lies and secrets. But which lies are to cover up small sins, and which secrets would flay open a past better left forgotten? Not to mention, how can she concentrate on these murders, when Lord Ingram, her oldest friend and sometime lover, at last dangles before her the one thing she has always wanted?
This is a must read for fans of great historical mysteries. ( )

After Inspector Treadles is accused of murder, Charlotte Holmes sets out to uncover the truth.

I had mixed feelings about The Art of Theft but found this instalment very satisfying -- tense, atmospheric and intelligent. The presumably-wrongful arrest of Treadles means this investigation feels urgent and personal. I enjoyed piecing together an increasing understanding of the characters connected to the murder, especially Treadles’ wife Alice, who has recently inherited control of a family business.

Thomas is insightful about the issues and constraints faced by a variety of women in Victorian London. Weeks, it is those details which I remember most clearly, more so than whodunit. ( )

Although I would have been able to get more involved in the story if I had read the earlier books in the series, I still enjoyed this locked door mystery. Sherry Thomas has taken an interesting approach to Sherlock Homes. Sherlock Holmes is really Lady Sherlock. Lady Sherlock is an enigma as well. Inspector Treadles, holding a gun has been found in the same locked room as two dead men and has been arrested for murder. There are plenty of lies and secrets. Complicating the matter is the continuing romance between Lady Sherlock and Lord Ingram. As in all good mystery series, this one builds upon past books. The reader enjoys watching the characters develop and the relationships of characters move from book to book. ( )

Charlotte Holmes continues to pursue her profession of consulting detective, posing as assistant to her invalid, and entirely fictional, brother Sherlock.

She and several firends and allies have just returned from a trip to Europe and an act of grand theft to retrieve some priceless art which is exposing a friend of Mrs. Watson's to blackmail. They haven't been home long when Mrs. Treadles, wife of Inspector Treadles, a frequent collaborator of Charlotte's, arrives with a desperate plea for help.

Inspector Treadles has been found in a locked room with two dead men, holding the gun used to kill them. The two dead men, Mr. Longstead and Mr. Sullivan, worked with Mrs. Treadles at Cousins Manufacturing, a respected firm that Mrs. Cousins recently inherited from her brother, Barnaby Cousins. Barnaby was a lax manager, but Alice Treadles is determined to be active and responsible, and in different ways, these were the two men she worked most closely with. Was Inspector Treadles suspicious? Jealous?

With the Inspector refusing to talk even though he's the only obvious suspect, and Alice Treadles clearly withholding information, this is going to be a very tricky case.

Soon Charlotte, her dear friend Lord Ingram, Mrs. Watson, and her niece, Penelope Redmayne, are coaxing out detail, deciphering messages in small notices in the newspapers, questioning the guests at the party Mrs. Treadles, Mr. Longstead, and Mr. Sullivan had all been at the night of the murders. There's also the vital question of where Inspector Treadles really was in the two weeks before the deaths, because it's not where he told Mrs. Treadles he was.

Charlotte is also finding unlikely connections between Mr. Sullivan, Mrs. Sullivan, and Mr. Sulivan's mistress.

Even more interesting is, why don't any of the management of Cousins Manufacturing want Mrs. Treadles inquiring into the details of the company's books or recent renovations of the factories.

Meanwhile, Charlotte and Lord Ingram may, at last, be moving forward in their relationship, as Lord Ingram is freed from the obligations that have held him back.

This is a good mystery, but it's also quite satisfyingly honest about the constraints on women, even educated, well-off women, in a society that still clings closely to its gender-determined roles. Charlotte, for reasons recounted in previous books, is now shut out from respectable society. Mrs. Treadles is, not as shockingly as Charlotte, defying convention in excercising her right to run the business she inherited. The troubles between Inspector and Mrs. Treadles are a result of his dicomfort with her defiance of those conventional roles.

I found it interesting and satisfying.

Recommended.

I received a free electronic galley of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. ( )
