It's 1811, and the threat of revolution haunts the upper classes of King George III's England. Then a beautiful young woman is found savagely murdered on the altar steps of an ancient church near Westminster Abbey. A dueling pistol found at the scene and the damning testimony of a witness both point to one man-Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin, a brilliant young nobleman shattered by his experience in the Napoleonic Wars.

Where Angels Fear
This my second St. Cyr novel. Harris writes very well, historical details for the 1800s are accurate, and the dialect is very well done. I had to look up several interesting terms, which were new to me.
My first book was from later in the series. I picked it from my (real, not virtual) bookshelf recently and decided to see if this series was available. Delightfully, it is.
If you like historical mysteries, with an extremely well-done protagonist, this book and it's subsequent ones are for you.
The Author's note regarding Bithil Syndrome is icing on the cake as kudos for her research.
