After Dr. Hunter is implicated in a murder, Dr. Silkstone must learn to what depths his rival would go in the name of science.

    I’ve read the first three of these books and enjoyed them. They got better as the series went along. I gave book 3 a 4-star rating in my personal log book. If you like period mysteries, you might like these. When I say I read them, I mean I listened to the audio books. I think it helps that they are well performed by the talented Simon Vance .
