I like Edward Marston's books. I started long ago with the Doomsday Book series then onto the Elizabethan theater and now I'm reading the Railway Detective, Home Front and the Christopher Redmayne series interspersed with other authors (like Laura Joh Rowland and Dan Brown).

Edward Marston is one of my favorite authors but my library doesn't carry all of his books. After reading the ones they do have, I have discovered a lot more at Amazon. I will reread some books and the Christopher Redmayne series will definitely be one. Marston brings his characters alive with all their good and bad characteristics. I love his sense of humor and will definitely be buying more.

Edward Marston is the pseudonym of Keith Miles, a fairly prolific and extremely good writer of mainly Elizabethan and medieval mysteries. He has also written mysteries under his own name with both sporting and golf backgrounds. However it is primarily the books that take place earlier in history that I am interested in. He read modern history at Oxford and has had many jobs, including university lecturer, but fortunately for all his readers, he turned to the writing profession.

After reading one of the author's books, I avidly sought out all the other books by Edward Marston and not a single one has ever disappointed me. They are about a period of history that I love. His Elizabethan theatre series of books were wonderful and he has continued them through from 1988 to 2006. The Domesday series is also a great series and this series of books featuring Christopher Redmayne is equally as good.

Christopher Redmayne, a young and talented architect is gaining a reputation, not only for his accomplishments in the designing of houses, a profession much in demand after the Great Fire of London, but with the assistance of his friend constable Jonathan Bales, a likeable man, but one with strong puritanical beliefs, he is also gaining a reputation as a solver of mysteries. In this story Christopher and Jonathan find themselves on the trail of a murderer, a repentant rake. Following their enquiries through the streets of London, they find not only corruption and intrigue, but also have to avoid attempts on their own lives, as they come closer to the truth.
