Before the journeys end a man has been found brutally murdered, and Rawlings is once again drawn into a complex and dangerous intrigue

John put his elbows on the table that separated the two men and said in a low voice, though there was nobody else to overhear a word, ‘But I have something which might be important to tell yo. And he proceeded to recount the conversation he had had with the driver and the guard of the London coach. Tobias listened in silence then replaced his spectacles on his nose.

John Rawlings, still gasping from his exertion, settled in his seat, removed his hat, and looked around him at his fellow . And who might I have the honour of addressing?’ ‘John Rawlings. I am an apothecary by trade. And you, Sir?’ ‘I teach the art of dance to folk young and old.

John Rawlings, still gasping from his exertion, settled in his seat, removed his hat, and looked around him at his fellow passengers. Immediately opposite him was sitting a very pretty dark young woman, who inclined her head graciously as John bowed to her. Next to her was a seedy looking individual, somewhat sad of appearance and giving the impression that he had fallen on hard times. But it was to the man in the corner of the coach that the Apothecary’s eyes were drawn and on him that they lingered.

I really enjoyed the latest John Rawlings mystery. John, his daughter Rose and his father are getting older, so this is a different John Rawlings from the earliest books. He still cannot give up his quest for adventure, and he has passed this characteristic down to little Rose. A stagecoach bound for Exeter and John's fellow passengers provide the backdrop for a murder. The tale keeps you rivited until the surprising end. I think this is Deryn Lake at her best.

I enjoyed this book. I have read the first and enjoyed them. I just wish we could get the others in the series.

This is the first Deryn Lake book I have read, and it will be the last. The mystery in the story is so contrived as to be unbelievable. Things happen that are never explained. At the end of a mystery, I think all of the pieces should fall into place, so that every unusual thing that happened is clear. That did not happen with this story. At the end, as I thought back over the story, I kept thinking of things that happened that were not explained. They seem to have happened because the author wished to fool the reader into not being able to figure out what is happening, or simply to advance the plot. This is not how a good mystery plot should be constructed. The plot should make sense at the end, and should give a few hints so that perhaps the reader can figure out the mystery. This write did not adhere to that, and that is why is was fairly disgusted with the story when I finished.

There is a romance part of the story, but it was not interesting to me. The entire book was way, way, way too long.

Sir John Fielding makes a brief appearance. Bruce Alexander wrote a series of mysteries featuring Sir John Fielding that is very good. If you are looking for a mystery series set in the same time period, with great characters and interesting mysteries, try that series. It is so much better than the drivel in Death and the Black Pyramid.

Agatha Christie wrote a story called "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd" with perhaps the greatest plot twist in all of murder mystery literature. At the end of the story, when you know who the murderer is, you can think back on the story and it all makes sense. Read that book to see how it should be done.
