Who Are You?
I find that questions like this can be a lot of fun, providing people actually participate. I'm risking having resounding silence on this post, but what's the old saying... nothing ventured, nothing gained?
Although I could have a lot of fun with one of the books I'm currently reading, I am interpreting this question to mean the last book I actually finished. This one is fun, too. (As long as I don't eat anything.)
Who am I? I am Captain William Avery. It's London in 1842, and those in charge of the Reform Club have insisted that I investigate a rash of poisonings that have befallen their membership.
I have a wife who's working my last nerve. I have an infant son whom I adore, and the person who really should be investigating this mess is Jeremiah Blake, but he's experiencing some difficulties of his own at the moment.
I'm getting to know London's first celebrity chef, Alexis Soyer, and being schooled in how the kitchen in such an establishment is run. I'm eating fine food, watching my suspect list grow longer and longer... and hoping no one else falls victim to the poisoner before I can identify the person. All in M.J. Carter's third Blake and Avery mystery, The Devil's Feast!
Now it's your turn! Who are YOU? (Don't worry, I'm not looking for anything other than book title, author, and character!)
