Thank you to Love Books Tours for giving me the chance to review A Disappointment of Owls by S E Smith
When the mutilated body of Albert Shawcross is found in the East End, the police head straight to Fournier street to the last person who saw him alive – Symington, Earl ByrdHorrified at the presumption of guilt, Symington vows to track down the real killer. With the help of the pawnbroker’s niece, Emily, he’s drawn into an increasing dangerous world, where not everyone wants him to succeed.With enemies using violent tactics to persuade him to drop the case, the earl must make a difficult decision. Does the shady solicitor deserve justice, or did he deserve to die?
This is the third installment in what is turning out to be a fantastic series.
It was another book with some wonderful characters, Sym and Emily are just perfect and I enjoyed seeing their relationship develop. There were plenty of twists and turns that left you wondering who the killer was.
I have absolutely loved reading these books and can’t wait to see what else S E Smith brings out.
