A DEAD MAN IN MALTA
This series is set pre-WW I and features Scotland Yard’s Sandor Seymour, who was reared by immigrant parents in working-class London and now works with Special Branch. As with all of Pearce’s books, humor and a mystery are well used. Additionally he brings the atmosphere and background of the countries where the mysteries are set to life. Multiple viewpoints and conversations with overlapping dialogue add to the fun.
