***** Review of A Body in Berkley Square (Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries)

Ashley Gardner paints the scene perfectly in this Regency mystery which is one of a series. Her protagonist, Captain Lacey is appealing in his far from perfect life. Wounded in the Napoleonic wars, and born a gentleman, he has been brought down by circumstances, but still has his pride and despite everything that has unjustly happened to him, hasn't lost his humanity. He can be uncompromising to the point of recklessness when he's on the trail of a killer. But he's no fool. I like it that he likes women. And they like him. The mystery itself was convincing and held my interest to the end. I like Gardner's voice, she never puts a foot wrong.
