After Byron

We rated this book:


After Byron is a historical fiction novel based in England in the early-to mid-1830s. The book centers Gerald Marston, who takes a job in a London detective agency as the replacement of a detective. The previous detective vanished while reporting on activities of Lord Ingersoll. Ingersoll, along with other characters in the book, are suspects in the death of Lady Ingersoll. The connection with Lord Byron: Lord Ingersoll was a close friend of the late poet Byron.

While this book was a piece of historical fiction, it was also a decent whodunit type of mystery. My reason for giving it two stars is that the plot develops from a series of diary and journal entries, which was creative. In these entries, conversations are taking place, which I found a little confusing, because the headings of each chapter was one of the characters diary or journal entry.

While this novel wasn’t written as a play, I think the plot would have been easier to follow if it had been written as such.
