Bleeding Heart Square by Andrew Taylor

Bleeding Heart Square - Andrew Taylor

I don't usually read mysteries or crime novels, but this one really captured my attention. I got so deeply into the story, that I just had to keep reading until I finished it over the course of a few days. I like that it wasn't so heavy-handed and provided the reader with all sorts of information to piece together what had happened, and, even then, I didn't entirely see the ending coming. The book is really well-written and the historical details were really interesting.
