Death was thought to be getting very uppish in 1740. Keyserling’s school-friend Biron ruled the country for three weeks, until a coup d’état sent him to do a stint of twenty-two years in Siberia; after that for quite a long time the Russians were too much occupied with their own affairs to trouble about the rest of Europe.

Good book. Am enjoying the series.

In Nancy Gotter Gate's latest mystery, spunky Tommi Poag, a woman adept at sniffing out trouble, appears once again. Though I've admired the two previous books in the Tommi Poag series, I proclaim this one the best.

Tee, Tommi's incredible cat, still remains the protagonist's closest companion but her ex-husband, though still a workaholic jerk, has softened up in Gate's latest. And the big surprise is that Tommi just might finally be falling for a man who deserves her.

Relying on Greensboro, North Carolina for the backdrop, Gates masterfully describes the homes, restaurants, and southern landscape found there. Most engrossing of all is the place where murder takes place--a reenactment of the Revolutionary War held at Price Park.

Though I've read several impressive histories of Cornwallis' losing battle in Greensboro (but one that assured victory for America later), I enjoyed even more getting my history Gates-style. Here you'll find history mixed in with a comtemporary murder. Before the book ends and avoiding excessive amounts of blood and guts, beguiling Tommi makes sense of it all.
