Simply amazing, 31 Bond Street by Ellen Horan is well researched, well written, craftly developed and most enjoyable.
The setting is magnificently conveyed. The soot and grime of the expanding New York is a great backdrop to the horrific tales unfolding before the reader's eyes.
The characters are so real and poignant that they seem to jump out of the pages. I particularly like the love story between the defense lawyer, Henry Clinton, and his beautiful wife, Elisabeth. Their deep relationship and true partnership is the one bright spot that warms your heart amidst the darkness of the evils portrayed in this book.
I so appreciate this book that I highly recommend it to all crime and legal thriller fans!
