Review: The Song of a Dark Angel

The Song of a Dark AngelThe Song of a Dark Angel by Paul Doherty
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another thoroughly enjoyable book in the ongoing Hugh Corbett mystery series, with the eponymous hero travelling to Norfolk to deal with murder and intrigue. Accompanied by his two servants, our hero encounters an increasing number of complex relationships in the local village which, in the end, come to a surprising resolution.

Again drawing on some historical facts, Paul Doherty creates a masterful narrative that is historically believable and thoroughly engrossing. The more I read of this series, the more I come to appreciate the skill he has in weaving historicity and good storytelling into the pages of his novels.

A wonderful story, well written and engaging, that is worthy of attention.
