Lord Palmerston, like all politicians primarily concerned with retaining power, micro-manages the situation, driving both Scotland Yard men and the deQincy's into the murderer's grasp. Written with a deep bow to the style of mid 19thC novels, the tale is satisfying on every level. It's a 4, with noirish touches that you'll find chilling and entertaining.
