I did not enjoy this book. The protagonist is an arrogant fop with, seemingly, no back story. He had a Dr. Watson tag along for a sounding board but it was such an obvious gimmick. We have no idea why Kempston Hardwick acts as he does. Was all this revealed in a previous work? It was stiff and bloodless to me. Sorry, no recommendation on this one.

This is a wonderful book

Stopped reading about 15% into book. I still had no idea what's the story about. Disappointing to say the least.

Not what I expected at all.

It was so bad I stopped reading it
I did like the book and it was interesting but it is not a real page turner if that is what you are looking for. I do think most people would enjoy the read though.
