This was a good atory bit thw atory didn't end - unless you consider a cliff-hanger an end... hopefull this will continue in the next book.

The development of the subplots is confusing... how does Hero's mother's death change Jarvis? Will Tom take a greater role? What will happen to the surgeon? ( )

Devlin seeks the "gentleman" who raped, tortured and murdered a boy from the streets of London. He plumbs the sordid Darkside of the aristocracy of Regency England with growing horror at the level of depravity that exists. His pursuit of the boy's killer unravels a host of similar killings in the past as numerous bodies are uncovered during his search. He is supported in his work by Hero who seeks to expose, via her writings, the plight of the poor and downtrodden of the current class structure. ( )

This was not written as well as the other Sebastian St Cyr books. In this story, Hero and many of the other characters have minor roles as Sebastian races to find the man or men responsible for the terrible torture and murder of young, orphans. The police show little interest in searching for the missing poor and orphaned children. Sebastian narrows his search on two men, but due to their standing in society, Sebastian must have solid evidence. C S Harris rants about the evils of society and despicable treatment of the poor.

Where the Dead Lie - C.S.Harris
Audio performance by Davina Porter
4 stars

I’m not sure why I continue to enjoy this series. The murders are always so gruesome. In this installment, a large number of London’s street children have been disappearing. When Paul Gibson’s expert autopsies reveal that they have been tortured and raped before dying, Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin, endangers himself to defend the forgotten innocents.

And that’s why, why I continue to listen to these books; the righteous fight of good over evil. I enjoy the lives of the continuing characters. They fight their personal demons as well as their physical enemies. The historical settings are rich. I always learn something from these books. In this case I learned something about the Marquis de Sade and the political commentary buried in his disgusting text. I also continue to appreciate Harris’ interesting author’s notes and Davina Porter’s outstanding interpretation. I’m so glad their are more books to come. ( )

The plight of children left to fend for themselves on the streets really comes into focus in this book. While the mystery was compelling, the real emotional impact of this story is the realization of just how many vulnerable children there were in the England of this novel - and how many children are still just as vulnerable today. The personal stories of the main protagonists take more of a backseat in this installment, though there is some nice growth in Sebastian's relationship with his father. ( )
