Book Review: The Peacock Throne


The Peacock Throne
by Lisa Karon Richadson

The Earl of Danbury has been murdered in his bed.  The same  night in a far shabbier part of London, Miss Lydia Garrett's guardian is stabbed and left for dead. Against all odds it transpires the murders are related-the fortunes of  the victims had become entangled decades earlier, when they spirited away the magnificent Indian Peacock Throne. Lydia is determined justice will be done, whilst the Earl's son Anthony is bent on revenge.  To draw out the murderer, they agree they must locate the Throne.
Meanwhile, Marcus Harting, agent of His Majesty's intelligence services, has received information suggesting Napoleon Bonaparte also seeks the Throne, for a sinister purpose. Harting, Anthony, and Lydia join forces to find the Throne before the French.  Their quest leads the around the glove on an adventure steeped in danger, treachery, and romance.
Lisa Karon Richardson is the author of several novels including Diamond in the RoughVanishing Act and Curtain Call.  Lisa, her husband and family live in Ohio.

My Thoughts - Historical novels are right up there on my favorite things to read along with romances (like The Painter's Daughter) The Peacock Throne isn't just any historical book, it also has a bit of mystery, suspense and of course a very fun adventure. If you like any or all of those type of books the Peacock Throne is a great read. It combines a few genres very well, for an all around good book.
