9780747262565: The Amorous Nightingale (Restoration Mysteries #2)

Acclaimed beauty and singer Harriet Gow has earned a position envied by every available women of the Restoration period: she is the King's favourite mistress. After seeing her perform, Christopher Redmayne is also captivated. The impression Harriet made is still lingering in his mind when he is summoned urgently by the Charles II. Harriet has been kidnapped, and Redmayne, with the help of his friend Jonathan Bale - a Puritan constable - is engaged to resolve this delicate affair. The facade of elegance and gentility soon begins to crumble in the face of their investigations. Harriet is, indeed, an amorous nightingale; the fabric of her life entangled in jealousy, avarice and lust. Just as Redmayne and Bale start to question whether she is really the victim or the guilty party a brutal murder provides the answer...

About the Author:

Edward Marston was born and brought up in South Wales and educated at Oxford University.

Review:

Set against the backdrop of London post 1666, The Amorous Nightingale invokes all the licentiousness and dissipation so often associated with the period. Fops and fools jostle with Puritans and thinking men and the newly restored theatres are a hotbed of sin and frivolity. Redmayne and Bale are an unlikely pairing, but their friendship, trust and differing outlooks form the bedrock for this enjoyable Restoration romp. (Historical Novels Review)
