I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. Hi Olga. You hooked me with the words “Victorian mystery” even though the title did not. I’m certainly intrigued by your mindful review. Knowing about those quirks in advance helps me be accepting of the writer’s style. Without knowing that, I might be distracted and not enjoy the book as much. Excellent review, my friend. Hugs on the wing!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I was intrigued by the description and the cover, but I didn’t want to read it too long in advance of publication, to make sure people could get hold of it if they were interested. I was also translating a Victorian novel at the time, so it worked out well. Have a fabulous rest of the week and send my love to Crystal as well. ♥

    Another riveting review Olga. The book has all the elements I like – mystery, historical and page turning. Although, the Victorian era isn’t my fav, I’m still hopping over to the Zon to bookmark in my list. 🙂 x

    1. Thanks, Debby. The description sounded like a must-read to me, and it worked out well. As I was telling Teagan, I was translating a Victorian novel at the time, so it was a good way to keep my brain in the right era. Have a fantastic week!

        Oh, absolutely! 🙂 Thanks Olga. Happy week ahead! x

        1. 🙂

  3. Your review talked me right into giving this book a try!

    1. Thanks, Jacquie. It has a lot going for it. I hope you enjoy it. And have a great week!

  4. Thank you Olga.

    1. Thanks, Rosie. Another great discovery.

  5. I do like such investigations when the case cannot just be solved by some scientific advance in forensics. The time period and historical details make this one sound like something I want to read. It’s going on the wish-list, Olga. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I think you’ll enjoy the London setting as well. 🙂

  6. This really does sound fascinating, Olga. I am always interested in books about PTSD especially since my new book has a character suffering from this disorder as well as OCD.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I’m intrigued about your book already, Robbie. Psychiatry has come a long way from the era the book is set in, but mental health problems remain difficult to treat and misunderstood. I think you’d enjoy this book, Robbie, but I know there’s only so much time and so many books to read! Have a great weekend!

    Thank you, Olga! I think I will like the book.

    1. I think you will! I have an ARC copy of the second book in the series to read, and I hope to share the review soon. It looks good as well!
