The book is indeed what the cover says: a cosy crime.
I liked the main subjects very much and I will certainly read her two earlier books.
I had won and read the first book in this series and enjoyed it so I was looking forward to this one. Was not disappointed. Thoroughly researched this historical mystery offers engaging characters both real and imaginary and is a very entertaining read. Fast paced and suspenseful, this was a lot of fun and I would recommend as well as read more in this series.
I received a copy of this book from the LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

In 1870 London, the body of a postal clerk is found inside a pneumatic railway car, and surgeon Samson Light has been accused. Tommy Jones must abandon his many jobs to pursue the witness who can exonerate his former tutor. Inspector Morgan of St Giles Station seems unusually reluctant to pursue the case, so Samson's barrister, wife, and friends must investigate. Clues lead to the General Post Office, the London Pneumatic Despatch Company, the highest realms of the Foreign Office, and inside Clerkenwell Gaol itself. Why was an ordinary clerk killed and, if it wasn't Samson who did it, who did?

I liked this book, and learned a lot about the pneumatic Railway in England. Reading this book prompted me to go to Wikipedia in order to learn more. To me, that is a good sign. But it is also a bad sign that the author did not provide enough information about pneumatics to inform me, the reader.
The basic story that revolved around the railway was basically kind of thin. The characters were not developed very well. I seemed to know as much about Sally, the child, as I did about Tommy Jones. The book was choppy and did not transition easily from one subject to another.
But what I was most disappointed with was finding out at the end that this book was the third book in a trilogy. I could tell while reading that this book would make a good trilogy, but I thought this would've been the first book, not the last. Not for me. But it was an okay cozy mystery, if you like that sort of thing. ( )
