    1. A very thrilling historical mystery.This one starts slowly, like a straightforward whodunnit, but quickly evolves in something much more complex and fascinating. Set in London during World War I, we have soldiers, street gangs, prostitution rings and much, much more, and it all works together well to create an intricate mystery. There is a progressive police inspector who decides to put together a team of individuals to help solve his case, including a female lawyer and doctor which was unheard [...]

    2. "Very few of us are what we seem." (Agatha Christie)As World War I enters with heavy marching boots into the lives of 1915 London, nary a soul will be untouched by the weight of its presence. Men from all walks of life are uniformed and sent to fight the good fight in France and beyond. It is a time of mixed emotions, questionable identities, and the shifting of roles in society.Because of the lack of males in the homes and businesses, women step forward to fulfill their obligations. You can alm [...]

    3. This crime historical fiction set in 1915 during WW1 in London by Lynn Brittney was a real pleasure to read. It begins with the murder of Lord Murcheson, stabbed with a pair of scissors in Belgravia. Chief Inspector Beech is investigating but feels he needs more support than the Met can currently provide under Commissioner Sir Edward Henry. He takes the opportunity to ask for a special task force that will help to solve the case. Women have no place in the police is the current thinking, Beech w [...]

    4. Thank you to NetGalley and Mirror Books for a digital galley of this novel.There are quite a few things I liked about this novel. The writing was well done and the plot premise was different from any mystery I've read. There are quite a few characters, with more being added almost all the way through the book, and they were each given enough attention that I was left with an understanding of their character to a larger degree than is usual. The premise for this story is quite clever and the auth [...]

    5. This review can also be found on my blogGrimdark cozy-mysteries are apparently a thing now. Often cozies are rather clean: the victim wasn’t a good person anyway. The only bad things that ever happened were because of the victim (and possibly the killer). Once the murderer is caught everything is fine again. Or at the very least the (well-adjusted) sleuth has figured out the perfect way to help a way to help the person who is still suffering. (To be clear: I don’t mind that. We all need a bi [...]

    6. This novel is set in London in 1915 during the first world war. The war has taken all the able-bodied men and women have assumed a new and more prominent role in the workforce. Also the war has physically and mentally unbalanced many of the returning soldiers all resulting in more crimes against women and more crimes involving women. Chief Inspector Peter Beech approaches his superiors with the need for female police officers who can more readily deal with these women victims. The morality of th [...]

    7. Murder in Belgravia by Lynn Brittney is set in London during WWI, a time period of great interest for many reasons. The Great War was in progress and the social landscape was changing: drugs like cocaine and heroin were available at the local pharmacy; the male population was depleted as men enlisted or were conscripted; the zeppelin raids in 1915; women were needed in areas other than domestic service and were working in factories, wearing trousers, cutting their hair, and learning to drive; su [...]

    8. Originally published on my blog: Nonstop Reader.Murder in Belgravia is the first book in what promises to be a continuing series. Set in WWI London, this is a semi-cozy with an ensemble cast. Despite having a relatively large cast of characters, the author does a good job of writing clearly and concisely and there isn't any confusion about what is happening to whom.What begins as a seemingly straightforward case of murder by self defense turns out to be anything but. I would normally call this a [...]

    9. "Murder in Belgravia" is a mystery set in 1915 in London. Chief Inspector Peter Beech is confronted with a suspect who refuses to see a male doctor for her life-threatening injuries or to talk to a male policeman about the murder of her husband. Happily, he's good friends with a woman doctor and with a high-born woman who trained as a lawyer. They help him with the suspect but doubt she killed her husband even though she confesses to it. But who is she protecting?Beech gets permission to form a [...]

    10. Fascinating insights into life on the Home Front in Britain during WW1 are to be had in this, the first in a projected series of historical mystery novels. It is set in London in 1915 and features a unique group of people brought together by Chief Inspector Peter Beech to investigate the killing of Lord Murcheson,Included in the group are Dr Caroline Allardyce, Constable Billy Rigsby, Arthur Tollman, formerly of the Special Branch, and the Hon. Victoria Ellingham.The investigation brings them in [...]

    11. A light-weight murder mystery novel that is well suited for a holiday read.Whilst the interactions between the “upper” and “lower” classes were handled more deftly by Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers, Lynn Brittney has also incorporated the rapidly changing social mores brought about by World War I and delved quite deeply into the darker side of society, something that Christie and Sayers didn’t address.Unfortunately most of Brittney’s characters are two-dimensional with only Arthu [...]

    12. Murder in Belgravia was an engaging, smart and satisfying post WW1 period mystery. There is a rich cast of characters and lots of period detail regarding women's employment and social stratification without any trace of tedium.So often in light mysteries it feels like the author periodically inserts paragraphs (or pages) from to add authenticity or period detail---there was none of this here. The characters rang true and post-war London felt seedy in the right places and bursting with promise i [...]

    13. Lynn Britney writes a historically rich, if sometimes gory, mystery set in London during the Great War. Her characters are an interesting team of detectives, including professionals, and a couple of amateurs, a highly unusual mixed gender setup predating the presence of women in London’s police force. I look forward to more "Mayfair 100” stories.

    14. I loved the characters in this book. Some of the scenes seemed to be added just for the historical factor and didn't feel necessary. However, I loved the plot, the development of the case, and the attention to the details of the time period. Hopefully there will be a series.

    15. This is the first book in a new series and it is a real treat. I love British cozies. This is more dark and intense than a usual cozy and it is a very good book.Detective Inspector Peter Beech has been called to a murder scene. The victim is a member of the upper class. The confessed murderer is his wife. But, things are not as they seem.The lady will not speak to a man about her situation. But, before she can speak to anyone she must be whisked to the hospital. She has been so seriously injured [...]
