I'm extremely pleased with it, especially this bit:
This is period fiction of the best kind: accurate in its details; staying within its appropriate time; even managing to teach us a bit about the society’s norms. And on top of that, you get a rousing good mystery that keeps you thinking until the end. More, please, from Mr. Morris. —Mark Rose
Okay, Mark, I'm working on it! On which note, back to the edit.
