Devoured by D E Meredith. Read April 2013.

I’ve just returned from spending a few days in the mid 19th century in the company of some fascinating characters and a cleverly constructed plot. I have to confess that until a few weeks ago I was unaware of D E Meredith and her work. I was lucky enough to win a signed copy of The Devil’s Ribbon and was keen to read it, so I consulted and found that the author’s previous novel was Devoured. Ignoring an assurance from the author herself on Twitter that her novels can be read in any order (thank you!) I purchased Devoured for my newly acquired Kindle app in iPad. Despite the incongruity of reading about Victorian London using the latest technology, and once I had stopped trying to catch out the author in any anachronisms, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to any crime fiction fans. My usual book choices are modern day, psychological thriller, serial killer type but I enjoyed the change and look forward to following up with The Devil’s Ribbon soon. Thank you to “Crime Fiction Lover” @crifilover for the Facebook competition that introduced me to D E Meredith.
Highly recommended.
