Review: What Angels Fear by CS Harris

Sebastian St. Cyr is back from the Napoleonic wars and has resumed his life as Viscount Devlin.  A woman is found brutally murdered and he is accused.  He goes on the run determined to solve the vicious crime himself.  More violence follows and he gets a helper in a street kid name Tom.  The solution is dark.

The Title itself is from the famous quote:  Fools rush in, where angels fear to tread"  which I thought gave a lot of flavor to the story as well.

The female characters were layered as well and the complexity was refreshing.

I enjoyed this book.  There were a lot of plot twists and red herrings that were believable.  The author really brought the time period and setting to life for me.  Will definitely read more in the series.
