C.S Harris is the author of the Sebastian St. Cyr regency mystery series featuring Sebastian, Viscount Devlin, an aristocrat who solves crimes in Recency London.
The author has a knack of bringing that particular era to life in her descriptions in each book. Especially the seedier, darker and more dangerous parts of the city where crime is perpetually at home, is extremely well depicted in that you feel as if you’ve actually there, looking at the area with your own eyes.
The latest book in the series, Where the Dead Lie, has been just published in April 2017, but if you are new to the series, I urge you to start with the first book, What Angels Fear. To really get the time period, Sebastian, his relationship with Hero and his friends, you can only really appreciate it if you start from the beginning of the series.
Having said that, here are the C.S. Harris books in order for her wonderful historical mystery series, which I adore, as well as the Jax Alexander thriller series she co-authored with her husband under the pen name C.S. Graham.
