Mute Witness is Charles O'Brien's first historical mystery and well worth the read. Set in 1785-86 France, he has come up with viable characters and very believable situations and scenery. We have another strong heroine with strong supporting friends to help her discover the ends and outs of the strange death of her father.
I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series and I have discovered that there are about 8 or 9 all together.
Mr. O'Brien won a couple of awards for this first novel, so if he can continue to write the next ones at the same good pace and continuity of the story we will all be able to escape to France for some interesting adventures.
