A Lesson in Chemistry
In 1887 London,” forensics” is a new science being used to fight crime.  Archibald Bruce is the Director of the Crime Laboratory for the Criminal Investigations Division of Scotland Yard whose typical day is spent collecting and testing evidence, dealing with explosives and creating new devices.  In his spare time he is a Professor of Chemistry at the university where he meets Fiona Rose.  Archie finds love, rescues Agent Phineas Gunn and becomes entangled in a mission to stop an arms dealer from supplying weapons and explosives to anarchist factions throughout Europe and the Americas.  Readers familiar with the Gentlemen of Scotland Yard series will be familiar with Archie who is an important character, but not one of the major characters.  I am glad to learn more about him and hope that he becomes the focus of a future novel.  The titles in the series are:  “An Affair with Mr. Kennedy” bk 1, “A Dangerous Liaison with Detective Lewis” bk 2 and “A Private Duel with Agent Gunn” bk 3.  This exclusive Kindle eBook is available on our circulating Paperwhite Kindle.
