A Fun Mystery


A Fatal Likeness is the second mystery with detective, Charles Maddox. It is a follow-up, though not sequel to, The Solitary House. In A Fatal Likeness, Maddox is called in to investigate a blackmail plot targeting the son of Percy Bysshe Shelley. 

Taking very liberal creative license with the lives of the poet and Mary Shelley, Shepherd weaves a convincing mystery while maintaining the linguistic feel of the time period. This is a fun mystery, but one may want to read The Solitary House first for some background on the character of Maddox. And avid fans of Shelley may want to read this novel with a hearty grain of salt. Still, an enjoyable read for historical mystery readers, like me.
