Review: Diamonds and Dust by Carol Hedges

‘Diamonds and Dust’

Set in London in the 1860s, ‘Diamonds and Dust’ is detective fiction with a supernatural twist, and I found it a highly entertaining and very enjoyable read on my Kindle. The author combines a light, humorous touch and strong descriptive powers with excellent research which does not ‘shout’ at you out of the page – does not self-consciously set out to overawe the reader with the writer’s knowledge. Overall it is not quite a five-star read for me, but it is so close that I can’t honestly give it less.
