    1. This is the second short story starring the Regency Detective Stephen Lavander and his sidekick Constable Woods.This is a lovely short story to escape for an afternoon into a world without high tech and stress.It is impressive how Karen Charlton integrate real persons and events in the story.Regency London, police procedurals of the time and how to cope with daily life comes a alive in this entertaining story.Do not forget to read the quite informative Author's Note at the end of the book.

    2. A curious dwarf narrowly misses a trampling and an officer chases him, purple-faced and out of breath. Officer Townsend cannot see the rogue through the teeming thoroughfares of London unless he can elicit the help of a fellow Bow Street officer. Evidently, the Prince Regent has lost his watch and the delightfully endearing Constable Woods is the lucky man who must find it. I get a strong whiff of the time as Woods gallops through the streets, the stagnant puddles, and the greasy slime and I can [...]

    3. Another skilfully told story utilising details of crimes, processes and people of Regency London. Karen Chalmers melds fact and fiction brilliantly and engages our sympathy for the characters, especially Lavender and Woods. The Bow Street Runners come to life and Lavender continues as a clever, understated hero with no ego trips.

    4. A short story set in Regency England, and a dwarf has just stolen the Prince Regents' special pocket watch. But it's Constable Woods who is blamed for letting the thief get away. Its up to Lavender and the rest of the Bow Street Runners to find the watch and the thief.An entertaining story.

    5. A great plot and excellent charactersI really enjoyed this novella. Heaped with early nineteenth century atmosphere in London , this gripping tale takes Lavender into the depth of the city's low life to trace a stolen watch, owned by the Prince Regent. Lots of twists and turns, and surprises.June Finnigan - Writer

    6. Excellent short story/novellaDetective Lavender and Constable Woods solve this case in so little time I didn't get the usual satisfaction of guessing who the culprit was, or where the loot. But even a little Detective Lavender is a joy to read.Don't miss the author's note at the end.

    7. A wonderful historical fiction based on actual facts! I have read the 3 full length novels and patiently waiting for the 4th. Going back to look for the first novels about Stephen Lavender. Wonderful read!

    8. A stolen pocketwatch, a clever thief and the race to recover itWell-written short story about a stolen pocketwatch, a clever thief and the race to find both before a vicious gang finds them. I enjoyed this story so much I think I'll have to read the full length novels.

    9. better than the other skelton short story, but still a pale imitation of the feature length books what makes it better than the skeleton diamonds is this one does a better job of incorporating the old london color notes I like so much

    10. Short story in the series . . . . enjoyable quick read. Works as a stand alone so not a bad choice if you're considering the series. Of course the plots in the full length novels are more involved.

    11. Another winner!Detective Lavender does it again! These are some of the best historical fiction I have read. Entertaining, interesting and impossible to put down!

    12. A great novella where the characters (mostly) felt well identified. The scenes were fairly vivid for such a short work. Looking forward to reading more Detective Lavender!

    13. Quick, joyful readIt's official, I'm a fan of detective Lavender! I love the historical setting, the crime solving team of Woods and Lavender are a perfect match.

    14. Happy to find a couple of Detective Lavender short stories since there won't be anything new until next year!

    15. This was really well written and an interesting detective story that I could definitely picture being turned into a TV show. The accents were slightly challenging, as was some of the terminology/slang.

    16. Short storyI enjoyed this entertaining short story. A quick read. Hope all who read enjoy it as much as I did

    17. Great read.A quick read that keeps your interest. Could have easily been developed into a full mystery novel with more developed characters.

    18. I finished binge reading the Absolutely Fabulous, and Brilliant 'Detective Lavender Series' by Karen Charlton a couple of days ago and I am utterly lost Imagine Sir Arthur Conan Doyle meets Dame Agatha Christie with a wee dash of 'Ripper Street' thrown in for your arm-chair detective reading pleasure brilliant and atmospheric, enthralling old-fashioned Historical Mysteries that are absolutely Unputdownable Karen Charlton is an extraordinarily, gifted and talented storyteller Methinks I shall go [...]

    19. This detective is charming, the plots are clever and the writing is so smooth you'll find it hard to put down - total enjoyment.

    20. I always enjoy reading about the adventures of Lavender & Woods. While there is a sequel soon to be released in the full-length series, it's nice to keep current with the guys via short stories. This particular one was more action than mystery aside from the uncertainty of the second thief's identity. Most of the plot centered around our duo trying to best the original officer on the case in order to bail Woods out of his embarrassing ordeal. Regardless, it was a pretty fast-paced short stor [...]

    21. Prince George loses a very important pocket watch to a dwarf pickpocket. The pickpocket then loses it to another thief who blows snuff in his face to distract him. The man is called a snuffer and policeman Woods falls to a snuff attack also.Another obnoxious policeman who was supposed to be guarding Prince George blames Woods for the whole incident and gets him suspended. Into the fray comes Detective Lavender who will not see a good policeman destroyed by the likes of Townsend, who takes credit [...]

    22. A fast paced period mystery to get lost in.I didn't find out about this short story until after I read the first Detective Lavender novel. I thought this story was very well written and that the characters were so well developed that I could almost see them in my mind's eye. The action is fast paced and I found it hard to put the book down. I look forward to reading more books by this author.

    23. Best Short Story Mystery I have read in years.This is a well-written mystery. The plot is tight and no words are wasted in this short story. I have read other works of Ms. Charlton and really enjoyed them. Even though this is a short story, the work shows her fine style and the flavor of her longer mysteries permeates the story.This is really worth 5 stars.

    24. Enjoyable short story to wet my appetite for moreI picked up the 3rd book as an ARC a month back and then bought the two short stories. Karen told me this is the best one to start with, I'm onto the next short story and found the first 2 full stories this week for 99p each I've been spoiled.

    25. Lovely little short read which I enjoyed very much.Am really getting to like the main protagonists of Lavender & Wood.I find Karen Charlton's writing to be very easy to read; I find her descriptive passages conjure up pictures in my mind as I read about the people and places in the book.Already have the Heiress of Linn Hagh to dive into, which I am looking forward to.

    26. Memorable characters and good mysteryDetective lavender is excellently developed and even more desirable as a true hero of Bow Street. The only thing lacking was a full story, but well told as a short.

    27. Great little mysteryI really enjoyed this book. It's like Sherlock Holmes meets Detective Stephen Lavender but Detective Lavender is much more fun and enjoyable. Looking forward to reading the rest of these mysteries.

    28. A Wonderful ReadI love what author Karen Charlton has created with the Bow street runners, Stephen Lavender and Ned Woods. What a lovely team! The setting, language, and mystery all have an authentic feel that draws you into the story.
