Review:
'The Queen of the Georgian historical mystery' The Times 'An effervescent tale... the author organises her large cast and colourful background with skill and gusto through a racily readable drama.' Mail On Sunday 'The charm of Lake's series is the astringent relationship between her two protagonists, which pulls off the trick of appearing both modern and historically persuasive.' The Times 'Lake brings eighteenth century England to life in a fine colourful style... Georgette Heyer... but with the knickers off.' Yorkshire Post
Synopsis:
Devon, April 1759...Newlyweds John Rawlings and Emilia are spending their honeymoon touring the mysterious county of Devon. The gruesome discovery of a young girl's body, badly beaten and bruised and draped over the figurehead of a schooner draws the Apothecary into the investigation. He recognises the dead girl as Juliana van Guylder, and when her brother, Richard, goes missing too John realises that, honeymoon or no, he is deeply involved in something rather sinister. Soon the Flying Runners are on the scene, but although they know the identity of the dead girl, they are still no further towards finding her killer. And where does the violent gang that has been terrorising Exeter, the mysterious Society of Angels, fit in to all this? John Rawlings is determined to solve this case...even if it means putting himself in danger. Death in the West Wind is the seventh novel in Deryn Lake's highly acclaimed Georgian mystery series featuring sleuthing apothecary, John Rawlings.

Based on the real-life historical apothecary who invented carbonated water in England, other characters also featured include John Fielding, the Blind Beak of London who founded the Runners (later to become the Bow Street Runners) and his assistant, Joe Jago.
