I've read these and enjoyed them (apart from the last, which I
assume isn't out in paperback yet), though I don't think they're
as good as the late, great Kate Ross's Julian Kestrel mysteries. 
I would say they're on an upward trend, though; there was more
emotional depth in THE BLOODIED CRAVAT than in the previous ones.
