Rated 5 out of 5 by from More rollicking mystery adventures from a brilliant young lady detective in 1930s London -- Great Book 2, can't wait for the next! I'm a sucker for period mysteries, so the fun and historically stylish concept of Thrice Burned (and the Portia Adams adventures generally) alone is like catnip to a Holmes-loving, Agatha Christie-adoring reader like me. I was impressed with the first book in the series but thrilled to report Thrice Burned has me raving. It nailed all the crucial 'must-do's for a sequel: the cases themselves are curiosity-piquing puzzles, the character development builds wonderfully as Portia navigates the treacherous waters of female friendship, romance, and the in-between-ness of her relationship with her neighbour and colleague, Constable Dawes. Oh, and there's a PUPPY! But what truly had me raising cheers of happiness is the way Misri seamlessly weaves contemporary feminist and socio-political themes into a book that whose rollicking plots will draw in young readers - she does it subtly, beautifully, and in so doing makes this fun read equally relevant to anyone trying to wrap their head around the rights and privileges of have's and have-not's in the culture of 1930s London and of our world today. Can't wait for the next one in the series. Really. I'd like to read it now, please! Mirsi also includes a section where she describes how she writes historical fiction and comes up with the mysteries in the book... very cool add-on.
