After reading the earlier comment July 2017, I decided this was not a book I wanted to read.

The latest Mrs Murphy mystery involves two stories--a contemporary one where a private investigator is found murdered and a continuation from an early book of a 1785 story from the Deep South involving runaway slaves. The contemporary story lacks the energy of Brown's earlier books. The 1785 story suffers because the characters sound like they came out of the 20th Century. But the surprise ending makes up for at least some of these failings.
