It is one of my favorites. I also loved Swan Song by the same author, though it was a little harder to get into than Speaks the Nightbird.
Matthew Corbett is a fresh and unique character to join the ranks of other serial detectives. The historical setting also provides a fresh take on the detective story. I also loved Mrs. Nettles, the sturdy and brave housekeeper!
The voicing of the characters gave the book a feel of theater which my own reading would not.
I couldn't stop myself, and it got in the way of my other obligations!
I can hardly wait to start Queen of Bedlam....
