Devilishly good historical murder mystery

5 stars

A devil run amok on a ship filled with some of the worst rogues around - what's not to love? This was a real pleasure to read, mixing murder mystery, historical fiction, fantasy, and a touch of horror. Stuart Turton didn't get bogged down with a hundred pages of character introductions before the story gets started. Instead this starts with a bang, finishes with a bang, and is full of bangs throughout, all while making you love, loathe, and constantly question the motives of his varied cast of characters. I'm excited for what he writes next. Highly recommended.
