66. Reliquary–Preston/Child and 67. What Angels Fear–C.S. Harris

Reliquary is the second book in the Pendergast thriller series. A wild ride as Pendergast and old friends find out that they didn’t really understand what happened in BOOK 1, and that things were going pear-shaped again.  Very effective sequel.

What Angels Fear is a period mystery, set in London, just as the Regency is about to begin. A woman is found murdered and raped in a church and the clues point to Lord Devlin, the only remaining son of one of the Prince’s main advisors. I realized after I began this that I’d read it many years ago.  I did remember whodunnit, but reread it entirely anyway. Quite a good period mystery with lots of grimy scenes of the poor sectors of London.
