Why read it?

1 author picked Murder at Drury Lane as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Historical setting is the main draw here. Benjamin Franklin is in 1750s London, and the interest comes from the history. Franklin becomes involved in the lively theater scene of the era, and we get to see the sage's particular genius at work. The great joy here comes from all the period details and the delightful descriptions of the theatre world in Georgian England.

From R.J.'s list on mysteries in the theatre world.
