Oh me oh my I sooo wanted to like this book It sounded just my thing Alas, it did not work for me Maybe I had on my grouchy pants when I was reading it, I don t know.My biggest complaint was that the author was trying too hard The idea was really clever, if not too original The story is told in the first person by our main character, the madam of a Victorian era London brothel that caters to a good segment of society minor nobility, government officials, military officers, etc.Alas, one of those [...]

This book was a nice surprise I enjoyed it a lot than I thought I would India Black is witty, sarcastic and has a dry sense of humor The fact that she runs a brothel adds to the humor of the story You come to like French and Vincent who are India s partners in crime I m sure they will be featured in other stories too I did find there was some English slang used that I wasn t familiar with and couldn t define A glossary or footnote of some of those things would be helpful But I sorta just ride o [...]

I think this is another of those it s not you, it s me moments Victorian era historicals and I just don t get along I can sometimes be persuaded otherwise if, for example, there happens to be a good dose of magic or supernatural happenings that use the foggy streets to their best advantage, which is partly why I thought India and I would get along The foggy streets, that is, not the magic hint there isn t any.India Black is a fantastic, feisty, not at all modest heroine and luckily one who does [...]

Well I liked the book, sort of, but it wasn t what I expected India was funny She was very outspoken and definitely had a different sort of outlook on life But a major part of the story was missing Part of the description on the back of the book was this But it is their own tempestuous relationship they will have to weather as India and French attempt to reset the mutual attraction between them an attraction that can prove as deadly as the conspiracy entangling them This is talking about the mai [...]

I really liked this much than I would have thought Never heard of this series I was searching through my nook one night and came across this I downloaded the sample and was hooked by the preface alone So I bought it and I m so glad I did I really liked India She was sassy, honest, independent, quite funny, and made no excuses for herself Even though she s a madam, it s not the main story, part of the background I guess I would say When she gets involved with spies she meets French I really like [...]

First of all, I LOVED the heroine, India What a woman I could spend hours typing quotes of all the witty, sarcastic, funny, and wise things she says or thinks throughout the book Every word in this volume is the gospel truth You can put your money on the counter and buy the book, or you can go to the devil It s all the same to me There s a natural affinity between politicans and whores, having, as they do, certain similarities, that breed a type of professional courtesy, if you will For example, [...]

India Black is a boss from hell, a shallow, mean spirited creature who thinks little of humanity and the world around her I think the author was trying for a frank vulgarness to give things a funny, tell it like it is tone, and a lot of other reviewers talk about the narration s wit.Let my put it this way within the first chapter we are already well informed that as a madam, India Black thinks everyone in her employ is an addicted moron For reasons I can t fathom, the authour decided the best po [...]

Picked this one up for a bit of light fun, which it provided I m not sure about the comparisons to Gail Carriger s books sure, the period is roughly the same and the covers have some commonalities, but Alexia is a lady and India is a mercenary whore and I mean that literally, not pejoratively The kind of humour is different sharper, less light, often relying on India s bitter attitude toward, well, almost everyone Carriger does have Alexia being intelligent than a lot of people, but she also ha [...]

In order for me to enjoy this novel I would have had to have a strong willingness to suspend disbelief and as a rule I don t I don t enjoy fantasy fiction at all and if what I m reading defies logic I m generally less than enad, as was the case with this book Humor is also not something I generally read, though I do enjoy a novel that incorporates history and adventure, which this novel seemed to attempt to do I thought the story started out interesting enough with a compelling conflict for the [...]

This is supposed to be a mystery but I don t think so The whole point of the book is to retrieve a briefcase full of state secrets, yet we know WHO took it, WHERE they are stashing it, WHY they took it, and WHEN then took it The only part is HOW a madam i.e retired Hooker and a government agent are going to be able to get it back The answer SHEER LUCK AND BUMBLING AROUND LIKE IDIOTS Thus, no mystery.What is sad that I totally expected to like this book to love it even I love Deanna Raybourn s La [...]

I really wanted to like this book, but somehow it failed to charm me I read the first few pages online before ordering the book and I have to say that the beginning immediately drew me in Unfortunately, once I had the actual book in my hands my enthusiasm waned pretty quickly after the first few chapters.The main character of the story is the title giving India Black, a whore with lots of dry humor and a fairly cynical view on life I didn t dislike her, but I didn t quite like her, either I can [...]

What I liked The main character of the story is Miss India Black, an intelligent whore with lots of dry humor and a fairly cynical view on life I loved her narrative voice as the book is told from her perspective because it was brutally honest, outspoken and wickedly entertaining However, the fact that India, once a working girl, now the owner of a brothel, is in peace with her inner self, accepting her fate without any remorse or second thoughts, I liked the best She makes absolutely no excuses [...]

The Stephanie Plum of the 19th century, India Black is headstrong and clever but not always very graceful and it lands her in a number of dangerous yet amusing situations that she handles with dry wit and sarcasm Hell, she even has her own black sidekick at one point Then there s the handsome Mr French, a spy who works for the Prime Minister s office, but he only resembles Ranger with his mysterious background India has her own secrets though, and I can t wait to read the rest of the series to f [...]

Excellent first novel I was amused and enthused from the first chapter The book is categorised as an historical mystery but there really isn t much mystery involved A lot of the story reads a bit like keystone cops play spy, but truly, I found the book entertaining and the characters interesting enough for me to care what happened to them I m looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

What a delightful read this turned out to be Set in 1876 London this was less of a mystery and of a series of political capers centering around some highly sensitive government documents The book caught my attention with the very first two lines of the Preface, and I rarely even notice the Preface in books My name is India Black I am a whore To be fair, India has left the game so to speak in favor of running her own bordello, The Lotus House In a time when most women passed from their father s [...]

3.5 starsIndia Black is a well written and entertaining read, featuring a no nonsense, street wise, and book smart whore turned madam who is the namesake of the book While I do like India and her voice, there was something about her that felt off, and after thinking about it I ve come to realize that I really don t know her that well I find that odd because the book is told first person Even though this is the first in the series and some authors may not want to divulge everything about a charac [...]

3.5 stars rounding up.Well, for a historical mystery, it didn t seem very mysterious I still liked it but felt it lacked suspense and the whodunnitness that I m used to Maybe in later books I do like India s character for the most part, she s humorous and mostly capable I did wonder who ran the Lotus House when she was running around saving England, but I m weird and wonder about trivial stuff like that sometimes We don t really get much info on French, but to me he only felt sorta competent as [...]

This book totally hinges on whether or not you like India as a narrator She s an unapologetic madam whore, cynical about her customers, employees and the politicians she becomes entangled with She s a hard hearted pragmatist and if you need narrators sympathetic and nice, then look elsewhere I liked that she was what a survivor in those circumstances usually is, like it or not the Disney Whores TM someone from Dear Author that so often populate fiction wouldn t really last long in the world It [...]
