The Truth of All Things by Kieran Shields

The Truth of All Things by Kieran Shields

A woman is found brutally murdered in 1892 in a warehouse in Portland, Maine.  Evidence found at the murder scene points to ties to both Native Americans and witchcraft – specifically the Witch Trials in Salem from two hundred years before.  Deputy Marshal Archie Lean knows that he needs help; this is unlike anything he’s ever seen.  Enter Perceval Grey, Pinkerton Agent, part-Indian and man of science. 

It was interesting to see a serial killer story set in this time and place.  More mystery than thriller, it unfolds slowly with many red herrings thrown the reader’s way.  Grey is very reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes; he even quotes him once or twice.  Fans of all things Sherlockian will find a lot to enjoy here.
