Review: One hundred and twenty years ago, Charles Robinson and William Westerly were betrayed and murdered by Charles’ brother. The surviving testament of their love is a journal and an elaborate pocket watch with the sign of “Pi’ on its cover. One hundred and twenty years later these will bring two different men together to solve the mystery and the murder.

 
Written as a story within a story, this book is extremely well written, plotted and presented. Seamlessly, the book moves from the past to the present as the life of each pair of men is explained. There is mystery, intrigue and enduring love. This is far removed from a typical romance.
The author’s depiction of the late Gilded Age comes alive, in both manners and morality. The part of the present day story is contrasted with that of the past. The character of the grandmother is a complete hoot. My grandmother never carried a Luger in her purse.

 
I highly recommend both the book and the author.
