Last week, I reflected on some of the late winter / early spring British traditions that were carried forward in the all-American Groundhog Day. Becky reviewed three books:

Here be Dragons by Sharon Bolton

A novella set in the dark London underworld of police detective Lacey Flint

Summary: Here Be Dragons is a novella in the Lacey Flint mystery series (Now You See Me, Dead Scared, Lost, and A Dark and Twisted Tide). This story overlaps, a little, with Lacey’s most recent adventure, but it’s told from the perspective of her boyfriend, Mark Joesbury. Like Lacey, he’s in London law enforcement. His current case is undercover and it begins with something that should never happen, even undercover, but these things can’t be drawn on a map. Here be dragons.

Thoughts: Novellas are too short. But it was nice to visit this world again while I wait for the next Lacey Flint novel. Much of the action happens between the Golden Jubilee Bridges and the Westminster Bridge on the Thames. I was happy to revisit the area where we stayed in London in 2014.
