Where the Dead Lie (Sebastian St. Cyr #12) by C.S. Harris

Sebastian has had his challenges in life but he's still standing up for his beliefs and his sense of justice.  The problem is that the dead boys don't matter to politicians who are looking for greater wealth and power...

Berkley sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published today.

Someone is badly mistreating young boys and girls.  They been whipped, knifed, and raped.  The man who broke up the burial at the abandoned cemetery grounds said the man waiting for the boy who was digging was a gentleman.  Looking for a murder among the aristocrats is very dangerous.

It doesn't make things better when he starts finding facts.  It appears a foreign diplomat and a gentleman marrying his wife's younger sister are under suspicion.  The more questions he asks, the more warnings he gets.  He has to defend his own life more than once.  But he never gives up.

This story was a bit distasteful to me because of the abuse of children but Sebastian makes one of the killers pay.  The other one hasn't paid yet, but he will.  Sebastian never gives up.  I'm just glad he has his wife and child to calm him down and take him away from the bad he sees.  They're a good couple, each with their own strength.  

I'll be watching for the next book in this series.  Sebastian's mother-in-law has just died and being cynical like I am, I think her husband murdered her.  Now to see if I am right...
