I enjoy the Maitre Charles du Luc character with the contrasts between his past life as a soldier with his new vocation to become a priest of the Jesuit order by teaching rhetoric and dance in the college of Louis le Grand operated by the Jesuits in Paris. I enjoy the true historical information given regarding this schooling for young boys and learning about the educational system in place at that time. I also like learning about Paris in the 1680's with all the social, religious, and political layers of life during this period in history. What I also want is an intriguing mystery to captivate my attention and challenge my deductive capabilities. For me, this novel was not as good from the standpoint of the construction of the mystery as the first novel. I sincerely hope that will not happen again in The Plague of Lies because I truly enjoy reading historical mysteries.
