An interesting story. Complex plot and characters. The author wrote in a style that would sound normal in that time period, so it made it seem more realistic. I may read another book of his, as well.
I recently stumbled on the novels of David Liss, who has written a series of mysteries set in 18th century novel and featuring a Jewish boxer turned private investigator (or at least the 18th century equivalent). Aside from being well-crafted and suspenseful, Liss does a fantastic job of evoking the milieu of the era, as well as tackling more serious issues. In the first book, "A Conspiracy of Paper," the early days of the stock market was the backdrop, while in the second novel in the series, it was politics. This is the third in the series and the East India Company is a key part of the story. It does help if you have some familiarity with the time period of have read authors from the period like Henry Fielding and Samuel Johnson. I seldom say this, but it would make a great film or TV series.
