Australian history with a bit of crime and romance

I am really enjoying the Sulari Gentill books of the Rowland Sinclair series.

gentlemen-formerly-dressed

I have just finished Gentlemen Formerly Dressed and enjoyed it just as much as the previous book I reviewed.  The story moves along at a rollicking pace and I stop now and again to check on some particular aspect of Australian history mentioned in the plot.  I love how Sulari Gentill brings history to life.  I have never been a great lover of history but I am loving this series.  The book is set in London but follows on from the troubles they had while in Nazi Germany.

From the cover:

After narrowly escaping the terror of Nazi Germany, Rowland Sinclair and his companions land in London, believing they are safe.

But they are wrong.

A bizarre murder plunges the hapless Australians into a queer world of British aristocracy, Fascist Blackshirts, illicit love, scandal, and spies.

A world where gentlemen are not always what they are dressed up to be.

 There are some wonderful reviews to be found here.

This is another for my Historical Fiction Reading Challenge.
