False Tongues; Kate Charles

False Tongues (A Callie Anson Mystery, #4)False Tongues by Kate Charles
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Kate Charles' earlier series, Book of Psalms, got me hooked on her ecclesiastic mysteries. This series is good, but for some reason doesn't quite rise to the other levels. In this outing, one of the biggest problems is that Callie is part of what feels like the B story (off on a "reunion" of her seminary class) while the real mystery is the A story. That felt like a weird choice, even if the author is trying to give us more about Marco and his world so as to blend the two in later works. I also wanted more of a sense of Cambridge than was provided.
