Now, this being #8 in the series, it’s going to be difficult to do my usual recap of the series. I know it’s crazy but I think the stories are intertwined, at this point by characters, so if you don’t know about them, the review might feel confusing...
Maiden Lane originally was based in St. Giles and revolved around a shadowy character with Harlequin costume and a mask to protect his identity; who went by the name of The Ghost of St. Giles. He was a legend among the locals; some thought him a friend, while others thought him the bad guy. But no one really knew who he was and what the hell he was doing, running in the dark alleyways of St. Giles every night, evading the law enforcement send out to catch him. The series also started with 4 Makepeace siblings (out of 6, their eldest brother and sister were never really part of this series in anyway but by mention) Temperance, Asa, Silence and Winter. Even Asa was a pretty vague character who also made a few appearances in different installments, alluding to the fact that he lives a secret life but his siblings are unaware of anything about his life.
