Gower Street, London: 1883.
March Middleton is the niece of London's greatest (and most curmudgeonly) private detective, Sidney Grice. March has just discovered a wealthy long-lost relative she never knew she had. When this newest family member meets with a horrible death, March is in the frame for murder and only Sidney Grice can prove her innocence.
Grice agrees to investigate (for his usual fee) but warns that he is not entirely convinced of her innocence. If he were in her position, he might have been tempted. But the more he uncovers, the more all the clues point to Grice himself . . ."
One of the most delightful and original new novels of the year. A series that could well become a cult."
A well-plotted mystery full of twists and turns, skullduggery, danger, and double-dealing.
Think Lemony Snicket meets Neil Gaiman for tea in Dracula s castle."
Exceptional. The Grand Guignol plot line is leavened with laugh-out-loud passages showcasing both Grice s literalness and disregard for social niceties."
Not just another Sherlock Holmes pastiche, this series has its own allure that will attract fans of Will Thomas, Alex Grecian, and David Morrell.
Kasasian surpasses Grice s first two cases with a bizarre, clever, and constantly surprising whodunit."
The series has achieved a significant following due in some part to the author s brisk and fluid style, sharp, short chapters adequately paced, and due in greater part to the humorously arrogant antics of the detective at the center of the series, one Sidney Grice. If you re a fan, you ll love the dynamism in this one."
