Editorial Reviews


One of the most delightful and original new novels of the year, this is the first in a series that could well become a cult. Grice and Middleton promise to become a positive treat. Catch them now.

-- "Daily Mail (London)"

[A] sparkling debut...Playful references suggest that Arthur Conan Doyle will model Sherlock Holmes on Grice. But unlike Holmes and Watson, the feisty, gin-swigging Middleton and irascible, mercenary Grice are evenly matched in both brains and determination. Their clever sparring, the appealing secondary characters, and an ingenious plot bode well for future installments.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

A fast-paced, witty book. While March must overcome both the prejudices of those who see her as 'mere Miss Middleton, ' Grice has to readjust his ideas about the intelligence and capability of women as he begins to accept his goddaughter as a possible assistant. Although the parallels are unmistakable, Grice and Middleton are refreshingly different from Holmes and Watson.

-- "Shelf Awareness"

A Victorian detective solves a mystery but meets his match in his independent-minded young ward...Kasasian's debut is an unflinching look at the darker side of Victorian London...Clever plotting, morbid humor, and colorful characters.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

Funny, fresh, and sharply plotted.. starring a detective duo to rival Holmes and Watson.

-- ""

Narrator Lindy Nettleton portrays the unlikable Sidney Grice, a private detective, in appropriately snooty tones.

-- "AudioFile" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
