Publisher's Summary

London, 1884. Sidney Grice is restless, having filed his latest case under S, for 'still to be solved', to await further inspiration. His ward, March Middleton, remains determined to uncover the truth.

Geraldine Hockaday was outraged on the murky streets of Limehouse. Yet her attacker is still on the loose. But then a chance encounter brings a new victim to light, and it seems clear March and Grice are on the trail of a serial offender.

What the Critics Say

Praise for the author: "What is so refreshing about the Gower Street series is that they are never quite what you expect - these unusual originals stand out in what is a heavily populated genre." (Crime Review)

    "Brilliant"

    I am enjoying this series so much, the characters are superb, forcing me to have many a chuckle. Mr Grice is softening just a little, but is still his haughty and acerbic self. Meanwhile March is developing some of his traits - they are a good match for each other and their skills in the detecting department are second to none.

    I think there will be a long wait before book 6 :-(

    "Another good story from Gower Street"

    Emma Gregory does this book proud yet again her range of voices is great. Especially Molly the maid, she makes me laugh she's so funny. Mr Grace is still a grumpy old guy and so rude to everyone but he always seems to solve the crimes.He is March's guardian but I don't know how she puts up with him he is always putting her down. A good story, funny and clever.

    Inveterate romantic and lover of 19th Century (and earlier) European literature with an obsession for Dostoyevsky!

    "Another Masterpiece!"

    Once again we venture to the dark side of Victorian London in the company of Grice and March. We meet a variety of characters, have our wits and emotions stretched to the limit following a twisty plot with a great ending. Don't know how we will endure the wait for the next one.

    "10/10 now for 4/4 !"

    Another serious and sometimes blood thirsty, yet humorous detective tale. Brilliantly written to keep you guessing and expertly characterised by Emma Gregory.
