Publisher's Summary

Gower Street, 1883: March Middleton is the niece of London's greatest (and most curmudgeonly) personal 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.

    "another great book"

    The series continues to get better and better. This author really puts together characters that both make you smile and tear your hair out in frustration. I can not recommend this book and the rest of the series enough.

    "Great story, masterful narration!"

    This is the third of the Gower Street Series, equally perplexing and wonderfully narrated by Emma Gregory.

    "."

    great to have less than perfect /beautiful protagonists. a plot full of twists and turns, one box within another...eventually dragging me in. somewhat less humour than in earlier books. would. happily.listen to further adventures of Grice and March....have they been written yet.

    Yes great fun and clever


    What other book might you compare Death Descends on Saturn Villa to, and why?

    This is the third book and I look forward to more. If you love the Bryant and May series you'll love these. Crime, humour, wonderful characters and fantastic narration set in the Victorian period.

    No spoilers! But these books certainly bring the era alive.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh out load on numorous occasions. And joy these books are pure joy.


    Any additional comments?

    More please! A book I listened to at every occasion. I can't complement Emma Gregory enough, each character is so distinctive, male and female.

    I did not realise this was the third book in the series but it was a story complete on its own. A qwerty mystery and quite entertaining if a little gruesome in places

    "Conan Doyle with a sense of humour!"
    Where does Death Descends on Saturn Villa rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Its a good one -lots of action, interest, a good pace,and delightfully interpreted by the reader


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Death Descends on Saturn Villa?

    Events from the viewpoint of Sidney Grice, very caustic but so much fun


    What about Emma Gregory’s performance did you like?

    All of it. All the characters were great. I probably liked her being Molly best.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Lunatics are mad

    Worth a listen. I have listened to all three books available so far, they are all good, this is the best.
