    Gower Street, London, 1882: Sidney Grice, London's most famous personal detective, is expecting a visitor. He drains his fifth pot of morning tea, and glances outside, where a young, plain woman picks her way between the piles of horse-dung towards his front door. Sidney Grice shudders. For heaven's sake - she is wearing brown shoes. The Mangle Street Murders is for those who like their crime original, atmospheric, and very, very funny.

    Funny, entertaining and unpredictable

    Yes, the plot twists and turns and the subtle humour would be great for a re-listen.

    London, 1883: All is quiet at 125 Gower Street.

    Omg! Is he, her father?
