Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Kasasian deepens the mystery of the relationship between his decidedly non–Holmes and Watson duo in his superior second whodunit set in late Victorian London…Kasasian again successfully blends the gruesome and the humorous.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Witty and imaginative.” Kirkus 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.” Daily Mail (London) on The Mangle Street Murders
