Praise for The Irregular

'H.B. Lyle has found the golden thread between Bond and Holmes' Giles Foden, author of The Last King of Scotland

'Impressive period detail and sharp dialogue add charm to the strong plot' Daily Mail

'A thrilling story of espionage, murder and the creation of the Secret Service' Charles Cumming, author of A Colder War

Now an agent of the newly-formed Secret Service, Wiggins is still determined to track down Peter the Painter, the murderer of his friend Bill. Meanwhile Captain Kell is under pressure to identify who is leaking vital information from the government and his wife Constance is getting dangerously close to the more militant faction of suffragettes.

When Wiggins traces one of the old Baker Street Irregulars gang to a mysterious club in Belgravia, the action follows thick and fast in another brilliantly compelling novel of betrayal and suspense.
