1912. Released from the Secret Service, Wiggins sets out for New York and his lost lover Bela. But after an altercation on board, he finds himself among the low-life of Britain's poorest city, Dublin.

Wiggins falls in with gangster Patrick O'Connell and is soon driving the boss's girlfriend around town. Molly wants O'Connell to support her Irish nationalist cause - a cause needing guns to defeat the British - and then they go to find them in America.

Finally, Wiggins can solve the mystery of Bela - and meet his old mentor, Sherlock Holmes in a story of escalating intrigue, danger and violence.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Lyle's series of thrillers featuring Wiggins, once one of Sherlock Holmes's Baker Street Irregulars, are coming on splendidly . . . Skilfully mixing real history with action sequences worthy of Lee Child, this is historical crime-writing at its best - John Williams, Mail on Sunday

Full throttle, highly entertaining historical hokum, delivering entertainment in spades - Myles McWeeney, Irish Independent

Lyle's unique blend of real history, inventive storytelling and characters borrowed from Conan Doyle is exhilarating... an action packed historical thriller... This is a series I hope will run and run - New Books Magazine

The third outing in H.B. Lyle's engaging series of historical thrillers... The story rattles along at pace, the characters are engaging and the fight scenes burst with action. But Lyle's great strength is in his depiction of time and place; from its stinking tenements, where babies cry from hunger, to its sinister docks and upmarket brothels, the Edwardian city - then still part of Britain - is brought to life in all its squalid, magnificent glory - Financial Times

A bruising, gritty and very entertaining adventure amid the slums and salons of 1912 Dublin, a city about to explode - Ed O'Loughlin

Impressive period detail and sharp dialogue add charm to the strong plot - Daily Mail (on The Irregular)
