Fresh, funny crime series for fans of Jasper Fforde and M.C. Beaton.

'Delightful and original ... A series that could well become a cult' DAILY MAIL.

125 Gower Street, 1884.

Sidney Grice - London's foremost personal detective - is restless. Having filed his latest case under 'S' for 'Still To Be Solved', his ward, March Middleton, remains determined to uncover the truth.

When an attacker strikes on the murky streets of Limehouse, and a new victim is discovered in an overcrowded cafe, it's clear that the duo are on the trail of a serial offender. A trail that leads them to a Prussian Prince, an Armenian gangster, and the shadowy ruin of a once-loved family home, Steep House...

MEDIA REVIEWS
'An ingenious and atmospheric historical mystery ... Packed with delicious humour, red herrings, devious twists and turns, wonderful characters, evocative period details and some dark and grisly descriptions ... Witty, clever and highly enjoyable' Bookish Jottings.
'The books are a perfect recipe of action, characters and narration, although in this latest book, there is a fair amount of sadness too' Childtastic Books.
'The tone and structure was reminiscent of the work of Edgar Allan Poe ... Kasasian strikes the perfect balance between humour and tension, and this gives the novel the ingredients for a real page turner' Portable Magic.
'I found the mixture of quirky humour, eccentric characters and compelling plot really entertaining and I hope there will be another outing for Sidney Grice and March Middleton soon' What Cathy Read Next.
'A rollicking blend of mystery, historical fiction, and coming-of-age novel. Stakes are high in this game of who dies next, which is one of the darker entries in Kasasian's Gower Street series, but nonetheless compelling for its mood change' Booklist (starred review).
'Kasasian's fifth Victorian-era novel featuring 'personal detective' Sidney Grice and Grice's ward, March Middleton, shows him back at the top of his game. The twisted solution to the case ranks as one of the series' most terrifying, and classic whodunit fans will appreciate Kasasian's playing fair with them' Publishers Weekly (starred review).
'Set in 1884 London with its fashionable squares, seedy slums and busy dockland vividly described. The pacing is rapid, with short chapters containing plenty of movement and action. A change from the elegant manners of most Victorian mystery novels and evokes masculine grittiness instead of the more usual feminine nuance' Historical Novels Society.
'A welcome addition to the genre' Historical Novel Society.

What Cathy Read Next

“Clever, funny suspenseful historical mystery - hugely entertaining”

The story is narrated by March Middleton, goddaughter of Sidney Grice. March also acts as chronicler of Grice’s cases in the manner of Dr John Watson for Sherlock Holmes. In fact, Grice holds a similarly low opinion... More
