March 2014 eBook of the Month.

Love him or hate him, this star ‘personal’ detective Sidney Grice is certainly an interesting character. We are period, 1882, so a tongue-in-cheek, quirky, Victorian romp. Sidney’s ward, March, arrives to stay. Murders abound. She has a hunch she knows some answers but is dismissed for she is a mere girl! Of course she comes good. This is both a funny ha-ha and a funny peculiar tale. It begins a series which could be fun.

Synopsis

The Mangle Street Murders by M. R. C. Kasasian

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. March Middleton is Sidney Grice's ward, and she is determined to help him on his next case. Her guardian thinks women are too feeble for detective work, but when a grisly murder in the slums proves too puzzling for even Sidney Grice's encyclopaedic brain, March Middleton turns out to be rather useful after all...Set in a London still haunted by the spectre of the infamous Spring-heeled Jack, THE MANGLE STREET MURDERS is for those who like their crime original, atmospheric, and very, very funny.

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. Catch them now' - Daily Mail
