The Mangle Street Murders

LoveReading View on The Mangle Street Murders

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.

The Mangle Street Murders Synopsis

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.
