From one of the SF and fantasy & horror field's most urbane - and much under-appreciated- writers, the first in a series of lightweight and terribly witty Victorian adventures to feature the cases of Miss Aphrodite Lane and Mr Jasper Jesperson of 203A Gower Street. The nod to Sherlock Holmes is self-evident, but what Tuttle (who once collaborated with Game of Thrones George R R Martin) brings to the table is a gossamer touch of fantasy and tongue in cheek thrills that sets her investigative duo apart. Miss Lane is a Scottish psychic investigator still recovering from the fact that her initial employer, Miss X, was actually a fraud. Moving to London she teams up with Jesperson, a consulting detective and their initial case plunges the reader into a smog-laden Dickensian London where psychic energy, mediums and whole levels of trickery and obfuscation reign, when they are soon confronted by stolen jewels, a sleepwalking acolyte and a vanishing medium. The two investigators' talents and personalities complement each other's nicely and the intrepid duo soon establish a solid working relationship as the case progresses beyond sheer mystery and lunacy. Both comical and exciting, this is a delight of a read, and when a new case emerges on the horizon of the final page, it makes you want to urge the author to write the duo's second set of adventures faster so we can feast on it as soon as possible.
