London Society takes their problems to Sherlock Holmes. Everyone else goes to Arrowood.

The Afghan War is over and a deal with the Irish appears to have brought an end to sectarian violence, but Britain's position in the world is uncertain and the gap between rich and poor is widening. London is a place where the wealthy party while the underclass are tempted into lives of crime, drugs and prostitution. A serial killer stalks the streets. Politicians are embroiled in financial and sexual scandals. The year is 1895.

Why I'm waiting: I'm a huge Sherlockian, and while this isn't a Sherlock Holmes novel, it seems to be set in his world. So I'll definitely be picking this one up!


  1. I can't wait to read this one as well. I've really started liking historical fiction mysteries the past few years. Great choice!

  2. This sounds sooo good doesn't it?> I particularly like they're setting him up against Sherlock in a way

  3. I love that tagline at the top of the book! Great pick!
