5.0 out of 5 stars Smart, sparkling and sly: superb!, 14 Nov. 2013
M.R.C. Kasasian's debut novel is really excellent: a great read for anyone who likes detective "duos," Victorian mysteries, comic dialogue or just plain good writing. Clever and fast-paced, with richly imagined characters and a well-constructed plot, it combines the rollicking energy of the "penny dreadfuls" with depth, poignancy and a bit of meta-fictional modernism. Kasasian's main creations--eccentric detective Sidney Grice and his equally clever, equally unconventional goddaughter March Middleton--are tremendously fun to read; the constant shifts in their balance of power and their intriguing backstories promise many a satisfying series installment. Can't recommend this one highly enough!
