5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mystery stories
Hester and Ivy are on good form again. I particularly liked the clever twists and unexpected ending in the story about the Bloomsbury spiritualist. A great follow up to "The Puzzled Bridegroom" collection. I hope these two lively sleuths get another outing soon!

3.0 out of 5 stars THREE FOR THE PRICE OF ONE
Author Tony Evans THE CASE OF THE SOHO ANARCHIST is in fact a collection of three separate mystery stories, plus a "teaser" for a fourth, all involving Victorian lady detective Hester Lynton and her quick-witted assistant Ivy Jessop.

As with their male counterparts, Holmes and Watson these ladies utilize deductive reasoning to apprehend the various perpetrators...

4.0 out of 5 stars A winning series, 22 Mar 2013
This review is from: The Soho Anarchist (The Hester Lynton Mysteries - Casebook Two) (Kindle Edition)
Whilst these stories may not be packed full of heart-racing twists and turns, there is plenty of mystery and intrigue to amuse readers in this collection. I would desscribe The Soho Anarchist as a selection of great short reads that are easy to read and easy to enjoy - this promises to be a winning series. I look forward to the next instalment!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Read, 2 Mar 2013
This review is from: The Soho Anarchist (The Hester Lynton Mysteries - Casebook Two) (Kindle Edition)
As a die-hard Agathie Christie fan, I am always hesitant when it comes to new detective fiction - nothing beats the old classics! However, Tony Evans' casebooks took me by surprise. They are a delight to read with plenty of mystery, intrigue, plot twists, and a healthy helping of witty humour. These are great for anyone looking for a short and enjoyable read!

Hester Lynton and Ivy strike again in this great collection of short stories. Having read the first casebook, I couldn't wait to get started on the sharp-witted duo's next adventure. And this collection does not dissapoint - plenty of sharp twists and turns and excellent detective work by the pair. If you haven't already, I would thoroughly recommend downloading these fantastic mysteries!

This review is from: The Soho Anarchist (The Hester Lynton Mysteries - Casebook Two) (Kindle Edition)
Author Tony Evans THE CASE OF THE SOHO ANARCHIST is in fact a collection of three separate mystery stories, plus a "teaser" for a fourth, all involving Victorian lady detective Hester Lynton and her quick-witted assistant Ivy Jessop.

As with their male counterparts, Holmes and Watson these ladies utilize deductive reasoning to apprehend the various perpetrators featured in all three cases which include not only the aforementioned Soho Anarchist but also THE ADVENTURE OF GREYSTONES VILLA and THE CASE OF THE BLOOMSBURY MEDIUM. No case or undertaking is too dangerous for these lady sleuths as they confront everything from bombs and booby-trapped packages to distressing hoaxes and presumed supernatural events.

These adventures set in Victorian London are a perfect way to provide respite in your busy day or a lite read before you turn off the lights at bedtime. As Goldilocks might say, they're not too long, not too complicated, they're just right for an innocuous end to your busy day. Even Dame Agatha would be inclined to confer on Mr. Evans a thumbs up on this effort. 3 1/2 stars.
