5.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling, witty detective story, 15 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Mangle Street Murders (The Gower Street Detective Series 1) (Kindle Edition)
Don't pick this up unless you have time to finish it! Having recently read a few detective stories set in the present day, I fancied a change of scenery and this was perfect. Witty, fresh writing and a plot that moves along swiftly; lead characters that you want to read more about; a murder mystery that keeps you guessing - to use a cliche, I couldn't put it down! MRC Kasasian has created a detective with more than a few flaws (arrogant, snobbish, drinks tea without milk...) but the clever narration makes the reader still want him to succeed. The dry humour is never at the expense of the story; it is great to find a detective story that is neither farcical nor deathly serious. I'm thoroughly looking forward to the next book in the series - any chance of it coming out a bit sooner, please?
