This novel is wonderfully written and compelling, with memorable characters who are very much of their time without being cliche. The tragedy of the Woolwich Ferry is poignant without being mawkish, though the author doesn't baulk at describing the worse sides of life in East End London in the 1870's.This includes the casual incompetence of the Victorian police, something Best has to overcome as his moral compass points in the right direction. I will definitely read more books by this author.

But before Helen returns Ernest Best is involved in several adventures which lead him into physical danger and he gains some unexpected allies. I enjoyed this well written Victorian mystery and I thought the background was well done. The characters are convincing too with the Best’s police colleagues being especially well drawn and believable.
This book continually surprised me with the story going off at tangents I had not foreseen. The ending was especially good I thought, though it wasn’t what I was expecting. I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys Victorian mysteries.
Am so impressed that i have already ordered the next one
