Sometimes a writer appears to pay attention to reader criticisms, as in this case. The previous book in this series had been so flawed by over the top writing that even now I would say one could skip it entirely and not miss much. This story brings the series back on track. While March is technic...

This book nearly broke me, the ending truly devastated me but it was so good! This series keeps getting better and I can't wait for more!

Implied spoilers: Reluctantly, I must give this five stars. It is so well written! One of the best in Kasasian's series, but I just finished and my heart remains broken. That state is how March ends the book, and I'm right there with her. This was wonderful but I wish I had a little more catharsi...

I love this series and have to agree with some other reviewers - it is definitely getting darker! Kasasian writes so well that the reader becomes totally immersed in gloomy Victorian London and all of its colourful characters. I am desperately hoping that there will be a volume 6.

I was introduced to this series a couple of years ago by one of Deanna Raybourn's blog posts. I have absolutely loved reading it. I can see why Raybourn would recommend these books. March Middleton could have been one of her heroines. March is a sassy, unconventional Victorian woman, whose “secre...

I just didn't enjoy this as much as the others. And then the end! Really. Alas.

I have enjoyed all the Sydney Grice books. He is, by his own definition, THE best personal detective. Dirty, grimy, violent London is once again put under the microscope when Grice is charged to find a missing daughter and a serial, sadistic rapist. His goddaughter March Middleton is, as ever, his...

I like this series, but this one was just a wee bit too complicated and shifting. It had so many sub-plots and details, and maybe I am just not in a head space to follow them all. And the ending - not sure what that is about? Will this carry on?

Excellent again. First time I have given a five star rating.I love this series of stories the characters are brilliant the humour makes me laugh and the tragedy is felt. The nod to the Beatles in Abbey road was brilliant. P.S I love Molly do let anything happen to her .
