I’ve been aware of this series for some time (especially their gorgeous covers) but never got around to reading one although I’m a great fan of historical mysteries. Theref...

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...

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 .

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?

His goddaughter March Middleton is, as ever, his...

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.

A pleasure to read, as always. Sharp and wickedly funny characters as well as a devastating ending after many twists and turns. What more could you possibly ask for in a crime novel? I am very much looking forward to the next instalment in the Mangle Street Murder series.
