The highly anticipated second novel in the charming, sharply
plotted Victorian crime series starring a detective duo to rival Holmes and
125 Gower Street, 1882. Sidney Grice once had a reputation
as London’s most perspicacious personal detective. But since his last case led
an innocent man to the gallows, business has been light. Listless and
depressed, Grice has taken to lying in the bath for hours, emerging in the
evenings for a little dry toast and a lot of tea. Usually a voracious reader,
he will pick up neither book nor newspaper. He has not even gathered the
strength to reinsert his glass eye. His ward, March Middleton, has been left
to dine alone.
Then an eccentric member of a Final Death Society has the
temerity to die on his study floor. Finally Sidney and March have an
investigation to mount—an investigation that will draw them to an eerie house
in Kew and to the mysterious Baroness Foskett. Download and start listening now!
