Reviews

'The series has achieved a significant following due in some part to the author's brisk and fluid style, sharp, short chapters adequately paced, and due in greater part to the humorously arrogant antics of the detective at the center of the series, one Sidney Grice. If you're a fan, you'll love the dynamism in this one' Bookgasm. 'Kasasian surpasses Grice's first two cases with a bizarre, clever, and constantly surprising whodunit' Kirkus Reviews. 'Another excellent installment in the Gower Street Detective mystery series! A more intricate mystery than the first two in the series. The writing is just as flawless, though, packed full of delicious dialogue, voice-fueled narration, and many laugh-out-loud moments. My adoration of Sidney and March remains unshaken. Heartily enjoyed!' Historical Novels Society. 'Not just another Sherlock Holmes pastiche, this series has its own allure that will attract fans of Will Thomas, Alex Grecian, and David Morrell' Library Journal. 'Exceptional. The Grand Guignol plot line is leavened with laugh-out-loud passages showcasing both Grice's literalness and disregard for social niceties' Publishers Weekly. 'Think Lemony Snicket meets Neil Gaiman for tea in Dracula's castle' Booklist (starred review). 'A fascinating roller coaster unrolls from the peculiar to the surreal and then the merely macabre then soaring back to surreal and bloody ... bizarre and frightening' Mystery People. 'This is one of those books where you will make sure you are not disrupted while reading ... Let's see where Martin Kasasian takes his story next!' Bookplank. 'The story rushes along at a ripping rate, embellished by Grice's wonderfully fierce wit and moments that make us wonder how it was all done. The novel itself may be a fast, easy read but the solution to the crime is complex and not as obvious as a couple of the twists' Bookbag.
