Publisher's Summary

When an Italian assassin's body is found floating in a barrel in Victorian London's East End, enquiry agent Cyrus Barker and his assistant Thomas Llewelyn are called in to investigate. Soon corpses begin to appear all over London, each accompanied by a Mafia Black Hand note. As Barker and Llewelyn dig deeper, they become entangled in the vendettas of rival Italian syndicates - and it is no longer clear who is a friend or foe.

    "Favorite new series!"

    Being a historical fiction and crime/mystery fan, these books are what I like best about reading. Period detail, true events in the background, and wonderfully interesting characters who are developing nicely and fit together a la Sherlock and Holmes, but quite different in all the right ways. Brilliantly brought to life by the narrator! Keep them coming!!!

    "The best yet"

    Thomas & Ferguson hit the mark again, this time adding a little bit more - but not focused on - personal info about Barker & Llewellen. The way this story ended could be the end of the series but leaves it open and obvious about how Barker regards his trainee.

    Any additional comments?

    As always an engaging story line with characters that are quirky and endearing. Another solid performance by Antony Ferguson who brings each unique character to life. After each concluded book in this series I feel like I have to wait until old friends come again. This series just gets better and better.
