    Very enjoyable

    I love Barker and Llewelyn. My favorite thing is the interaction between the two of them and all the bits of their character the author shows you little by little. If you like a mystery in the 1800's you'll love this. It reminds me of the new Sherlock Holmes movies! I have read all the books in the series. It is a stand alone book but I say read "Some Danger Involved" first.

    Pleasant, pedestrian and naive.

    This is polite Christian fiction about some nasty Irish radicals who are out to bomb everyone from the Queen on down. If historical soap opera is your cup of tea, then look no further. But if you prefer your authors to do some solid historical background research then use it to teach us something about the period -- look elsewhere. One wearies of Cyrus Barker's omniscience (even Sherlock Holmes was puzzeled once in a while!) and his assistant Thomas Llewelyn's perpetual, dewy-eyed innocence.

    excellent historical mystery

    In 1884 London Enquiry Agent Cyrus Baker and his assistant Thomas Llewelyn are practicing martial arts exercises when they hear the explosion. Feeling they may be able to help, the two rush to the devastating scene of the Scotland Yard wing containing the newly formed Criminal Investigation Department Special Irish branch. As they assist the surgeon with field operations, the twosome learn of another bomb exploding at the Junior Carleton Club. The police brass at the Yard assumes both blasts were the work of the Irish Republican Brotherhood, a radical group willing to murder innocent civilians to foster a free Irish state.................. Inspector Poole informs Baker and Llewelyn that several other bombs were found before they ignited. Believing that the narrow focus on SIB is going to prove false, Baker quietly spreads the word that he and his associate are explosive experts to see who they can reel in. Not long afterward, the Invisibles want to employ them in a plan to explode London in TO KINGDOM COME...................... The latest Baker Victorian mystery is a terrific historical tale that uses the bias between the Scotland Yard leadership and SIB to provide insight to the beginning of the Irish issue that still haunts the Isles. The efforts to uncover and stop the Invisibles are cleverly developed to provide a fabulous thriller, but also shed addition light on the late ninetieth century. Baker is a fine sleuth while his assistant who narrates the tale is his Watson except much more innocent in worldly affairs. There will be no doubting Thomas that this is one of the best historical series on the market today.................... Harriet Klausner
