‘Brimming with dark humour, fast-paced action … this is a top-class series that grows in stature with every new book’ Lancashire Evening Post

London Society takes their problems to Sherlock Holmes. Everyone else goes to Arrowood

South London, 1896. William Arrowood, Victorian London’s less salubrious private detective, is paid a visit by Captain Moon, the owner of a pleasure steamer moored on the Thames. He complains that someone has been damaging his boat, putting his business in jeopardy.

Arrowood and his trusty sidekick Barnett suspect professional jealousy, but when a shocking discovery is pulled from the river, it seems like even fouler play is afoot.

It’s up to Arrowood and Barnett to solve the case, before any more corpses end up in the watery depths . . .

‘An excellent historical thriller set in late Victorian London … highly recommended’ ***** Netgalley reviewer

‘Fantastic book. Beautifully written’ ***** Netgalley reviewer
