I had read the other Anna Kronberg books and was not disappointed with this one. The story begins five years before the Devil's Grin and tells of how Garrett and Anna met, courted and became entrenched in politics of 19th century Victorian slums in their investigation of the disappearance of a prostitute. The attention to detail was incredible and even though I knew what would happen in the Moriarty series with Kronberg and Holmes, I couldn't help but root for Garrett and Anna. A definite must-read

Not bad. Good value at 99cents.

Read the positive comnents and gave it a shot. This is a short story (about 150 pages), a prequel to A Devil's grin. I enjoyed it and will be reading the next book. Happy reading!

This book can stand alone even though it is the set-up for an existing series. I liked the characters and story development. The historical perspective on the London slums was a plus, though graphic warning is well deserved, and you can skim over if necessary. I am interested to see where this prequel leads, though I'm hesitant since apparently the remainder of the series is a Holmes/Moriarty mystery. Would love to know if the side characters in this story continue in the next.

Keeps you hooked to the end. I can't wait for the next book to see where it goes.

Written with much respect to the characters. The style of writing I found immersive and compelling. Definitely want to read more about Anna, a heroine if there ever was one.

The ending just makes me want more!

This is a very well-written and moving tale. The characters ring true from top to bottom; however, the most interesting part of the book is the chilling and realistic portrait of St Giles and the dwellers thereof. I have never read any non-fiction accounts of St Giles, but the author's account rings grittily true. This stays with you.

Quick easy read. Loved the characters.

This was an interesting view into the extreme poverty in post Victorian England, you can almost smell the smells and feel the dispair. But characters seemed to pop in like I should already be familiar with them and I had trouble relating them to the story.

Couldn't get past page 28.

The beginning felt like it jumped around time-wise so at first it was hard to follow. Overall it was a good read and was interesting. I would consider getting the next book.

This is the introductory prologue to the Devils Grin series. It adds greatly to the character development of those we meet in the series. J M Lydon

I need to read more! This is not for the faint of heart nor for the squeamish reader. But what a great story! I highly recommend this book and will be reading more of her books.
