Quick Review: The Mangle Street Murders by M. R. C. Kasasian

Summary from Goodreads:

Gower Street, London, 1882: Sidney Grice, London’s most famous personal detective, is expecting a visitor. He drains his fifth pot of morning tea, and glances outside, where a young, plain woman picks her way between the piles of horse-dung towards his front door.

March Middleton is Sidney Grice’s ward, and she is determined to help him on his next case. Her guardian thinks women are too feeble for detective work, but when a grisly murder in the slums proves too puzzling for even Sidney Grice’s encyclopaedic brain, March Middleton turns out to be rather useful after all…

Set in a London still haunted by the spectre of the infamous Spring-heeled Jack, THE MANGLE STREET MURDERS is for those who like their crime original, atmospheric, and very, very funny

My Thoughts: 

This is the first book in The Gower Street Detective series, and I really enjoyed it.  Sidney Grice was an interesting if not particularly likeable character on the whole but March is quite the opposite. I am really looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
