In a parallel Victorian London a crown investigator unravels mysteries around a group of missing females and various murders. Lending a fair amount to Sir Conan Doyal and his Sherlock Holmes and to the League of Extrodonary Gentlemen. Easy reading, good plot, nice charaterisation. Looking forward to the next one.
