Love the Gower Street Detective books – meet detective Sidney Grice and his guardian March Middleton and try solving their next mystery!
Recently I have finished the first three books of a series of books of the ‘Gower Street Detectives’ by M.R.C. Kasasian. I came by the books through a friend’s recommendation, because previously I had never heard of these detectives. We should all be glad to have such friends! Thou shalt not judge a book by its cover, so the saying goes, but look at them and don’t you just love them? The letter type, the feeling of suspense, the bold colours.. they all add to that great feeling of having, or wanting, to own the books.
It is the year 1882 and March Middleton moves to London to live with her guardian Sidney Grice, one whom she has never met before and apparently is a famous detective, albeit it with less heart as intelligence. Where have we seen that before? Yes, it is a bit like Holmes and Dr Watson, and in effect, Dr Watson appears in the first book saying that “he is inspired by her book on her father and is looking to write a similar one”. The three books so far are a great read, very likeable and I can’t wait and am looking forward to the fourth, being ‘The Secrets of Gaslight Lane’.
The Gower Street Detective Series:
Book #1: The Mangle Street Murders; Book #2: The Curse of the House of Foskett; Book #3: Death Descends on Saturn Village; Book#4: The Secrets of Gaslight Lane
