Description
London, 1883. 125 Gower Street was once a house of justice, truth, and perspicacity. Now madness, murder, and scandal lurk in its empty halls. It is rumored that its owner-Sidney Grice, London's foremost personal detective-has been driven to the brink of despair. But, as with all good stories, we must begin at the beginning.When Sidney Grice journeys to Yorkshire to solve a mysterious death, March Middleton, his ward, is left to her own devices in a London swarming with danger and vice. Curiosity, as we know, has a dark edge. So when an intriguing letter leads March to the gates of the palatial Saturn Villa and into the nightmarish world of her long-lost uncle, it could be the beginning of an end for all.

        Starred review from January 11, 2016
        Set in London in 1883, Kasasian’s exceptional third outing for personal (i.e., private) detective Sidney Grice (after 2015’s The Curse of the House of Foskett) opens on a somber note, with a preface by Grice explaining that he had to finish the account of their current case written by his ward, March Middleton, because she has been “lost to this world.” Then, in a flashback, March reads a letter dated 1882 from a woman warning her to leave Grice’s home and suggesting he murdered her mother. While the reader is reeling from the implications of that reveal, a flashback to 1876 recounts the horrific fate of Marjory Gregory, who inexplicably slashed herself to death, but whose husband, who witnessed her end, insisted that she was murdered more than four years earlier. These teasers are but a prelude to a series of bizarre events that result in March apparently hacking to death a newly found relative. The Grand Guignol plot line is leavened with laugh-out-loud passages showcasing both Grice’s literalness and disregard for social niceties.
