The Mangle Street Murders

by M. R. C. Kasasian

London, 1882.  21-year-old March Middleton has just arrived in the city and is eager to meet her new guardian, Sidney Grice.

Grice is a self-proclaimed "personal detective."  Think Sherlock Holmes. 

March's arrival in London coincides with the brutal stabbing of Sarah Ashby.  At the behest of Sarah's mother, Grace Dillinger, Grice takes on the case.  All eyes are on William, Sarah's husband.

March is sure of William's innocence, but Grice is not.  What follows is an intriguing investigation that is full of twists and turns.

I really enjoyed this historical mystery.  March has spunk, and Grice has wit.  They make a great team.
