Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A flawed but engaging hero…The plot spins from peril to twist and back with real panache.” Times (London) on Arrowood
“Fans of Sherlock Holmes might appreciate an alternate view of Victorian London from the perspective of people struggling to survive.” Library Journal on Arrowood
“A tale built on a wonderful premise: a downscale Sherlock Holmes for the rest of us.” Kirkus Reviews on Arrowood
“Fiercely edgy…Finlay captures the filth, frustration, and dark humor of the Victorian-era slum…Doyle’s fans will be entertained.” Booklist on Arrowood
“Mick Finlay’s atmospheric, detailed, singular London is a terrifying place I hope to return to again and again.” Ross Armstrong, author of The Watcher, on Arrowood
