BOOK REVIEW

THE MANGLE STREET MURDERS by M.R.C. Kasasian
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Feb. 6, 2014

"Kasasian's debut is an unflinching look at the darker side of Victorian London and a portrait of a heroine strong enough to stand up to a thoroughly disagreeable detective. Clever plotting, morbid humor and colorful characters are a greater treat for the mind than the heart—or the stomach."
A Victorian detective solves a mystery but meets his match in his independent-minded young ward. Read full book review >

THE CURSE OF THE HOUSE OF FOSKETT by M.R.C. Kasasian
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Jan. 14, 2015

"Kasasian's sequel is as witty and imaginative as his debut (The Mangle Street Murders, 2014), if you like your humor dark and your delights grotesque. Animal lovers may not be the only readers taking refuge in Beatrix Potter if they make it past the first few chapters."

DEATH DESCENDS ON SATURN VILLA by M.R.C. Kasasian
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: March 15, 2016

DARK DAWN OVER STEEP HOUSE by M.R.C. Kasasian
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Dec. 5, 2017

"In their fifth adventure, Kasasian's mismatched detective team (The Secrets of Gaslights Lane, 2017, etc.) is in fine form for fans who like convoluted plots, lovingly detailed gore, and mean-spirited humor. The squeamish should approach with caution or not at all."
A Victorian detective with a unique style and the ward who doubles as his assistant track down a serial rapist. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE SECRETS OF GASLIGHT LANE by M.R.C. Kasasian
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: April 11, 2017

"Kasasian faithfully imitates the tale's Gothic forbears in both bloody horror and florid prose. Readers might be better served by digging into the original Victoriana."
A fourth case for pre-eminent personal detective Sidney Grice and his ward and assistant, Miss March Middleton (Death Descends on Saturn Villa, 2016, etc.), delves into grisly murders old and fresh in Victorian London. Read full book review >
