Review:

Praise for The Detective Wore Silk Drawers

“A gorgeous piece of period reconstruction . . . All the details of pickling and purging, gymnastics and ‘coming up to scratch’ worked into an exciting plot.”
The Daily Telegraph

“A rich and unusual mystery, with suspense enough for the most confirmed addict.”
Los Angeles Times

“A splendid thick-ear thriller in the literal sense.”
The Guardian

“Cribb was the first of the new-wave Victorian crime-fighters and is arguably still the best.”
Sherlock Holmes Magazine

“A strongly plotted mystery that will keep the reader in suspense until the very end. Soho Press is to be commended for re-releasing this outstanding series for a new generation of mystery readers.”
—Mysterious Reviews
