Fresh, funny crime series for fans of Jasper Fforde and M.C. Beaton. 'Delightful and original ... A series that could well become a cult' DAILY MAIL. 125 Gower Street, 1883. Sidney Grice is London's foremost personal detective. Called away to Yorkshire, he leaves his ward, March Middleton, to run his house. But hearth and home hold little charm for March, who harbours dreams of becoming London's foremost, and first, lady detective. So, when a mysterious letter arrives from her long-lost uncle, she accepts his invitation to stay at the palatial Saturn Villa. Her new Uncle Tolly is sweet, eccentric and - come the morning - very, very dead. But March is not called upon to solve the case, instead she's in the frame for murder. Praise for DEATH DESCENDS ON SATURN VILLA: 'Think Lemony Snicket meets Neil Gaiman for tea in Dracula's castle' BOOKLIST. 'Packed full of delicious dialogue and many laugh-out-loud moments. My adoration of Sidney and March remains unshaken' HISTORICAL NOVELS SOCIETY. Read the whole series: THE MANGLE STREET MURDERS THE CURSE OF THE HOUSE OF FOSKETT DEATH DESCENDS ON SATURN VILLA THE SECRETS OF GASLIGHT LANE DARK DAWN OVER STEEP HOUSE.

About the Author:

M.R.C. Kasasian was raised in Lancashire. He has had careers as varied as a factory hand, wine waiter, veterinary assistant, fairground worker and dentist. He is the author of the much loved Gower Street Detective series, five books featuring personal detective Sidney Grice and his ward March Middleton. The first book in his new series, Betty Church and the Suffolk Vampire, is set in a sleepy seaside town during World War II and is out this year. He lives with his wife, in Suffolk in the summer and in Malta in the winter.

Review:

'The series has achieved a significant following due in some part to the author's brisk and fluid style, sharp, short chapters adequately paced, and due in greater part to the humorously arrogant antics of the detective at the center of the series, one Sidney Grice. If you're a fan, you'll love the dynamism in this one' Bookgasm. 'Kasasian surpasses Grice's first two cases with a bizarre, clever, and constantly surprising whodunit' Kirkus Reviews. 'Another excellent installment in the Gower Street Detective mystery series! A more intricate mystery than the first two in the series. The writing is just as flawless, though, packed full of delicious dialogue, voice-fueled narration, and many laugh-out-loud moments. My adoration of Sidney and March remains unshaken. Heartily enjoyed!' Historical Novels Society. 'Not just another Sherlock Holmes pastiche, this series has its own allure that will attract fans of Will Thomas, Alex Grecian, and David Morrell' Library Journal. 'Exceptional. The Grand Guignol plot line is leavened with laugh-out-loud passages showcasing both Grice's literalness and disregard for social niceties' Publishers Weekly. 'Think Lemony Snicket meets Neil Gaiman for tea in Dracula's castle' Booklist (starred review). 'A fascinating roller coaster unrolls from the peculiar to the surreal and then the merely macabre then soaring back to surreal and bloody ... bizarre and frightening' Mystery People. 'This is one of those books where you will make sure you are not disrupted while reading ... Let's see where Martin Kasasian takes his story next!' Bookplank. 'The story rushes along at a ripping rate, embellished by Grice's wonderfully fierce wit and moments that make us wonder how it was all done. The novel itself may be a fast, easy read but the solution to the crime is complex and not as obvious as a couple of the twists' Bookbag.
