Fatal Enquiry By, Will Thomas

A detective story set in Victorian London, Fatal Enquiry takes it's readers on an adventure through the underbelly of London's streets.  Cyrus Barker and his assistant Thomas Llewellyn, run an enquiry service to help people who Scotland Yard has been unable to help.  Barker finds out that his arch nemesis Sebastian Nightwine is back in London.  Nightwine could only have devious intentions in mind.  Barker and Llewellyn must use all of their talents to stop Nightwine from completing his plans.  I really enjoyed this book. The heroes are resourceful and the villains are artfully manipulative.  Full of adventure, close calls, street gangs, secret societies, swindling, murder, assassins, and scandal.  It was an adventure that I was delighted to lose myself in.
