This is an excellent read. I find I was intrigued by the characters from the start of the story through to the end. I want to find out more about Barker's past, as you are only given enough to whet your intellectual appetite. The introduction to Barker's London is fascinating, as we are transported to many places no one would be want to venture.

I only wish OPL had the 2nd book in the series. Give this series a gander, it's well worth the entertaining hours of reading.

The first book in the Barker and Llewelyn series

Historic mystery set among the Jewish community in Victorian London. You can tell the author did a lot of research to get the period detail right but the mystery could have used a little more attention. First in a series.
