Overall, a great first [mystery] novel from Will Thomas. The narrator (Thomas Llewelyn) is captivating from the start and lures you in to his adventure after being hired by Cyrus Barker, a well-respected detective with many networks.

Must admit, the novel was not very suspenseful, and we followed the main characters for quite some time without any lead, being introduced to possible suspects along the way. The style of writing was witty and fun, and the read was thoroughly enjoyable.
Recommend.

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.
