Arrowood_TwitterCover with quote copy

“Gangsters, pornographers, drunks and Fenian terrorists abound in this Victorian noir detective novel, which crackles with energy and wit.” The Times (of London) – Top 100 Summer Books

“Arrowood is the Victorian workingman’s answer to the higher-class Sherlock Holmes — a foul-mouthed, hard-drinking, shabby detective with a seriously bad attitude toward his more famous counterpart.” Seattle Times – 10 of the Summer’s Hottest Crime Fiction Titles

“Arrowood is a fantastic creation, sweating, beetroot red of face, his stomach bulging, but he works with subtlety — decoding emotions, reading expressions and gestures, seeking evidence in the things that are said, or unsaid, understanding human psychology ..” The Spectator

Chosen as one of the best crime/mystery novels of 2017 by The Seattle Times; The Strand Magazine; AudioFile Magazine. Pick of the Week (Daily Telegraph); Debut of the Month (lovereading.co.uk)
