Now Hiring: Victorian London Inquiry Agent

October 23, 2017 at 9:00 PM

Lately, I've been reading a series that reminds me of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. The Sherlock Holmes-like character is Cyrus Barker, and the John Watson character is Thomas Llewelyn. Cyrus Barker is an inquiry agent and this is an important distinction to him. Thomas is the narrator, and was on his last string before becoming Cyrus's employee. The idea of the series, written by Will Thomas, is similar to Holmes and Watson, but it's also different. Barker and Llewelyn are introduced in Some Danger Involved, set on the gritty streets of Victorian London where they work to solve a young scholar's murder. If you enjoy Holmes and Watson, I recommend you give Will Thomas's series a try. --Kristen Shepherd, Library Clerk
