Ten doors down from the home of a world famous ‘consulting detective’ lives twelve-year-old Hemlock Jones, and her recently arrived housemate and unwitting companion, Edward Whitlow.

Hired to ‘demystify’ the mystery of a man’s murder by a terrifying angelic spectre, Hemlock and Edward’s investigations will lead them all over Victorian London, uncovering bizarre and deadly foes, figures from Hemlock’s hidden past, and a plot to take over the city…

Hemlock Jones & The Angel of Death is the first of the Hemlock Jones Chronicles, a series of detective adventures for children and adults, set in Victorian London.

 

MY REVIEW

As soon as I read the blurb for this book I was intrigued and couldn’t wait to get started as soon as I got my hands on a copy.

The story is brilliant it is so well written that I didn’t want to stop reading it or put it down.  The book is aimed at children and adults alike and I am sure that both will be massive fans of the story.  It is easily one I will read for a second or third time and that is very unusual for me.

Everything about the book worked for me and I thought the whole thing was excellent – the characters, time period, setting, writing style, plot and pace I thought were just superb!

Five stars from me – I really, really enjoyed it – it was a pleasure to read!!
