It's August of 1888 when a couple hoping to hire the infamous Myrtle Fearing Pell to discreetly look for their missing friend pay a visit to 40 West Tenth Street. Instead of Myrtle they are greeted by Harry Fearing Pell, younger sister to the infamous detective, and her good friend (DR. in training) John Weston.

Taking it upon herself to impersonate her famous sister, Harry and John take the case. What follows is a twisted and depraved tale of magic, murder and mayhem...

So ya, where to begin...I REALLY REALLY REALLY loved this book. It's like Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde got together and had a baby. The setting of 1800's New York City was fantastic. It's detailed and so atmospheric. It's almost like the setting is another character. The mystery kept me hooked (though I will say I DID figure out who the baddie was from early on.) It was full of interesting and well developed characters. The writing was fantastic. The plot was interesting and kept me turning the pages.

Not much else to say other than I enjoyed the heck out of this one and look forward to the next book in the series.

Carvanz Your review makes me curious about this. I love the mystery aspect but I've gotta have some romance. Is there any? And does this end on a cliffy?

No romance, sorry. It doesn't end on a cliffy, this mystery is wrapped upped but it is going to be a series of books with the same characters. :D
