Publisher's Summary

There are many bad days in Edinburgh police's subdivision 'The Commission for the Elucidation of Unsolved Cases Presumably Related to the Odd and Ghostly'. And in the pantheon of the worst days - today takes the podium. 

Because English Inspector Ian Frey and his Scottish boss 'Nine-Nails' McGray are called into a meeting in the middle of the night with none other than the prime minister himself. 

And he tells them that Queen Victoria - the most powerful woman in the world - wants them both dead.

Amazing as always!

Another thrilling adventure by Frey and McGray. With each new book the stakes just keep getting higher, I can't wait to find out what's in store in the next one!

Another fantastic tale of Nine Nails and ‘Percy’

I pre-ordered this and downloaded it immediately as it was released, and it was absolutely worth the wait. Once again the narration was first class, Andy Secombe has a gift and I dearly wish he could narrate other novels I have heard butchered by those unable to perfect accents across the British Isles. The story line followed on from the previous novels (would recommend reading these in order) and the diligent research DeMuriel puts into the historical aspects of these books makes them gripping listens/reads. Without giving too much away for those who haven’t listened I truly hope that we have more to enjoy from this adorably mismatched pair of Victorian Detectives.

This series just gets better and better!!

I remember listening to the first book in this series, I thought it was good and I was very impressed with Andy Secombe as a narrator. Every book since then has just excelled and exceeded the previous one and now when I see that Oscar de Muriel is releasing a book, I pre-order and count down the days to start listening!! I REALLY can not recommend this series enough!!! de Muriel and Secombe are a winning combination and nine nails and Frey have most definitely won a soft spot in my listening library!! Please keep writing!!!!! :-)

A story you just want to believe, with amazing characters!

I have read all the books in this series so far, and this is one of my favourites by far! Oscar de Muriel has outdone himself with this book! The plot is outstanding, the characters are lovable and consistent with storylines you just want to be true! I can honestly say if you are looking for a story with an excellent plot as well as being read by someone who can without fail Bring every character to life; then this is the book that you have been looking for.

Poor in comparison with rest of the series.

I didn't enjoy this book much at all, the banter between the two main characters was what made the books fun! This relationship became less over the series, and my enjoyment waned along with it! This book had a disjointed story, and really it was plain daft! The ending was just so stupid I lost patience with it! Won't be buying any more of the stores.

Another excellent installment in this series!

As ever, the narrator brings the voices of the characters to life in a funny and thrilling mystery.
