‘It is 1884 and London is gripped by fear after Fenian bombs explode on the underground railway and more are threatened. Detective Inspector Best is sent to Paris where these Irish Americans are plotting their next ‘outrage’ and obtaining arms for an uprising.

'intriguing, meticulously researched description of nineteenth-century London; its difficult to miss the chilling parallels between the Irish bombings in the 1880s and the London terrorist attack of 2005. A solid and very readable addition to the Inspector Best series.'
Booklist (American Library Association)

‘This is a highly enjoyable read. Inspector Best and his wife are engaging characters and the plot has many twists and turns.’
