David Stuart Davies – The Darke Chronicles
The Darke Chronicles introduces the aristocratic and flamboyant Victorian detective Luther Darke who tackles seemingly inexplicable mysteries that have baffled Scotland Yard. The seven cases that feature in this volume take Darke into a world of deception, murderous sleights of hand, spiritualism, vampires, curses and phantoms in fin de siècle London. Sometimes accompanied by his feminist lover, Carla, or his friend at Scotland Yard, Inspector Edward Thornton, Darke unravels the most challenging of puzzles. If you like Sherlock Holmes, Luther Darke is your man.
