Malk Williams deftly narrates an engaging Victorian mystery featuring the poor man's Sherlock Holmes. William Arrowood despises Holmes, yet he serves a similar role in the poorer parts of London. His newest case is more violent and grittier than any Holmes ever tackled. Along with his trusted assistant, Arrowood descends into the darkness in hope of finding a missing bride. Williams imbues Arrowood with arrogance and intelligence, and especially shines with varied voices. From lisps to subtle tonal shifts, he ensures that every character has a distinct, lively voice that's appropriate to the era and builds the atmosphere beautifully. The writing and the narration enhance each other to great effect, creating a dark but compelling take on the Victorian mystery. J.M.M.
