Part of a series, I came to this unexpectedly in the middle at No. 8.
A bit of a far fetched tale. A horse goes missing - this horse is a bit different, good at numbers!
At the same time two young girls go missing, presumably kidnapped, probably human trafficking and the best part is yet to come, during the Blitz a house in Bloomsbury actually goes missing.
Now to put the three strands together - they are connected though not obviously so is the work of our Inspector and his side kick.
This is a quirky read, lots of literary references splattered throughout the book, all adding a piquancy to the read. It is a detective story with a lot of suspense. I like the references to the author himself in the book all adding great interest. Also very descriptive.
Sent to me by Netgalley for an unbiased read, courtesy of Ipso.
