“Falkirk writes like a dream; lean, tense with an air of historical accuracy. This six book series starring Blackstone is an undiscovered gem.”

"Of all the Blackstone books, I think this is my favourite, and not just because of the fascinating look beneath the streets of Georgian England in the late 1820s at the stinking miles of foul sewers and other tunnels that at times threatened to undermine the fabric of the city. Falkirk's London is dark, dirty and depressing but always entertaining. His pages are peopled with men and women who all feel real and the period slang never feels forced or out of place. The books are great examples of 1970s writing and stand favourable comparison with Georgette Heyer's earlier classics."
