Description


A thrilling collection of six Victorian mystery stories introducing the amateur criminologists based at The Septimus Club

It's London 1890, and a group of five amateur criminologists based at The Septimus Club in Piccadilly set out to investigate a series of mysterious crimes committed in the capital. Including a professor, a Lord, an ex-jockey, a talented rogue, and a society lady, the sleuths become embroiled in a murder at a theater, a lost poet, a racing scam, and even a serial killer. In these, their first six cases, the society take on some challenging crimes, relishing the thrill of the chase as enemies mount against them and old vendettas return. This collection is a treat for all fans of vintage crime fiction.
