Synopsis

In a time of grand airships and steam-powered cars, the death of a penniless young maid will hardly make the front page. But part-time airship waitress and music hall dancer Julia Bairstow is shattered by her sister's murder. When Lady Law, the most notorious private detective in Britain, offers to investigate the case pro bono, Julia jumps at the chance-even against the advice of Constable Al Grant, who takes her protection surprisingly to heart.

Lady Law puts Scotland Yard to shame. She's apprehended Jack the Ripper and solved countless other cold-case crimes. No one knows how she does it, but it's brought her fortune, renown and even a title. But is she really what she claims to be-a genius at deducting? Or is Al right and she is not be trusted?

Julia is determined to find out the truth, even if it means turning sleuth herself-and turning the tables on Lady Law...

The Mysterious Lady Law
Average rating
3 / 5
A quick read
August 3rd, 2013
Lady Law, a female version of Sherlock Holmes yet something doesn't add up about her. A quick read, predictable but I still enjoyed it all the same. I do wish that the protagonists' personal stories were expanded upon and the romance was more developed. The world was interesting, with mentions of famous Victorian characters from Quatermain to references from Journey to the centre of the earth. A world filled with possibilities and discoveries.
