“Readers rejoice and scoundrels take heed—the streets of Victorian London just got a little safer. Newcomers are sure to be absorbed into these warm, witty, and richly atmospheric historicals, and devotees will not be disappointed.” —Library Journal Cyrus Barker is undoubtedly England's premiere private enquiry agent. With the help of his assistant Thomas Llewelyn, he's developed an enviable reputation for discreetly solving some of the toughest, most consequential cases in recent history. But one evening in 1888, Robert Anderson, the head of Scotland Yard's Criminal Investigation Department (CID), appears at Barker's office with an offer. A series of murders in the Whitechapel area of London are turning the city upside down, with tremendous pressure being brought to bear on Scotland Yard and the government itself. Barker is to be named temporary envoy to the Royal Family with regard to the case while surreptitiously bringing his investigative skill to the case. With various elements of society, high and low, bringing their own agenda to increasingly shocking murders, Barker and Llewellyn must find and hunt down the century's most notorious killer. The Whitechapel Killer has managed to elude the finest minds of Scotland Yard—and beyond—he's never faced a mind as nimble and a man as skilled as Cyrus Barker. But even Barker's prodigious skills may not be enough to track down a killer in time.

A bombing injures private enquiry agent Cyrus Barker, leaving it up to his soon-to-be-married junior partner Thomas Llewelyn to find the person trying to murder them both before it's too late—in Blood is Blood the latest mystery in Will Thomas's beloved series. In 19th century London, Cyrus Barker and his associate Thomas Llewelyn are renowned private enquiry agents, successfully employed by the highest levels of Her Majesty's government as well as private citizens. Their success, however, has led to their acquiring a powerful group of enemies, many of whom are determined to have their revenge. At least one of those enemies is responsible for a bombing of their offices that puts Cyrus Barker into the hospital and endangers Thomas Llewelyn's rapidly forthcoming nuptials. To add to the confusion, Barker's long-lost brother Caleb turns up on the rubble of their doorstep not long after the not-quite-fatal bombing. Unsure of Caleb and warned about him by Barker, Thomas reluctantly accepts Caleb's help both with a new case that comes in as well as trying to pinpoint which of Barker's enemies is making a move against them. As Thomas works his way through their enemy list, someone else is winnowing down that list: one by one those enemies are dying. With time running out—and his bride-to-be reconsidering their marriage—Llewelyn must (with the sick-bed bound Barker's help) uncover the killer and the plot before it's too late.

At the request of Her Majesty’s government, private enquiry agent Cyrus Barker agrees to take on his least favorite kind of assignment—he’s to provide security for a secret conference with the French government. The conference is to take place on the private estate of Lord Hargrave on a remote island off the coast of Cornwall. The goal of the conference is the negotiation of a new treaty with France. The cover story for the gathering is a house party—an attempt to introduce Lord Hargrave’s two unmarried sons to potential mates. But shortly after the parties land at the island, Lord Hargrave is killed by a sniper shot, and the French ambassador’s head of security is found stabbed to death. The only means of egress from the island—a boat—has been sent away, and the means of signaling for help has been destroyed. Trapped in a manor house with no way of escape, Cyrus Barker and his assistant, Thomas Llewelyn, must uncover which among them is the killer before the next victim falls.

Ein verstörter junger Mann bittet den privaten Ermittler Cormoran Strike um Hilfe bei der Aufklärung eines Verbrechens, das er – so glaubt er – als Kind mit angesehen hat. Strike ist beunruhigt: Billy hat offensichtlich psychische Probleme und kann sich nur an wenig im Detail erinnern, doch er wirkt aufrichtig. Bevor Strike ihn allerdings ausführlich befragen kann, ergreift der Mann panisch die Flucht. Um Billys Geschichte auf den Grund zu gehen, folgen Strike und Robin Ellacott – einst seine Assistentin, jetzt seine Geschäftspartnerin – einer verschlungenen Spur, die sie durch die zwielichtigen Ecken Londons zu einem geheimen exklusiven Zirkel innerhalb des Parlaments und einem prachtvollen, doch düsteren Herrenhaus auf dem Land führt. Zugleich verläuft auch Strikes eigenes Leben alles andere als gradlinig: Er hat es als Ermittler zu Berühmtheit gebracht und kann sich nicht länger unauffällig hinter den Kulissen bewegen. Noch dazu ist das Verhältnis zu seiner früheren Assistentin schwieriger denn je – zwar ist Robin für ihn geschäftlich mittlerweile unersetzlich, ihre private Beziehung ist jedoch viel komplizierter ...
