An Eye for PIs: Gumshoe Fiction is Still Alive and Thriving

J. Kingston Pierce | Kirkus Reviews

“Marston, familiar for his novels about “Railway Detective” Robert Colbeck (A Ticket to Oblivion) and World War I–era Scotland Yarder Harvey Marmion (A Bespoke Murder, Deeds of Darkness), brings his typical light touch and fondness for interweaving plot lines to Shadow of the Hangman, and does a superior job of illuminating his twin protagonists”

Book Review: Shadow of the Hangman by Edward Marston

Yvonne | A Darn Good Read Book Review

“I enjoyed this first offering of the new series from Edward Marston. It has a great line-up of characters made more interesting by the protagonists being twin brothers, identical in looks but dissimilar in nature.”

“I’m looking forward to seeing what the Skillen brothers get up to next and the continued rivalry between them and the Bow Street Runners, which I’m sure will be another entertaining read. The Bow Street Rivals has all the elements to be another successful series for Edward Marston.”
