In 1882 there is a detective named Sidney Grice working in London. A young lady whose father has died arrives in London as his ward. She is March Middleton and she wants to share the work of detection with her guardian. The pair are both interesting characters and there are certain echoes of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in their attitudes, behaviours and backgrounds. They have various quirks such as March's predilection for cigarettes and gin and Sidney's vegetarian diet and obsession with getting supplies of tea to drink. He likes his tea black describing milk as "the mammary excretions of cattle" and he prefers to be called a personal detective as he feels that the term private detective should be reserved for bedrooms.
This is described as the Gower Street Detective Book 1 so, obviously more adventures are planned for March Middleton and Sidney Grice.
