Will Thomas Speaks of Victorian Crime at SCENE OF THE CRIME

Will Thomas’s Victorian London: Barker and Llewelyn at Your Service

Will Thomas is the author of the popular historical fiction series featuring detective Cyrus Barker and his apprentice, Thomas Llewelyn, set in
London and parts of the British Isles in the latter part of the
nineteenth century. The series starts off with Some Danger Involved, and is continued with To Kingdom Come, The Limehouse Text, The Hellfire Conspiracy, and last year’s The Black Hand. The books deal with vital topics of the day, from anti-Semitism to anarchism.

The books have received critical praise. Of Kingdom Come, Booklist noted, “Thomas places his cast of likeable even heroic characters within a complex political minefield and the waits for the explosion.
Intense and insightful.” The Denver Post declared the same novel a “thorough delight.” Library Journal noted of The Hellfire Conspiracy: “Thomas
knows his Victorian London and his way around the makings of a great
mystery. Fans of Victorian historicals will snap this up.” The New York Times Book Review
said of the Barker and Llewelyn books, ‘Will Thomas explores wonderful
uncharted territory…true believers who go along for the ride will hate
to see it end.”
