Publisher's Summary

When Cyrus Barker and Thomas Llewelyn are hired to find a girl from the upper classes who has gone missing in the East End, they assume her kidnapping is the work of white slavers. But when they discover five girls have been murdered in Bethnal Green, taunting letters begin to arrive in Craig's Court from a killer calling himself Mr. Miacca.
Barker fears that Miacca might be part of the Hellfire Club, a group of powerful, hedonistic aristocrats performing satanic rituals. He must track the fiend to his hideout, while Llewelyn confronts the man who put him in prison.
Dodging muckrakers, navigating the murky Thames under cover of darkness, and infiltrating London's most powerful secret society, The Hellfire Conspiracy is another wild ride that "brings to life a London roiling with secret leagues, deadly organizations, and hidden clubs" (Ron Bernas, Detroit Free Press).

I'm love this series!!!

I just finished listening to the third book in this series and am so happy that I discovered it! It reminds me of the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson! I for one do not get bored with the observations, thoughts, musings, and conversations, that allow me to be right there with the characters! Great writing, character and story development, and what an outstanding narrator! He is amazing, and is for this series, what George Guidall is for the Craig Johnson novels, e.g.! Love this narrator!!!
Am going to look right now if there are more books in this series!

Thoroughly entertaining

Will Thomas's Victorian crime solving story and characters are thoroughly entertaining. I initially didn't believe that two detectives could share or should share the same context but readers soon find themselves shaking off the "Holmes hangover" and find the Hellfire Conspiracy most enjoyable.
