Publisher's Summary

London, 1889. For Ira Adler, former rent-boy and present plaything of crime lord Cain Goddard, stealing back the statue from Goddard's blackmailer should have been a doddle. But inside the statue is evidence that could put Goddard away for a long time under the sodomy laws, and everyone's after it, including Ira's bitter ex, Dr. Timothy Lazarus. No sooner does Ira have the porcelain dog in his hot little hands, than he loses it to a nimble-fingered prostitute.
As Ira's search for the dog drags him back to the mean East End streets where he grew up, he discovers secrets about his own past, and about Goddard's present business dealings, which make him question everything he thought he knew. An old friend turns up dead, and an old enemy proves himself a friend. Goddard is pressing Ira for a commitment, but every new discovery casts doubt on whether Ira can, in good conscience, remain with him.In the end, Ira must choose between his hard-won life of luxury and standing against a grievous wrong.

A delicious delight!

There is more than a whiff of fan fic gone exceptionally right here. But the characters and scenario are so much fun and the narration is so good, that the nods to to Sherlock are just fun atmosphere. Original, well-wrought, light-hearted with a great narrator. I'm certain this will become one of very few books that make my repeat listening list. Mr. Battley, will you please please please record the other books in the series?!!!
