BOOK OF THE WEEK

Here is this week’s book recommendation

The Extraordinary & Unusual Adventures of Horatio Lyle, by Catherine Webb

 

‘Horatio Lyle is Sherlock Holmes crossed with Thomas Edison as written by Terry Pratchett: witty, action-packed and perfect for fans of detective stories, fantasy stories and good old-fashioned adventure.’

In Victorian London at the height of the industrial revolution, Horatio Lyle is a former Special Constable with a passion for science and invention. He’s also an occasional, but reluctant, sleuth. The truth is that he’d rather be in his lab tinkering with dangerous chemicals and odd machinery than running around the cobbled streets of London trying to track down stolen goods.
