The Casebook of Inspector Blackstone

(A book in the Inspector Blackstone series)
An omnibus of novels by

Read books 1-3 in bestselling novelist Sally Spencer's thrilling Victorian mystery series for this first time in this special edition.


The body of a young man fished out of the Thames is of little interest to Londoners caught up in the excitement of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Yet to Inspector Sam Blackstone, the case is as puzzling as any he has ever come across.

As his investigation proceeds, Blackstone finds himself entering the world of the aristocracy and tramping the dangerous streets of London's Little Russia - where English law and order are not welcome...


A series of kidnappings seemed like straightforward, run-of-the-mill crimes at first, but Inspector Sam Blackstone soon realizes they are anything but.

This gang is so ruthless that it shocks even the hardened London criminal underworld.

Blackstone soon finds himself caught up in a game of cat and mouse, frantically trying to pin down the loose threads and find the lost prince before it's too late...


The theft of the fabulous Faberge golden egg from a Russian country estate goes far beyond the bounds of mere robbery.

The victim is the Prince of Wales, the egg itself a gift from the Russian Tsar - and if the Tsar takes offence at the Prince's carelessness in losing it, the delicate balance of power in Europe could be destroyed for ever.

Yet if Blackstone is investigating a simple robbery, why is there an attempt on his life the moment he sets foot in Russia? Is this priceless egg masking a deeper, darker secret... ?
