The Devil's Grin

The Devils Grin by Annelie Wendeberg.
Series: Kronberg Crimes
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform;(December 15, 2012)
ISBN-10: 1481262262


Amazon Review
London 1889. A dead man is found floating in the city's waterworks. Fearing an epidemic, the Metropolitan Police call upon bacteriologist Dr Anton Kronberg to examine the body. All signs point toward cholera having killed the man...but for faint marks around wrists and ankles.
Evidence for a crime is weak, and the police lose interest in the case. But Kronberg suspects that the dead man's final days had been steeped in cruelty. Soon, a second victim is found, and Kronberg gets embroiled in a web of abduction, abuse, and murder.
But catching a killer and staying alive would be easier if the doctor didn't have secrets of...her own.

The book pictured above is actually a trilogy in one book.  I just finished reading the first book of the trilogy, The Devil's Grin.
Dr. Anton Kronberg meets Sherlock Holmes. Together they try to solve a mystery. 
Dr. Anton is someone with secrets, that don't stay secrets very long from Sherlock. I also like that it's in "old England" about the time of Jack the  Ripper.
The story is fast reading and kept my interest.  I think the other two books in this trilogy will be enjoyable too.

I never fail to be amazed at your ability to find these Victorian murder mysteries, Pat. Never heard of this but it sounds really good! A female dr. in those days must've been unusual so it's presumably a bit different?
