The Affair of the Mysterious Letter by Alexis Hall offers a spin on the classic detective story. This one reminded me of A Darker Shade of Magic meets Sherlock Holmesโ€”olde world magic meets Victorian crime. Set in a fantastical world of magic and mystery, the book follows the adventures of Captain John Wyndham, a retired soldier turned private investigator, as he attempts to solve a case for his eccentric and brilliant friend, Shaharazad Haas.

The book is filled with twists and turns, memorable characters, and an amazing blend of science fiction and fantasy. The world-building was standout for me, and I also thoroughly enjoyed the witty narration from Captain Wyndhamโ€”and his prudent censorship of Haasโ€™ colorful languageโ€”his adventures with the unpredictable Haas were always entertaining and kept me on my toes! Perfect for fans of historical fantasy!
