Tales of the Black Lion

In “Tales of the Black Lion” by Michael B. Coyle, http://goo.gl/BuP3e1 he takes two minor characters introduced into literature by Charles Dickens and devotes the book to telling the adventures by Blathers and Duff as they stumble through solving crimes with a pint of bitter or a cup of tea in the taproom of the Black Lion. Coyle captures the language, customs, and familiar sites of nineteenth century London in his storytelling. “Tales of the Black Lion” takes the reader on an adventure in history helping the two private detectives solve murder, theft, and kidnapping with several tales. For those who love the language of London’s lower class, the dialogue will entertain you in fast paced discussions leading to the solution of each crime.
