From the Publisher:
Standing out for his unique position of having been both an Oxford student and an Oxford prison inmate, down-on-his-luck Welshman Thomas Llewelyn of Victorian London takes a dubious job under private investigator Cyrus Barker, who is examining the crucifixion murder of a Jewish scholar.Standing out for his unique position of having been both an Oxford student and an Oxford prison inmate, down-on-his-luck Welshman Thomas Llewelyn of Victorian London takes a dubious job under private investigator Cyrus Barker, who is examining the crucifixion murder of a Jewish scholar. Reprint. 50,000 first printing.An atmospheric debut novel set on the gritty streets of Victorian London, Some Danger Involved introduces detective Cyrus Barker and his assistant, Thomas Llewelyn, as they work to solve the gruesome murder of a young scholar in London's Jewish ghetto. When the eccentric and enigmatic Barker takes the case, he must hire an assistant, and out of all who answer an ad for a position with "some danger involved," he chooses downtrodden Llewelyn, a gutsy young man with a murky past.

As they inch ever closer to the shocking truth behind the murder, Llewelyn is drawn deeper and deeper into Barker's peculiar world of vigilante detective work, as well as the heart of London's teeming underworld. Brimming with wit and unforgettable characters and steeped in authentic period detail, Some Danger Involved is a captivating page-turner that introduces an equally captivating duo.

Annotation:
When a Jewish student's crucified body is discovered in Victorian London, the Jewish Board of Deputies hires "enquiry agent" Cyrus Barker. He and his new assistant, Thomas Llewelyn, late of Oxford University--and Oxford Prison--must discover if the murderer's motive was anti-Semitism, or something far more personal.
