Private Inquiries Launch


Private Inquiries was launched at the Sherlock Holmes pub in London, a fitting venue in which to thank the real life PIs who shared their stories in the book, and located just around the corner from where Victorian sleuth Antonia Moser became the first British woman to open her own detective agency.


Private Inquiries and Zena: The Housewives’ Detective were launched on October 12th
