Blackstone and the Wolf of Wall Street
by Sally Spencer

An Inspector Sam Blackstone mystery

August, 1900. William Holt, a reclusive millionaire businessman, has been kidnapped from his grand Coney Island home after the brutal murder of his two bodyguards. Soon, a huge ransom is demanded, and the victim’s two sons are given just days to find the money. Inspector Sam Blackstone, now seconded to the New York Police Department, and his partner, Alex Meade, are charged with solving the case, but they’ll need to keep their wits about them if they are to solve it in time…


Clever plotting, well-developed characters, and realistically drawn period detail make this a solid choice for historical-mystery fans


Spencer brilliantly plants clues throughout for the astute reader to spot. A plausible and resourceful hero complements a sophisticated plot, whose twists will remind golden age fans of John Dickson Carr's classic puzzlers

Publishers Weekly Starred Review

The case of the banker in the bunker provides enough wit, puzzlement and class warfare to delight the most devoted Blackstone fan
