The House on Half Moon Street Reviews

  • Gail Wylde

    I enjoyed this Victorian tale of Leo, who was born Charlotte but knows he really is a man. It's full of murder and mayhem and hopefully is the start of of a great new series.

    Thanks to Pigeonhole and Alex Reeve for the chance to read this book.

  • Leesa

    I received an uncorrected proof of House on Half Moon Street and although I don't read crime novels the plot summary was so interesting I couldn't pass up the opportunity.

    I was particularly interested to see how Reeve would write our protagonist, Leo and his experiences as a transgender man living in Victorian London. I did find sometimes that there was a lot of focus on Leo being very conscious of hiding his body and not being found out which felt unnecessary. I did however find myself emotiona

    This is a thought provoking historical crime drama with Leo Stanhope, a transgender coroner's assistant, set in Victorian London. Born Charlotte Pritchard, he has 2 siblings, and feels an absolute conviction he is a man, cruelly made to live within the body of a woman, he leaves home at 15 years old, unable to live a lie any longer. He is estranged from his family and only connects with his sister, Jane, although she is not happy to see him. It begins with the arrival of the drowned body of Jack ...more

    I can't recommend this book enough. It was an absolute pleasure to read. Such a great idea to set it in Victorian London, and the descriptions made the setting come alive. I felt I was there.

    Leo makes a great hero, and I am delighted to hear it is going to be a series. He was so sensitively written and it showed an amazing understanding of what it must have been like to be a transgender person at the time. Leo risks arrest and incarceration for daring to be himself. I loved it and think everyone

    Set in the 1800s in London, debut author Alex Reeve transports the reader through main character Leo (born Charlotte), a woman in the disguise of a man. Naive and vulnerable, Leo falls in love with a prostitute, Maria, with whom Leo has had a two-year relationship, meeting every fortnight at the brothel on Halfmoon Street, where she works. When Maria fails to show up for their first official date away from the brothel, and her body shows up at the morgue, Leo is accused of her murder. What follo ...more

    I was given this in exchange for an honest review from Netgalley.

    Leo Stanhope has fallen in love with the wrong girl and hiding a big secret. He may dress and act as a man but he's a woman. Then the love of his life is found dead and he is accused of the crime. Can he find out the truth whilst keeping his own secrets.

    This was a really interesting read with a clever plot. The story is detailed and atmospheric. The mystery is clever with many twists that keep you unsure until the end.

    Leo is suc

    'The truth is like clay: you mould it to what you want, and then it hardens.’

    Set in London during the 1880s, this novel is a blend of historical and crime fiction with an intriguing protagonist. Leo Stanhope works as an assistant to a London coroner. Leo is a frequent visitor to a brothel on Half Moon Street and has fallen in love with Maria Milanes who works there. Maria seems to reciprocate his feelings, and Leo would like to take their relationship further. But Leo has a secret. He was born C

    Really enjoyable and at times quite intense portrayal of life in London in the 1880s for poor women and for those who challenge Victorian conceptions of sexuality and gender identity. Leo is a wonderful hero with the weight of the world on his shoulders. I'm really pleased to hear that we will see more of him. Review to follow shortly on For Winter Nights.
