Obsidian Dagger by Catherine Webb
Book DescriptionThere seem to be some odd things going on in the city of London, lately. Take the murders, for instance; quite peculiar. And those missing statues - what's going on there? And shouldn't Saint Paul's have a roof? Odd...Horatio Lyle, of course, is no stranger to...well, strangeness. In fact, he finds the lure of the unknown quite invigorating. But having just survived the most frightening episode in his life, the last thing he wants is that pompous Lord Lincoln sticking his nose in again and demanding that he take on another case the police are too thick to solve. Of course, His Lordship can be painfully persuasive at times, so it should come as no surprise that Lyle, along with his young proteges Tess (the thief) and Thomas (the toff), and his faithful hound Tate (the smart one), is soon up to his cravat in events of a singularly unscientific nature. Actually, it would all be terribly exciting if only they weren't trying to kill him.

Book Review: Obsidian Dagger by Catherine Webb - Reviewed by CloggieA (17 Jun 2014)
The Obsidian Dagger is the second book in the Horatio Lyle series by British author, Catherine Webb. As Horatio, Thomas, Tess and Tate work on their pressure-differential-velocity aeronautic device, their research is interrupted by Lord Lincoln, who insists that Her Majesty once again requires Lyle’s input into an important case. A ship’s captain and one of Lincoln’s agents have been murdered on board ship. As always, Lyle is given little to go on, but he certainly garners more information from the scene and the witness than does Inspector Vellum. Lyle finds himself on the trail of a priest and the contents of a stone sarcophagus, but soon, similar murders occur. It seems the very stones of London are coming to life and nowhere is safe. Webb fills her tale with wonderful inventions and fantastic happenings: underwater breathing apparatus, underwater lights, earth tremors, jumps from buildings, flights over the city, a frozen Thames, a great...
