This is the first book in this series, set in late 19th century Toronto, Ont., and it is really very good, especially in its discussion of the differences in how the various classes lived, were treated etc. I am going to read all of the series, if I can find them. "Under the Dragon's Tail" is the second one which I read before this one. The plots, characters etc. are sequential and I recommend reading them in order.
