Together they form a formidable duo who have a unique knack of cracking the toughest cases with the most creative solutions and with the aid of some rather clever disguises.

c5w5jzlxeaaxi8kDrawing on the Victorian era, this story makes for a fabulous, farcical read, coupled with colourful, bustling spreads and a sumptuous gatefold, there’s nothing we don’t love about Inspector Brunswick.

Even the choice of language, by Jove!

c5w5j6zwyaesgilWill Brunswick and Nelson manage crack the case of the missing eyebrow or will this be an eye-ly (sorry) difficult mystery to solve?

And what on earth does a hairy caterpillar have to do with this whole affair?

unnamedAngela Keoghan and Chris Lam Sam have produced a set of endearing characters which will no doubt feature in a number of future stories yet to come and we look forward to reading more from Inspector Brunswick.
