Lots of fun! I loved this energetic, whistle-stop adventure set in Sussex between the wars, in which eccentric but likeable paranormal detectives Lyons and Hound carry out another of their top-secret investigations into the 'incident' of the title. Beginning as a Sherlock Holmes-type mystery, the story takes us on an adventure that includes mythical creatures, a mysterious asylum and characters that 'bear' more than a passing resemblance to certain story-book favourites...
