Summary (From the publisher):

Welcome to a world...where Richard the Lion-Hearted did not die in the year 1199, but went on to found the mightiest and most stable empire in history...where the laws of Extra-Sensory Perception (ESP) have been codified, but those of physics remain unsuspected...where magic is a science, and science is an art.

Meet the greatest detective of all time, Lord Darcy, Chief Investigator for the Duke of Normandy, and his assistant, Master Sorcerer Scan O'Lochlainn. In a world where crime and the occult walk hand in hand, a world of murder and magic, they combine occult skills and uncanny powers of deduction to bring criminals to the King's Justice and thwart those who plot against the Realm.

It's urban fantasy by gaslight in a world where magic is an everyday occurrence, and no matter whether murder is committed by magic most foul or by more mundane means, crime still does not pay—as long as Lord Darcy is on the case.
