Publisher's Summary

It's 1815. Peter and Paul Skillen, identical twins and fearless thief catchers, stalk all who dare to walk in the shadow of the hangman. When they catch a notorious burglar, they claim a handsome reward and infuriate the Bow Street Runners, who believe they have a monopoly on policing in the capital.
Home Secretary Viscount Sidmouth faces a crisis. During a massacre of American prisoners of war at Dartmoor, two escape and come to London in search of retribution - and if their demands are not met, they’ll kill Sidmouth. The Runners compete fiercely with the twin detectives to bring the villains to justice in a compelling tale of murder, kidnap, revenge and political machination.

Horrible. Unless you like British drool.

Tireless yammering. If you like 18th century political jib jab then this is the one.
