Scotland Yard's Murder Squad faces the most shocking case of its existence, in the extraordinary new historical thriller from the author of the acclaimed national best seller The Yard.
London, 1890: Four vicious murderers have escaped from prison, part of a plan gone terribly wrong, and now it is up to Walter Day, Nevil Hammersmith, and the rest of Scotland Yard's Murder Squad to hunt down the convicts before the men can resume their bloody spree. But they might already be too late. The killers have retribution in mind, and one of them is heading straight toward a member of the Murder Squad, and his family.
And that isn't even the worst of it. During the escape, the killers have stumbled upon the location of another notorious murderer, one thought gone for good but now prepared to join forces with them.
Jack the Ripper is loose in London once more.

Thin Plot with Lots of Gore
- Judith A. Weller
Violent and Lacks Coherence
I liked the first book very much, and the second one was good. They had good plots and were interesting for what they showed of the day. I liked the Doctor who was pushing the edge of forensic science. But this one was violent for the sake of shock value. The violence was so far unrealistic, especially for the medical capabilities of the day, that they lost all connection with reality. I am so sorry.
It was as if he brought in new threads at the end just to leave them loose. Nothing was finished. This one isn't worth reading. Good guys are bad, bad guys are over the top, and the motivations of everyone are absurd.
The reader did the best he could with the book.
I am sorry that I discovered a new author I liked only to be disappointed so much with this book. I seldom write reviews, but I hope the author reads this and gets back to the great book he started with.
