Publisher's Summary

Scotland Yard's Murder Squad - and Jack the Ripper - return in the extraordinary new historical thriller from the author of the acclaimed national best seller The Yard.
In The Devil's Workshop, London discovered that Jack the Ripper was back, sending the city - and Scotland Yard's Murder Squad - into chaos. But now it is even worse. Not only is the Ripper still at large, but so is another killer just as bad.
For Inspector Walter Day, it has been a difficult time. His wife has given birth to twins, his hostile in-laws have come to stay, and a leg injury has kept him at his desk. But when the Harvest Man begins killing, carving people's faces off their skulls, the Yard knows they need Day in the field.
Not so Sergeant Nevil Hammersmith. Rash actions have cost him his job, but that doesn't stop his obsessive hunt for the Ripper. When the mutilated bodies of prostitutes start turning up again, Hammersmith enlists the help of a criminal network to stop Saucy Jack, his methods carrying him further and further from the ideals of the Yard, so far in fact that he may never be able to find his way back.
Of course the Ripper's been playing a game with him - with Walter Day as well. He is pushing both of them to their limits, and what happens when they get one can say.

Hard to put down

Not going to say a lot because none of my reviews have been "helpful". There has to be a fifth book to come and I will anxiously be looking forward to it.

- J. Lindsey "In Anchorage AK since 2007. Found audio books in 1996. I remember the huge boxes of cassettes in the mail! Sometimes w/a faulty cassette!"

Feel Cheated

I loved this series but feel cheated at the ending of this book. If an author cannot write a story good enough to keep readers wanting more the author should do something else. This is a cheap cliffhanger ending on par with " it was all a dream" type writing Makes the main character weak and no more than a pawn to try to sell the next book. I am incredibly disappointed in Mr. Grecian.
