Publisher's Summary

London, 1889. Jack the Ripper’s reign of terror is finally over, but a new one is just beginning…. In the late Victorian era, as many as 96 bodies a month are pulled from the Thames, the majority of them with their throats slit. The broken body of a Scotland Yard detective is found in a steamer trunk, his eyes and lips sewn shut. Inspector Walter Day's first assignment is to catch the killer.

Simply a good read.

For a crime novel reader this is a good read, entertaining and not too far fetched portraying characters well and reflecting on medical conditions as a compassionate person would at the time. I was a little worried that it would dwell on Jack the Ripper and various theories about who he was but it doesn't. The book pitches it just right in the main only mentioning him where it relevant and reflecting on the mood of the general population of London following a time of Jack. So story line good, characters good and pace good too. It's all good really.

Loved, loved, loved this

What did you like most about The Yard?

Great story, interesting historical detail, brilliantly interwoven multiple plots.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Yard?

The discovery of the boy's body in the chimney - heartbreaking and horrific to think children were treated like this only a century ago.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Blackleg's flirtation with Hammersmith's gullible landlady

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A grisly post-Ripper thriller?

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the next book by this author. Great narration too.
