About this product
- DescriptionA gripping debut from Alex Grecian, The Yard evokes London in the wake of Jack the Ripper. Victorian London is in the grip of a wave of crime and murder, with its citizens longer able to trust the police to protect them. The newly formed Murder Squad of Scotland Yard, made up of just twelve detectives, battles in vain against the tide of violence and cruelty. When the body of a Yard detective is found in a suitcase, his lips sewn together and his eyes sewn shut, it becomes clear that t even the police are safe from attack. Has the Ripper returned - or is a new killer at large? Walter Day, the squad's newest recruit, is assigned the case and finds a strange ally in the Yard's first forensic pathologist, Dr Bernard Kingsley. Can they find the murderer before it's too late? Or is London at the mercy of a serial killer even deadlier than Jack the Ripper? Fans of Interpretation of Murder and The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher will love Alex Grecian's first crime vel: The Yard. The Yard will take you into the dark side of Victorian London and offers a fascinating insight into the birth of CSI.
