Review

'An immensely enjoyable series for fans of historical fiction and crime novels alike' Guardian.

'Easter has chosen his setting wisely, creating what I think may be a new sub-genre - naval-historical-crime - and he should find a readership in all three camps ' Eurocrime.

'evok[es] the sights and smells of the river and its grubby residents, which brings the story alive in a manner that has you turning pages in quick succession' Newham Recorder.

'Patrick Easter [...] brought alive the alleys, dives, waterways and dank doings of the Port of London in its swarthy prime at the tail-end of the 18th century' Wharf.

Product Description

It is March 1799. A sunken lugger in the Pool of London reveals a grisly secret: The bodies of two men entombed in the crew's cabin. Suspicion falls on a third member of the crew seen fleeing the scene. He had a known motive for murder.

Against the background of a nation at war with Napoleon, River Surveyor Tom Pascoe finds his own life under threat as he digs deeper into the case. He uncovers the existence of French agents in London whose task is to strike a deadly blow to the heart of the capital and undermine England's ability to continue the war.

Tom's job is further complicated by the presence of a new member of the police crew with a shocking secret of his own...

4.0 out of 5 stars Growing into the Gap 16 April 2012
Format:Hardcover
I enjoyed Patrick Easter first outing of Tom Pascoe and for me his second adventure for me is going in the right direction of establishing a very good series and filling the gap left by Andrew Pepper`s Pyke.Patrick Easter captures the atmosphere of the river Thames of 1799 London and added to a action pact adventure set against the back drop of the war against Napolean you have a page turner that is hard to put down.I hope we will have more of Tom Pascoe and i for one can not wait.

Four stars only because five is so unusual for me.

There was nothing I disliked about this book which appealed to me because of the period it is set in and it was a rattling good story.

Would I recommend it - definitely.
