Bow Street Uncovered,
This review is from: The Thief-Taker: Memoirs of a Bow Street Runner (Mass Market Paperback)
I have a been a confirmed Anglophile all my life,with special interest in British authors.I've read about Bow Street,& the runners,in other novels,so imagine my delight to find a book that centers on that long-ago institution.
The characters are well-drawn,& the plot was ingrossing.The book also presents a glimpse into 18th century England,which added to the enjoyment of the story. I enjoy mysteries that don't telegraph the ending,& this one more than met my expectations.
