5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the sequel!, 11 Aug. 2008
This review is from: The Blood Detective (Paperback)
A brilliant book bursting with new ideas and a high-tension plot that keeps the pages turning right up until the heart-stopping climax. The story weaves seamlessly from a modern day serial killer investigation to the sinister events of more than a century ago. The writer shows a real relish for London old and new, bringing to life the dark and teeming streets of the Victorian city and the dusty but intriguing world of the various libraries, warehouses and depositaries where the past refuses to stay buried. Surprisingly, it's the headlong charge through the outwardly dull-seeming world of genealogical records that proves the most captivating element in the hunt for the killer. There are vivid, atmospheric descriptions of the labyrinthine places where these secrets can be uncovered that make you want to start hunting yourself - although it's far better to do it in the company of Detective Inspector Grant Foster and genealogist Nigel Barnes.
