Lost in mid-Atlantic,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Yard: Scotland Yard Murder Squad Book 1 (Kindle Edition)
I was looking forward to reading this book but I just could not ignore the incongruities. American slang, unrealistic characters with absurd names and disassociated social class order that could only exist in a Hollywood movie view of Victorian England. Even the Metropolitan Police period rank structure is incorrect. I appreciate I sound a little pompous here but I seek out quality historical novels and am afraid that this particular authors attempt at recreating London post-Ripper social discomfort simply does not work. With respect I would avoid.
