Product description

Review

A story of high intrigue and low politics, brutal murder and cunning conspiracies ... Tangy and rambunctious stuff--OBSERVER

Pyke is violent, vengeful and conflicted in the best tradition of detectives. His story takes in grisly murder and torture, and uses 1800s London in the same way that hard-boiled fiction uses Los Angeles as a mirror of a corrupt society--TIME OUT

Pyke is an intriguingly unfathomable character, and this is an excellent continuation of his dark journey--FINANCIAL TIMES

Gripping and atmospheric--DAILY EXPRESS

The novel drips with all the atmospheric detail of a pre-Victorian murder mystery - "pea-soupers," dingy lanterns and laudanum--THE TIMES

Book Description

A story of high intrigue and low politics, of brutal murder and cunning conspiracies, set against the backdrop of a fascinating period in British history and introducing an ingenious, pragmatic and unforgettable hero.
