    . Mister Slaughter opens in the emerging metropolis of New York City in 1702, and proceeds to take both Matthew and the reader on an unforgettable journey of horror, violence, and personal discovery. The journey begins when Matthew, now an apprentice problem solver for the London-based Herrald Agency, accepts an unusual and hazardous commission. Together with his colleague, Hudson Greathouse, he agrees to escort the notorious mass murderer Tyranthus Slaughter from an asylum outside Philadelphia to the docks of New York.

    Story

    This book was a little odd after the totally "five star" first two books in the series. The majority of the book didn't have a mystery for Matthew Corbett to figure out - it was suspense all the way.

    Did it work as suspense? Absolutely. But I skipped ahead in places, which I couldn't do with the others because I might miss a clue, secure that I wouldn't lose the thread of the plot at all. I found myself wondering if maybe there was a tight deadline or something so the same care could not be put into the mystery for Matthew to solve. I also thought the resolution to the "Zed" storyline was baffling.

    I'm in the fourth book now, so my reaction to this book didn't put me off the series. But I'm hoping for a return to the form of Speaks the Nightingale and Queen of Bedlam. Fingers crossed.
