    Victorian London is a cesspool of crime, and Scotland Yard has only 12 detectives - known as “The Murder Squad” - to investigate thousands of murders every month. Created after the Metropolitan Police’s spectacular failure to capture Jack the Ripper, The Murder Squad suffers rampant public contempt. They have failed their citizens. When Walter Day, the squad’s newest hire, is assigned the case of the murdered detective, he finds a strange ally in the Yard’s first forensic pathologist, Dr. Bernard Kingsley.

    Enjoyable annoying book

    First off, why over 100 chapters, plus several "interludes". Author with ADHD?

    I give this book overall 4/5 stars for the multitude of intere..Show More »

    When members of a prominent family disappear from a coal-mining village - and a human eyeball is discovered in a bird's nest - the local constable sends for help from Scotland Yard's new Murder Squad. Fresh off the grisly 1889 murders of The Yard, Inspector Walter Day and Sergeant Nevil Hammersmith respond, but they have no idea what they're about to get into. The villagers have intense, intertwined histories. Everybody bears a secret. Superstitions abound. And the village itself is slowly sinking into the mines beneath it.

    Geat, especially if you love historical mysteries!

    Fantastic narration at 1.25 speed. The story is Intriguing with Sherlock Holmes style mystery. A great listenn

    London, 1890: Four vicious murderers have escaped from prison, part of a plan gone terribly wrong, and now it is up to Walter Day, Nevil Hammersmith, and the rest of Scotland Yard's Murder Squad to hunt down the convicts before the men can resume their bloody spree. But they might already be too late. The killers have retribution in mind, and one of them is heading straight toward a member of the Murder Squad, and his family.

    Thin Plot with Lots of Gore

    I found this book very disappointing. I had read the first two books and they were quite good. The first in the series is by far the best.

    In The Devil's Workshop, London discovered that Jack the Ripper was back, sending the city - and Scotland Yard's Murder Squad - into chaos. But now it is even worse. Not only is the Ripper still at large, but so is another killer just as bad.

    Hard to put down

    Not going to say a lot because none of my reviews have been "helpful". There has to be a fifth book to come and I will anxiously be looking forward t..Show More »
