Publisher's Summary

Crime-scene photographers Sarah, Hugh, and Mick are summoned to the goriest crime scene they've ever encountered. A pub owner named Harry Warbrick has been found hanged. His murder becomes a sensation because he was England's top hangman. 

Sir Gerald, owner of the Daily World, announces that they‚ meaning Sarah and her friends‚ will investigate and solve Warbrick's murder before the police do. She and her friends discover a connection between Warbrick's murder and the most notorious criminal he ever executed: Amelia Carlisle.

Something happened at Amelia's execution. The Official Secrets Act forbids the seven witnesses present to divulge any information about it. But Harry had a bad habit of leaking tips to the press. What is the secret, and who hanged the hangman?

Formulaic, Alas

I really like this author, but this new series is quite formulaic and not a very interesting listen.

Good story but......

I don't normally write reviews but I felt I had to this time.
The stories in this series are good BUT the author is American I believe and hasn't done much research into English words or phrases. It's a doorstep NOT a stoop. It's a pavement NOT a sidewalk. A phrase like 'Son of a bitch' would NOT have been used in Victorian England. I did find myself getting a little annoyed when these words were used 😏

Good victorian thriller

Well worth a listen. Very good narrator. I didn't know about previous 2 books in series, so I would start with Ripper's Shadow first.

almost immediately annoying

Written almost entirely in afterthought-explanation, with little reference to anything victorian-era besides fallacies, and read by someone who wasn't informed that this book is meant to be for adults and she doesn't need to have that annoying storybook lilt in her emphasis.
