The Yard by Alex Grecian
Inspector Day recently moved from quiet Devon to bustling London to join the Murder Squad of Scotland Yard. The public isn’t too happy with the Yard since they believe Saucy Jack is still out there and the police should have caught him. Someone is apparently VERY upset. One of the Murder Squad detectives is found mutilated and stuffed into a steamer trunk left on a train platform. Who is targeting police? Could Jack the Ripper be back?
What I liked most about this book was the sense of being there. The author does a great job making the main and secondary characters come to life. You know what being them, during this time, was like. This is great historical fiction as well as a well-crafted mystery; equally good on audio and the printed page.
