Blade of the Assassin

(The first book in the Henry Jarrett series)
A novel by

In 1863, the Detective Department at Glasgow Central is undermanned and short of funds, yet Superintendent Jarrett, Inspector Grant, and Sergeant Quinn are expected to find a multiple murderer, a vengeful madman, and a professional pornographer without inconveniencing or implicating certain prominent citizens. Comfortably ensconced in Elsie Maitland's superior guest house for single gentlemen, Superintendent Jarrett - formerly of the Hong Kong Police - depends solely on deduction, while Inspector Grant brings to bear his long experience of the city's back streets. For his part, the youthful Sergeant Quinn is at home with the recently introduced technologies of crime scene photography and the electric telegraph. Together, they uncover a conspiracy so large that it could shake the political administrations on both sides of the Atlantic.
