A novel by

 
 
If you were fascinated by The Five, you'll love this gripping and atmospheric historical thriller set in Victorian London in the wake of Jack the Ripper.

A killer is haunting London's streets . . .

A year after Jack the Ripper claimed his last victim, London is in the grip of a wave of terror. The newly formed Murder Squad of Scotland Yard battles in vain against the tide of horror.

When the body of a detective is found in a suitcase, his lips sewn together and his eyes sewn shut, it becomes clear that no one is safe from attack.

Has the Ripper returned - or is a new killer at large?

And for Walter Day, the young policeman assigned the case, is time running out?

Praise for The Yard:

'If Charles Dickens isn't somewhere clapping his hands for this one, Wilkie Collins surely is.' New York Times

Genre: Historical Mystery

Praise for this book

"Lusciously rich with detail, atmosphere, and history, and yet as fast paced as a locomotive, The Yard will keep you riveted from page one. It’s truly a one—or two—sitting read." - Jeffery Deaver

"A brilliantly crafted debut novel with unforgettable characters. An utterly gripping tale perfectly evokes Victorian London and brings you right back to the depraved and traumatic days of Jack the Ripper." - Lisa Lutz
