  "The Yard " by nbaker (see profile) 06/09/14

The Yard was a gripping book about London in 1889. Only a year following Jack the Ripper a series of murders have occurred involving two of Scotland Yard's own. Alex Grecian has a way of writing that paints such a vivid picture of the streets and alleys of London in its dark past. You can almost faintly hear the horse hooves clopping along the brick roads at night. The story introduced an Inspector Day who is new to the precinct and assigned to the new murders. Anxious to prove himself, he sets out to make his mark. Along with the help of the local medical examiner, the plot twists and turns down dark pathways to uncover many unseedy characters. A bit dark, a bit gruesome, but what was London at that time if not dark and a bit ghastly. An exciting story that won't disappoint. I look forward to further adventures of Scotlant Yard.
