MacBride does not go soft on your sensitivities but spins a great story. I do wonder about the force's work health and safety practices given Sergeant "Lazarus" goes through enough beatings to be in A & E most nights.

Good except ending

Engaging book with good narration but let down by an ending which seemed as though author had run out of puff

First of Siobhan's books I have read. The way the author moves between then and now made me wish I had a perfect memory and could remember earlier conversations. A delight to listen to and had me enthralled.

Slow start then gripping

Old style detection story. The book was well paced and a narrator perfectly attuned to the plot.

Miranda Carter weaves an evocative story with colourful if disturbing images of Dickensian London. Jeremiah Blake and William Avery come together to discover the perpetuator of bizarre killings.

I enjoyed murder bag but slaughter man was a let down. Implausible decisions to place officers at risk and Max Wolfe ended up with enough injuries to place him in rehab for a few decades. And yet he just kept on going.

It is not often that I find myself not having the slightest idea where a detective story is heading. Rachel Abbott had me guessing and I was not guessing correctly for at least the first half of the book. Indeed a great read.
