Review: The Yard by Alex Grecian
Title: The YARD
Author: Alex Grecian
When I write my yearly top ten books that I love...The YARD will be among the ten.
This book takes place in Victorian London right after Jack The Ripper conveys his message of terror.
Now there has been murder squad formed by Scotland Yard. Walter Day heads the murder squad and the first order of business is one of their own has been murdered and left in a trunk for dead. One by one murders happen and people disappear. With the help of forensic pathologist Dr. Kingsley, the two men hunt clue-by-clue and take London apart to find who is murdering their own and many more.
I loved this book. While there are some unsettling moments they are well worth the bile in the stomach. It has to be in this historical cozy in order for us to understand the what, when, where and why of the story.
From page one you are drawn into the story and the characters.
A side note (I loved the dancing man), don't miss this moving and extremely riveting mystery. ********** ten stars.
