Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad returns, in the stunning new
historical thriller from the author of the acclaimed national bestseller The Yard.
The British Midlands. It’s called the “Black Country” for
a reason…bad things happen there.
When members of a prominent family disappear from a
coal-mining village—and a human eyeball is discovered in a bird’s nest—the
local constable sends for help from Scotland Yard’s new Murder Squad. Fresh off
the grisly 1889 murders, Inspector Walter Day and Sergeant Nevil Hammersmith
respond, but they have no idea what they’re about to get into. The villagers
have intense, intertwined histories. Everybody bears a secret. Superstitions

more they realize they may never be allowed to leave… Download and start listening now!
