Victorian London is a cesspool of crime, and Scotland Yard has only twelve
detectives—known as the “Murder Squad”—to investigate thousands of murders
every month. Created after the Metropolitan Police’s spectacular failure to
capture Jack the Ripper, the Murder Squad suffers rampant public contempt. They
have failed their citizens. But no one can anticipate the brutal murder of one
of their own, one of the twelve …
When Walter Day, the squad’s newest hire, is assigned the case of the
murdered detective, he finds a strange ally in the Yard’s first forensic
pathologist, Dr. Bernard Kingsley. Together they track the killer, who is clearly
not finished with the Murder Squad—but why?
fascinating period detail and real historical figures, this spectacular debut
in a new series showcases the depravity of late Victorian London and the advent
of criminology and introduces a stunning new cast of characters sure to appeal
to fans of The Sherlockian and The Alienist.
