I enjoyed this suspenseful tale of Victorian London. The author mimics the style of Dickens and other authors of this era. The descriptions of Victorian England are quite compelling. The protagonist is Charles Maddox, once a well respected police officer, who saw his career quickly come to an end when he dared to voice his disagreement with the conclusions of a superior in the force. He is now on his own trying to make a living freelancing in the apprehension of criminals. When Charles is hired by one of London's wealthiest lawyers to track down the writer of some threatening letters, his fortunes seem to have taken a turn for the better. Of course we know that's not going to happen, don't we. It is just the beginning of a wild ride through the dark, foggy, and dangerous streets of London. Book provided for review by Amazon Vine.
