This is the fourth book in the Scotland Yard Murder Series. It is my entry to the series and I am certainly going to go back and read all of the others. This was an engaging and interesting Jack-the-Ripper story set in Victorian England. Inspector Walter Day is on the hunt to catch the harvest man – a deranged serial killer trying to ‘find’ his parents, while also on the hunt for a recently escaped Jack-the-Ripper. It is a fast-paced and exciting read. The story has a bit of gruesome detail, so I would steer away from the book if you don’t enjoy a bit of gory detail.
