Description

Creator of the acclaimed graphic novel series Proof, Alex Grecian has also drawn wide praise for The Yard, his engrossing debut novel set in Victorian England. Walter Day's first case for the London Murder Squad sets him on a hunt for the depraved madman who killed one of their own detectives. Now, Walter's best chance for success lies with Dr. Bernard Kingsley, the Yard's brilliant forensic pathologist. ''Lusciously rich with detail, atmosphere, and history The Yard will keep you riveted from page one.''- Jeffery Deaver, best-selling author

Professional reviews

"There are many books using Jack the Ripper as the main character, but few come close to Grecian's splendid accomplishment in THE YARD. He presents a palpable sense of Victorian London, the largest city in the world--its fog, hansom cabs, teeming populace, and vast differences of class. Narrator Toby Leonard Moore excels at portraying the important personages and those of seemingly little significance, along with the horror of the workhouses, random kindnesses shown to the hopeless, and bits of humor when it's most needed. Listeners will want to revisit London and meet these intriguing characters again. Since Grecian has laid such a splendid foundation, let's hope there will be more to come. S.G.B.
