"D.I. Tom Harper is looking forward to a long winter’s nap on this Christmas Eve in Leeds in 1890; unfortunately, he’s not going to get it. The stabbing death of a young man in the poverty-stricken Jewish district is causing quite a stir"
Wow, what a read, which I put it down once with effort as I did not want to finish it! Chris Nickson's mysteries never fail to enthrall and have the perfect mix of fine character development, intriguing criminal activity and policing, whichever era they are set it. This one of course is late 19th century Leeds with the advent of heavy industrialization on a small city.
What is going to happen the next time out between Tom and his friend Billy Reed, now a triumvirate with new Det. Ash? Well I have to be there and everyone needs to grab this book now to get up to speed.
A great glimpse back into a time when power and politics ALMOST always trumped truth and justice.
