Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Grecian has a remarkable way of pulling the reader in and down, into the swirling darkWe do not merely read Grecian’s books; we participate in them. In the end, we emerge from this tale dazed and awed, as though we, too, have been toiling in the black womb of London’s underground. We have glimpsed as through a mirror darkly the bloom of evil, the birth of destruction. We have met the Devil.” Huffington Post
“Anyone searching for a novel chocked full of blood-letting and guilty pleasures should look no further…This is a skillfully constructed, very satisfying trek into a shadowy netherworld, where light is as sparsely parceled out aboveground as it is below.” Stratton magazine
“A historical thriller that moves quickly and surely, bringing Jack the Ripper back from the realm of nightmare to the streets of London…Grecian’s novel is the third in his Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad series. Justice and punishment are the deeper themes, and the characterization is superb. Saucy Jack may be one of the most disturbing characters ever written on the page—again.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Grecian has penned the Murder Squad’s best outing yet! Devotees are sure to be delighted, but Grecian’s latest would also make a satisfying introduction to the series.” Library Journal
“This third in Grecian’s Murder Squad series again delivers a hard-hitting historical thriller bursting with deft characterizations (especially of series hero Detective Inspector Walter Day) and the author’s knowledge of Victoriana.” Booklist
