Description

Sebastian’s wife, Hero, is a social reformer who’s writing a series of articles about the poor of London, and while she interviews some of the street children who knew Benji, Sebastian uses the testimony of an old soldier who saw and interrupted someone digging Benji’s grave as a starting point for finding out what happened not just to Benji, but to a number of other homeless children who’ve disappeared.

Allowing Sebastian to believe himself to have indulged in an incestuous relationship – he had not, as was revealed shortly afterwards – is difficult to forgive, but even moreso is the fact that his father had concealed the truth surrounding his (Sebastian’s) birth for almost thirty years.

When I first picked up this book I was expecting a scary ghost tale to have me hiding behind my cushion, however in reality this story was more focused on Mia’s grief and the impact it has had on every aspect of her life. The plot itself is very disjointed and this meant the book didn't engage me as much as the others have done.

After eleven previous books we know the main characters really well although I don't think I would ever actually want to know Jarvis. Excellent storyline, I didn't guess the villain, I was hoping it was one of the characters who was written so well and quite detestable, I'll let you guess to whom I'm referring!

Aber der Autor hat sie auch gut in dem Chaos, was nach dem Fund der Leiche herrscht und den dunklen Geheimnissen, die das Team neben dem eigentlichen Fall ans Licht bringen, gut versteckt. I also adore the main characters - Sebastian, Lord Devlin who does care when the poor are treated badly and his wonderful wife Hero, an activist for social causes. I soak it up because I’m a complete sucker for a protagonist with a protective instinct and a strong moral compass - whether that be a hero or a heroine.Harris does a terrific job of painting a realistic picture of what life must have been like for the large underclass of the city’s denizens who lived in utter squalor, their lives a daily struggle with no hope of anything better and nothing to look forward to but an early, probably undignified, death. The subject matter and murders in this are probably the darkest and most brutal, disturbing, and heartbreaking in the series. Dabei muss ich zugeben, dass ich fast so etwas wie Schadenfreude empfunden habe, als die Hochzeit so gestört wurde. Sebastian and Lovejoy work in tandem along with Paul Gibson to find a sick, diabolical killer, but also hope to prevent more deaths, and to save a little girl who has disappeared, despite the fear she may have already become a victim.

As a crime fiction fan, I’m used to reading NSFW language, including obscenities, and sometimes vulgar sexual references. Sebastian and his father have not seen eye to eye since Hendon acted, years earlier, to prevent his son marrying the young actress with whom he had fallen in love, and whom, more recently, Hendon had revealed was his natural daughter. The accent/dialect added a lot of color but was difficult enough that I acquired the Kindle version of the book and stopped listening to the Audible version.

Beyond it stretched a labyrinth of foul courts and wretched alleys that twisted between here and the Strand. This gives him extra incentive to investigate murders of the innocent who were not casualties of war but who were considered an expendable inconvenience to someone. As they start to unpick the young woman’s life, the secrets and lies they expose soon threaten to tear the small, rural community apart. While the subject is gruesome, the amount of graphic violence is minimal, with only brief descriptions of the torture/rape.
