    Recap A young girl is found dead on the new Metropolitan line while the prime suspect Henry Cotton, runs off into the night Her murderer is connected to Cotton via a series of coincidences Review I enjoy a murder mystery when I have no idea whodunnit and I had no idea It was an unexpected surprise The book is rich in detail, obviously well researched and the characters feel genuine It s London with smog

    As the first example of historical crime fiction I ve read, I wasn t sure whether I d like or be interested in the genre After what was a quick and relatively easy read, I m pleased to say I enjoyed this novel After what seemed to be a fairly slow start, I ended up feeling intrigued to find out what had happened and, what was happening, about half way through I felt sympathy and empathy for the character of Clar

    Mr Jackson author of The Dictionary of Victorian London writes this wonderful series This is the first one, I have read it three times just for the details he adds to the story about life in London This series can be hard to get since most are import only, but they are worth the effort.

    A good racy thriller, set in 1864, in the early days of the Metropolitan Line, the world s first underground railway line A quick read I read it in sittings with lots of historical colour, small time criminals and philanthropic wealthy types Not dashing out to buy the other books in this series, but it was entertaining.

    This was so much better than I was expecting, and so much darker I wished there had been a littleon the personalities of the characters, just a fewlittle details, and that would have pushed it up to a 5 read for me.

    First in the Inspector Webb period series, like what appears to be the time setting for Jackson s books it is set in Victorian era London.Average crime fare, with some good parts, but overall pretty forgettable.

    A good historical crime mystery It might not be a demanding read,but it is a book that would pass the time on a long train journey.

    Yes, I d read another in this series Well plotted, with authentic characters especially the annoying but sincere clueless Henry Cotton Phipps.

    Leuk voor de tijdsbeschrijving en de couleur locale Ook voor de inspecteur op een hoge bi Maar de plot is minder interessant.
