Rate this:
The 6th historical thriller featuring Matthew Hawkwood, Bow Street Runner and Spy, now hunting a killer on the loose in Regency London. Home from the war in America, Matthew Hawkwood's return to Bow Street is marked by a summons to a burying ground and the corpse of a young woman, murdered and cast into an open grave. At first the death is deemed to be of little consequence but when Chief Magistrate James Read receives a direct order from the Home Office to abandon the case, Hawkwood's interest is piqued. When Hawkwood's hunt for the killer leads him from London's squalid backstreets into the heart of a government determined to protect its secrets at all costs, his one recourse is to turn to his contacts within the criminal underworld for help. As the truth behind the girl's murder emerges, setting in motion a deadly chain of events, Hawkwood learns the true meaning of loyalty and that this time the enemy is much closer to home than he ever imagined...
