Blurb; Smuggling. Prostitution. Murder.
London. 1920 and coroner’s officer May Keaps is tasked with solving the mystery that surrounds the death of a young boy, found drowned in The Thames.
But was it murder or an accident?
May knows that when children go missing, the reason is often linked to money but she is in danger of underestimating the corrupting influence of power . . .
On streets where poverty and exploitation walk hand-in-hand everyone has a price. And some are more valuable dead than alive. But who is pulling the strings?
May must journey into the dark underbelly of London to find the answers.
My Review; Wow. Very impressed with the second book in this series, I would personally say this story is miles better than the first and had me hooked throughout. A series that just gets better and better! A brilliant historical crime investigation full of suspense, set in the 1920’s. It is one of those books that makes you go THAT’S WHY ITS CALLED THAT!
Found drowned highlights how determined and strong May Keaps character really is within her job which she takes very seriously, sometimes too seriously. I would highly recommend this series to you all so far but you must read them in order as this story does make references to book number one (Foul Trade) which could ruin the first story for you.
I enjoyed reading this one. A well written story and well earned four stars. I look forward to reading more in this series and by this author.
