The Redemption Murders By J C Briggs No 6 in series
I have liked everything written in this series involving Detective Jones and
Charles Dickens. There are the secondary characters a whole raft of them.
All are unique in the roles they play in the stories and though they are
secondary characters, they still play a major part inthe stories. This is
something quite different in this series. The other over riding feature of the
series is the actual physical location of each section as they unravel. They
add not just the heightened atmosphere to the story but add a dimension not
found elsewhere. London particularly sounds extremely grim, not a city one
would want to live in, especially if one was poor.
The story starts with the stabbing of a seacaptain. No robbery no clues. The
killings escalate and Dickens and Jones try their best to outwit a very clever
murderer to keep the number of victims down.
Set in Victorian London, this is vintage detection at its best.
