July 29, 2016


Two macabre discoveries in a single morning present an intriguing challenge for Detective Inspector Tom Harper. 

Leeds, England. July, 1893. D.I. Tom Harper is witnessing the demonstration of a devastating new naval weapon, the torpedo, at Roundhay Park. The explosion brings up a body in the lake, a rope lashed tightly around its waist. 

At the same time, dredging operations in the River Aire are disrupted when a woman s severed leg floats to the water s surface, still clad in its stocking and boot. Could the two macabre discoveries be connected? 
Harper s investigations will lead him right to the heart of the criminal underworld that underpins the city and into the path of a merciless killer.
