Scotland Yard Inspector Walter Day and Sergeant Nevil Hammersmith are still recovering from the energetic sleuthing that solved the 1889 serial killing described in The Yard, but their latest assignment promises no rest at all for the weary. An entire elite family from a coal-mining village has vanished and the prospects for their safe return do not look promising, especially after a human eyeball is found. Meanwhile, the local populace appears to comprise one messy contingent of possible suspects. Fortunately, Day, Hammersmith, and forensics wizard Dr. Bernard Kingsley are ready, willing, and extraordinarily able to hunt down leads one by one. A worthy successor to The Yard.
