Sheffield, England, 1912.

When a mute criminal known as 'the Street Arab' is taken into custody, police call on court missionary, Robert Elliott, to try and unravel the enigma. With the help of Mary O' Driscoll, a sharply perceptive nurse, Elliott reveals the prisoner to be Walter Stanford, a man with a blemished past and who is about to change their lives forever.

As Elliott tries to understand the significance of a mysterious note found in a locket on the cell floor, Mary becomes haunted by a series of lucid dreams about Walter's life and a dark harrowing crime. But why have they all been brought together? Is it simply fate? Or could it be strange intervention to bring closure to a chilling past?

One thing is certain...the answers have consequences!

This mystery was well written. Characters were well developed and the story captivating. I read it through in one sitting as I couldn't put it down. This is supposed to be a series of books but Barnes and Noble doesn't seem to have the other books yet. Enjoy this one until the others become available.

Very well done. A page turner.

This isn't really a mystery, in the conventional sense. It's more a tale of personal disfunction, with some paranormal bits tossed in. I didn't find any of the characters particularly sympathetic, except perhaps for the probation officer and his wife. The rest of the characters were developed heavily on the melodramatic, neurotic side, with a few rather sickening episodes involving them. Average. Glad I didn't pay for it.

Epic tale of intrigue, mystery, love (and lust), violence, war, espionage and revenge. What a great read. It sets off at 100mph when we are introduced to the mystery character (the Street Arab) being chased by the Police. When it slows down we are presented with an intriguing love puzzle (be careful with this). Chris Brookes cleverly keeps you in 1912 and then through the Great War with subtle yet gritty details of early 20th century daily life in his narrative. He keeps you reading by cunningly intertwining three plots that come together towards the end - this is the entanglement. The pace of the story accelerates for the final third of the book that keeps you turning page after page. There are clues to carry you along but I wasn't prepared for the twist. A gripping and satisfying read. Enjoy. Daz Nugent - UK reader
