Overview

The Harvest Man (Scotland Yard's Murder Squad Series #4) by Alex Grecian

Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad—and Jack the Ripper—return, in the extraordinary new historical thriller from the author of the acclaimed national bestseller The Yard.
 
In The Devil’s Workshop, London discovered that Jack the Ripper was back, sending the city—and Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad—into chaos. But now it is even worse. Not only is the Ripper still at large, but so is another killer just as bad.

For Inspector Walter Day, it has been a difficult time. His wife has given birth to twins, his hostile in-laws have come to stay, and a leg injury has kept him at his desk. But when the Harvest Man begins killing, carving people’s faces off their skulls, the Yard knows they need Day in the field.

Not so Sergeant Nevil Hammersmith. Rash actions have cost him his job, but that doesn’t stop his obsessive hunt for the Ripper. When the mutilated bodies of prostitutes start turning up again, Hammersmith enlists the help of a criminal network to stop Saucy Jack, his methods carrying him further and further from the ideals of the Yard, so far in fact that he may never be able to find his way back.

Of course, the Ripper’s been playing a game with him—with Walter Day, as well. He is pushing both of them to their limits, and what happens when they get there . . . no one can say.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Praise for The Devil’s Workshop
 
“Superb. Saucy Jack may be one of the most disturbing characters ever written on the page—again.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred)
 
“Grecian has a remarkable way of pulling the reader in and down, into the swirling dark. We do not merely read Grecian’s books; we participate in them. We have met the Devil . . . and he isn’t done with us yet.”—The Huffington Post

Just love this auther and how he brings you back to 1890 England. The plot builts and doesn' t slow down as it builds to the interesting ending. It is best to read these books in the sequence they were written. Looking forward to the next in this series. I am hooked!

If you have to read scary books during the daytime, you'd best start this one at 5:00 a.m. Full of twists and turns with a historical flair. Mr. Grecian's books keep getting better and better.

Excellent! The story of the murder squad continues, with Inspector Day and Nevil Hammersmith on the trail of Jack the Ripper, and a new evil in the form of the Harvest Man. Day and Nevil both struggling with their debilitating injuries, physical and phycological, strive to protect the Day family and capture the two villains. Mr. Grecian does not hesiteate to inflict pain, to the point of death, on any of his characters. They all fall victim, and suffer. This was a great read, and an excellent addition to the series.
