A death on Waterloo bridge, a body in the river near Wapping, a lady robbed on Wych Street – all common enough daily incidents in early Victorian London. But when an outrageous theft is committed at the port, the clues from these seemingly unconnected crimes soon point irresistibly to a mystery deeper and murkier than the Thames itself. The rapacious Inspector Newsome has much to prove, ex-police detective George Williamson faces difficult choices, and the mysterious Noah Dyson is once more drawn unwillingly within the reach of the authorities. Meanwhile, competing against them all, there is the enigmatic figure calling himself Eldritch Batchem . . . Lives and reputations are at stake. As the investigators pursue a macabre trail into the city's darkest passages, each seeks a prize more personal than mere justice. And in the race for a solution, all stand to discover much more than they are prepared for . . . The Thieves' Labyrinth is a dazzling Victorian entertainment – a gripping, richly atmospheric murder mystery.

The Thieves' Labyrinth

Old fashioned read
February 9th, 2014
the way this book is written makes for a slow read. Doyle ish in its flow. London descriptions are excellent. But the characters Bob in and out , what happened to the newspaperman? I bet it was twice as long and has been hacked about by a heavy handed editor. I would read another one to see if it is tighter.
