A year after Jack the Ripper claimed his last victim, Victorian London is in the grip of a wave of crime and murder, with its citizens no longer able to trust the police to protect them. The newly formed Murder Squad of Scotland Yard, made up of just twelve detectives, battles in vain against the tide of violence and cruelty. When the body of a Yard detective is found in a suitcase, his lips sewn together and his eyes sewn shut, it becomes clear that not even the police are safe from attack. Has the Ripper returned - or is a new killer at large? Walter Day, the squad's newest recruit, is assigned the case and finds a strange ally in the Yard's first forensic pathologist, Dr Bernard Kingsley. Kingsley, a pioneer of groundbreaking forensic science, is convinced that strange new techniques such as finger printing are the key to finding the person responsible. With Kingsley's help, will Day find the murderer before it's too late? Or are the police once again helpless to stop a serial killer whose brutality knows no limits?

Alex Grecian's The Black Country sees the Scotland Yard Murder Squad return in a gruesome historical thriller. When members of a prominent family disappear from a coal-mining village - and a human eyeball is discovered in a bird's nest - the local constable sends for help from Scotland Yard's new Murder Squad. Inspector Walter Day and Sergeant Nevil Hammersmith respond, but they have no idea what they're about to get into. The villagers have intense, intertwined histories. Everybody bears a secret. Superstitions abound. And the village itself is slowly sinking into the mines beneath it. Not even the arrival of forensics pioneer Dr. Bernard Kingsley seems to help. In fact, the more the three of them investigate, the more they realize they may never be allowed to leave. . . . From The Yard author Alex Grecian comes The Black Country- a horrifying journey into the darkest backwoods of Victorian Britain. The Black Country is guaranteed to appeal to fans of recent Ripper TV dramas (BBC's Ripper Street, ITV's Whitechapel) as well as Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes films.

Alex is the author of the long-running and critically acclaimed comic book series Proof, and he lives in Topeka, Kansas, with his wife and son. The Yard is his first novel.

A former member of London’s MP Flying Squad pays tribute to his fellow officers in a gripping and emotional true crime chronicle of duty and sacrifice. Dick Kirby of London’s Serious Crime Squad shares ten stories of courage spanning fifty years of crime enforcement in the Metropolitan Police. In honoring the selfless men and women who gave their lives, Kirby sheds light on the ever-present dangers of street patrol—from confrontations at public protests to being caught in the middle of a gang war to answering a seemingly run-of-the-mill call at a quiet residence. Here are the true stories of extraordinary lives cut short: WPC Yvonne Fletcher gunned-down while policing a demonstration at the Libyan Embassy; Detective Sergeant Ray Purdy, taken out while arresting a common blackmailer; PC Ray Summers, an officer with less than two years’ service, stabbed to death as he broke up a gang fight; a three-man crew in an unmarked ‘Q’ car wiped out by gunmen; PC Nat Edgar, shot by a burglar; PC Patrick Dunne, a home-beat officer murdered while investigating a domestic dispute; the horrific bombing of Herrods department store which cost three brave police officers their lives; and the murder of PC Stephen Tibble, which sparked investigations into the IRA. Drawing deeply on his knowledge and contacts within and outside the Metropolitan Police, Kirby explores the lives and deaths of these officers, and the trauma endured by the colleagues and loved ones they left behind. “I am delighted that Dick Kirby has written this book. Such heroes should be remembered.” —Michael Winner, director of Death Wish, from the Forward
