Publisher's Summary

London, 1812: Treacherous gangs roam the capital, and not even the Palace of Westminster is safe. When Detective Stephen Lavender is called in to investigate a highway robbery and a cold-blooded murder, both the cases take a dangerous and disturbing personal twist.

And when Lavender's trusted deputy, Constable Ned Woods, finds a mysterious severed foot washed up on Greenwich Beach, they soon realise that these ancient bones are more sinister than they first appeared.

With Bow Street Police Office undermanned and in disarray, it will take all of Lavender and Woods's wit and skill - and some help from Lavender's spirited wife, Magdalena - to unmask the fiend behind the mayhem, restore peace and justice to the beleaguered city and solve the tragic mystery of the severed foot.

But will they do so in time to foil a plot that threatens to plunge the country into chaos?

    Karen takes real events and weaves them into her own story and this one doesn’t disappoint! It gathered pace to the point where I could not put it down ! Like the other Lavender mysteries before first class and looking forward to more of the same

    Story
    "Based on history "

    I’ve enjoyed this series which is based on a Bow Street detective of the era of the same name. This book weaves a real life tragedy and mystery from 1812 with a some fictional solution in a fast paced and entertaining story based in history. Well worth the read or listen. The narrator does a great job with the varied characters and accents.

    "Love all of Karen Charlton Detective Lavender Series"

    I loved this book! It’s a bit slow in the beginning but once you realize the story has two crimes going on, you begin to understand. Michael Page is the best British narrator EVER!!

    Plus I love that Karen gives you real life events that inspired these books in the last chapter...I hope there is a number 5 because of the great ending with Stephen & his beautiful Spanish diva!! ❤️❤️👍 Highly recommended!!
