Summary

Victorian London is gripped by fear as a serial killer slays an apparently random victim on Hampstead Heath every month. Two men begin to suspect a mysterious link between the victims: Major Henry Steele and ex-sergeant Mason have been discreetly retired from Military Intelligence and now work as private investigators, and are helping Scotland Yard hunt the so-called Heath Maniac. Their search takes them to houses on the heath where certain residents hold secrets, a vivisectionist's laboratory, and the bedside of a dying comedian. They must fight for their lives in an ambush on Hampstead Heath, before the maniac is finally exposed in a shattering climax.

Silly melodrama

Cardboard characters with no depth. Gave up after a few chapters. Terry Wale's narration excellent as usual.

Excellent

I love the characters of the inquiry agents! The characters in this story had depth and the story moved along very well. The end was clever.
