Description
In this second book of the series, following Dead Image, Detective Sergeant Best becomes embroiled in a horrific real-life tragedy on the Thames. Best has been sent undercover to investigate a suspected baby farm in Islington, and while shadowing a suspect he boards the pleasure steamer Princess Alice on a fateful September evening in 1878. On their return from Gravesend, the collier Bywell Castle rams the steamer, sending more than 650 passengers and crewmen to their deaths. Best survives, and among the bodies recognizes someone who was not on board, touching off a murder investigation that will change him forever. Herself a former policewoman in London's West End in the 1950s and a former student nurse, Joan Lock is known both for her gripping nonfiction, including The Princess Anne Disaster—and for her realistic historical novels, particularly the Victorian era mysteries featuring the charismatic Detective Sergeant Best of Scotland Yard.

"This superb novel ... [is] so much more than a detective novel.... At once an intriguing and well-paced murder mystery and an emotive, poignant social commentary, this book is both satisfying and deeply disturbing."—Historical Novels Review
