Summary
"St. Giles, London, 1829: three people have been brutally murdered and the city simmers with religious anger and political unrest. Pyke, a sometime Bow Street Runner, sometime crook, becomes embroiled in the investigation but quickly realises he has stumbled into something more sinister and far-reaching; something that threatens the newly created police force and perhaps even the government itself." "In his pursuit of the murderer, Pyke ruffles the feathers of some powerful people and soon finds himself falsely accused of murder - facing a death sentence and the gallows of Old Bailey. Imprisoned, and with only his uncle and the headstrong, aristocratic daughter of his greatest enemy who believe in him, Pyke must engineer his escape, track down the real killer and untangle the web of politics that has been spun around him." "From the gutters of Seven Dials to the cells of Newgate prison; from the sectarian turmoil of Belfast to the highest levels of murky, pre-Victorian politics, The Last Days of Newgate is a darkly atmospheric story with a fantastic, pragmatic - and reluctantly heroic - hero."--BOOK JACKET
