The Ripper is gone, but he's left behind a London full of worry and fear.

Now there are other murders, and it looks as though someone is acting in Saucy Jack's stead. How many more will have to die before Scotland Yard can apprehend the criminal? Alex Grecian's debut novel "The Yard" is a stunning flashback to murder, mayhem, and scandalous doings via Victorian England. It's only been a year since the Ripper slew his way through London, and the police force is still struggling to get back on their feet. With no one to pay for the vicious crimes that plagued the area, people on the street are still afraid and have no trust for the "bobbies" on the force. When the body of a detective from Scotland Yard is discovered in a train station, it looks as if some disgruntled local may actually be targeting the officers. Will the officers be picked off one by one?
