Dr Thomas Bond, Police Surgeon, is still recovering from Jack the Ripper's depredations when he haunted the streets of London - and a more malign enemy hid in his shadow. Bond and the others who worked on the gruesome case are still stalked by its legacies, both psychological and tangible. But now the bodies of children are being pulled from the Thames . . . and Bond is about to become inextricably linked with an uncanny, undying enemy.

'Much grittier and scarier than its predecessor, Murder will take you to a very dark place. A wonderfully creepy experience' Upcoming4Me. 'It's a novel which stands alongside the best of this sort of genre blending from Michael Marshall Smith or John Connolly ... A blend of the supernatural, horror, crime and psychological profiling which makes you care about the characters before turning their lives inside out. 9/10' Sci-Fi Bulletin. 'It's extremely rare that I read an entire book in one sitting but I just couldn't put Murder down ... Sarah Pinborough has once again proven why she has earned a place on my extremely short list of favourite authors' The Eloquent Page. 'Murder has all the elements I expected from Sarah Pinborough, excellent writing, mystery and a dark undertone that haunts the story throughout' From First Page to Last.

'Murder is a more than satisfying follow up ... and provides the whole story with a deeper and richer conclusion' British Fantasy Society. 'The characterisation is spot on ... You can almost feel the fog seeping into your clothes as you turn the page ... Meticulously researched, well written and totally engrossing' The Horror Hothouse. 'This is historical fiction at its best as well as one of the better mystery novels that is likely to be published this year' Examiner.com.
