From the bestselling author of BEHIND HER EYES.

'Few writers blend mystery and the supernatural as well as Sarah Pinborough, but there are none who do it better. Quite, quite brilliant' John Connolly

Dr Thomas Bond is back, but this time the trial of murders leads straight to his front door.

Dr Thomas Bond, Police Surgeon, is still recovering from the events of the previous year when Jack the Ripper 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.

A book you will devour.

You know those books you have to keep reading in a frenzied, all-consuming attempt to discover what happens next?

Macabre and dark

 on 21 September 2014
By disrep
The second instalment of Dr bond’s story. Things don’t go well for the good Doctor despite his best efforts. Again I enjoyed the newspaper cuttings throughout and the best bit for me was when you find out the real murder of the title. I didn’t like this quite as much as the first in the series but it is a good read and again left me thinking on the real cases within the story and also the real Dr Bond. I am amazed at how graphic the newspapers were back then, they tell of the state of the victims in very great detail. They were very macabre and didn’t protect anyone’s sensitivities. This of course all makes for great reading if you like your horror/thrillers and to be honest you aren’t going to read this if you don’t. Sarah Pinborough has a great writing style that has good pace and her books never disappoint.

An enjoyable read

I really enjoyed this book it wasn’t as good as the first one, it took a long time to get into the main story and didn’t end how I thought it would but with that said it was still a good read.

What a story it twists and turns and although it was quite a violent story I found it easy to read.

This book brilliantly brings to life the seedy side of London in the late 1890’s, the time of Jack The Ripper & the horror those murders brought to the capital. A perfect follow up to Mayhem, an absolute must read.

Excellent follow up to ‘Mayhem’!

really good read. very atmospheric – great descriptions of London at that time. Really liked all the strong characters too.

Nothing like a happy ending

 on 18 July 2015
By Richard Wright
There’s nothing like a happy ending. Really. In Pinborough’s world, happy endings are not a thing. The end of her novel Mayhem, to which this effectively forms a second part, wasn’t even that happy anyway. A demon and murderer were stopped, but the unlikely team of unheroes responsible were each damaged in devastating ways while achieving it. An optimistic reader might have decided to believe that the characters would grow past the horrors they had experienced, but Pinborough is on hand to demonstrate that no, life is brutal and painful and pointless and cruel. Picking up a few years after the tragedies of Mayhem, just as Dr Thomas Bond is indeed beginning to believe that what he experienced during the Ripper years might have been a misremembered nightmare, the author thrusts him straight back into the hell he escaped. This time there’s little room for doubt by the end of the book. Happy endings are for other people. As bleak a way to close a story (and it really does appear to be closed) as I’ve read in years, full of historical weight and detail, and characters that continue to surprise.
