Inhaltsangabe zu „The Harvest Man: Scotland Yard Murder Squad Book 4“ von Alex Grecian

Murder Squad 4: Alongside Jack the Ripper there is another brutal serial killer roaming the streets of Victorian London. Spring 1890. The spectre of Jack the Ripper still haunts Inspector Walter Day, his injured leg a daily reminder of his violent brush with London's most feared killer. He alone is convinced that the Ripper remains at large. But, worse is to come for Scotland Yard's Murder Squad. A new killer is terrorizing the citizens of London. They call him the Harvest Man; he hides away in the attics of the unsuspecting, emerging at night to terrorize his victims. This macabre new threat requires Inspector Day to confront his demons, but he soon discovers that the Ripper himself continues to toy with Scotland Yard's finest. The game has only just begun . . . Praise for Alex Grecian's Scotland Yard Murder Squad Series: 'Will keep you riveted from page one' Jeffery Deaver 'CSI: Victorian London' Daily Express 'Throw in deranged prostitutes, poisonings and throat slittings galore, amidst lashings of London fog. Gory, lurid and tons of guilty fun' Guardian 'Lusciously rich' Jeffery Deaver 'Shiver-inducingly creepy. A racy read' Daily Express

    Walter Day und Nevil Hammersmith haben sich gerade erst von ihrer Begegnung mit Jack the Ripper erholt, jedoch haelt der nächste Mörder The Harvest Man die beiden auf Trab. Der Harvest Man tötet Paare, deren Häuser einen Dachboden haben, in denen er sich versteckt bis seine Opfer zu Bett gegangen sind. Außerdem ist Jack immer noch frei und spinnt weiter seine Fäden um Walter in die Finger zu bekommen. Das Cover finde ich richtig genial. Es es ist düster und die Hand, die zu sehen ist erinnert an etwas unheimliches. Ich finde Alex Grecian's Schreibstil packen. Es ist leicht zu verstehen, einfach zu folgen und spannend. In den letzten Büchern hatte er schon die Idee, die Anfänge von heutigen Ermittlungstechniken einzubringen und hat das in diesem Buch fortgeführt. Zu Beginn war es etwas komisch, dass Hammersmith und Day nicht mehr das Dreamteam des Scotland Yard sind. Jedoch finden die beiden mit jeder Seite wieder mehr zusammen und die Ermittlungen nehmen dadurch wieder an Fahrt zu. Ich finde es richtig super, dass alle der Hauptcharaktere so eng miteinander sind und auch in diesem Teil wieder viele tolle Szenen gibt, in denen alle zusammen sind. Das Ende war etwas doof, aber nur weil das Buch endet und sich der Leser nun bis Mai 2016 auf das kommende Buch warten muss:( Ansonsten Spannung pur.
