The English Monster

English Monster Paperback smallMy first book, The English Monster, was published in 2012. It is set in Wapping in the early nineteenth century. River Police Office magistrate John Harriott is shocked by the awful and savage murders of two families in his neighbourhood, and calls on his unique constable Charles Horton to investigate. What they will discover has the potential to shock the burgeoning British Empire to its core, as the terrible crimes of 1811 reveal roots going back to the dawn of England’s bloody trade in human souls.

Set against the backdrop of the actual Ratcliffe Highway murders, The English Monster is a dark tale of murder, investigation, slavery and Empire, covering oceans and continents and centuries.
