Fiction

Scotland Yard Inspector Phillip Devlin's past comes back to haunt him, when a series of gruesome murders unsettles Victorian London, and most especially the Yard. Why does the killer single out Devlin for his game of cat and mouse? Is his killing spree something...

...personal?

MoonLit Books

Interwoven into the suspense is a generous dose of humour, provided by the warm-hearted Devlin himself, as well as his motley group of assistants, amongst them a charmingly inept, infatuated constable, a pair of elegant graverobbers and a couple of free-thinking sapphites, all of whom have a colourful history and personality of their own.



Most chilling of all, perhaps, is the figure of John Whittaker, a man more deadly than Jack the Ripper and more cunning than a snake...a man who will sacrifice anything and anyone to kill the one man who has been his target all along: Devlin himself.

3 stars
"A Cold-blooded Scoundrel"
reviewed by Audra Silva for
Yard Inspector Philip Devlin has to look to the past to solve a recent series of murders. The murderer has singled him out for the game and Devlin must solve the case before the killer strikes again. With the help of his infatuated constable, Freddie Lewis, two cultured grave robbers, and a pair of liberal Sapphites, Devlin finds Scotland himself hunting for clues in strange places.
A Cold-blooded Scoundrel has a great cast of offbeat characters providing a mystery mixed with a good dose of humor. The plot has some surprising twists leaving you to wonder who is really on Devlin's side... the story is interesting and the quirky characters are delightful.
