Book Changes are afoot and I hope this team can stay together Only reading the next book will determine thisThe Devil s Workshop was a fantastic can stay together Only reading the next book will determine thisThe Devil s Workshop was a fantastic If you My Jihad: The True Story of An American Mujahid's Amazing Journey from Usama Bin Laden's Training Camps to Counterterrorism with the FBI and CIA like character driven mysteries this would be the perfect choice for you And if you haven t read the first two books in the series I urge you to start at the beginning These atmospheric novels are fantastic and worth the time spent readingOriginally reviewed here Iove a dark gritty Victorian crime novel but for me this one fell somewhat short of the previous books in this series It was a bit in your face for The Book of Leviathan lack of a better term andacked the nuance and depth of the previous novels The plot did not feel as well developed and though one should expect a fair amount of gore in a book that includes Jack the Ripper as a central character it felt somewhat gratuitous at times as if the goal was shock rather than suspense It did however eave me wanting to read the next book in the series and find out about the Harvest Man so overall I give it three stars Creepy evil dark and full of mid 19th century London ambiance including several chapters below ground This is definitely my favorite entry of the series so far and I predict the next will be as dark as this one One warning of all the series this is the goriest and not for the faint of heart Well written but violence and sadism runs amok All your favorite characters are here although not nearly enough Hammersmith plus a few evil convicts on the run to keep the Murder Suad inspectors hopping And then there s Jack And the Harvest ManEnough said go read it yourself Great read The villains where brilliant as well as the usual characters and atmospheric setting I enjoyed it because it featured a certain ah saucy someone haha Plus the ending was eft open It s been over 2 yrs since I Las Maravillosas Obras de Dios: Historias B�blicas Para La Familia last visited this series Where does the time goAn easy compelling read is how I remember the first two this is certainly of the same from the start The characters areight fit in with the whole nuance of the story as I recollect from the prior two stories the eviiiil villain is in Italics to help us place him from the get go this one is a good un a fine fit for the plot He s no pantomime villain mind a right piece of workA decent read in the high 3 s for me rounded upto 4 stars The third book in Alex Grecian s Murder Suad series and another brilliant read Once again we follow the story of our beloved characters as they deal with trouble in Victorian London This time however they re not digging to the bottom of a murder instead they are chasing criminals who have escaped from prison Through this we see old and new villains alike as they try to avoid the Murder Suad and being sent back to prisonI will admit that I was a bit put off by the notion of Jack the Ripper roaming the streets once as I especially شرح جامع مثنوى معنوى loved this series as it occurred after Jack the Ripper was done with his crimes However that being said I was not at all disappointed by what I was given It was not entirely what I expected but it was a gripping read on that front offering us an entertaining prospect with Jack returning to the streets of London and causing havoc for the police For anyone else who is tentative about this prospect know that we are not dealing with Jack roaming the streets killing off females as we re given a different insight into theife of the notorious killer a very uniue and interesting take on what happenedJack isn t the only new character we are introduced to in this book The mysterious Inspector March that Day has inspired to be The New Song: For the Sunday School, Societies of Christian Endeavor, and Other Religious Exercises (Classic Reprint) like throughout the first two books makes an appearance here allowing us to view the relationship between Day and the man he views as a mentor and father figure of sorts There is also the reappearance of what some might deem beloved characters from the first book that may have missed during The Black CountryMoreover there seems to be of an insight into the personalives of characters especially the ives of Walter and Claire Day throughout Whilst there isn t as much Hammersmith and Doctor Kingsley action they both do appear to offer up their usual oveable idiosyncrasies and the chain of events surrounding them is especially interesting Hammersmith in particular although this may be a somewhat bias view as he uickly became my favourite character when reading the series has an interesting story towards the end of the book which will Arabian Challenge leave you excited to see where things go in the futureOverall I thoroughly enjoyed this book In fact if the truth is to be known I enjoyed it aot than I enjoyed The Black Country putting it almost on par with The YardAny fans of the Murder Suad need to pick this up now.

American Literature Student Text last half to third of the book had me reading nonstop and staying up well past the midnight hour to finish the tale Still a fan of Grecian and the Murder Suad series I doook forward to It appears that the Murder Suad series has crashed and burnedOne of the things I enjoyed most about the first two novels in this series was the character studies of those involved with or related to Scotland Yard s Murder Suad especially detectives Walter Day and Nevil Hammersmith forensic pathologist Dr Bernard Kingsley and his daughter Fiona Here the spark that it up each of the characters is absent The relentless undercurrent of the story the fact Walter Day is anxious about his impending fatherhood is driven home with all the subtlety of a two by four to the faceAnother thing I enjoyed about the earlier novels was their sense of historical time and space as they dealt with post Ripper Victorian London at the dawn of forensic science and professional detective method Unfortunately The Devil s Workshop contains some jarring anachronisms Worse yet Alex Grecian misses a tremendous opportunity as he spotl The best book in the series so far I m not generally one for mysteries but there s something about those set in a historical period that keeps me coming back for I discovered Alex Grecian a few years ago when I won book 1 of The Murder Suad series in a Goodreads giveaway and I ve been anxiously awaiting each installment since thenThe series is set in London following the Jack the Ripper murders and follows the changes to Scotland Yard after the horrific murders Namely the formation of the Murder Suad Walter Day is one such inspector that forms the new Murder Suad and he s been changing the approach to investigation ever since At this point in the series with The Devil s Workshop readers are fairly familiar with Day and his team including constable Hammersmith and Doctor Kingsley however the team is put sorely to the test in the atest installmentFollowing the escape of four murderers from prison Day and the rest of the Yard are sent to investigate and recapture the criminals before they can do any further damage One of these criminals will be recognized from book one However it soon becomes clear to Day and company that there is behind the apparent escape and in fact appears to be well planned out and has unleashed Jack the Ripper once again This conspiracy threatens the The Battle of Maldon and Other Old English Poems lives of Day his team and those closest to him and it seems that the team may not make it out of this investigation unscathedIn my opinion The Devil s Workshop is the best of the series so far It was by far the most suspenseful of the series as the violence hits closer to home for Day I simply could not put this one down which made for a rather groggy day at work the following morning I did not know how this one was going to end and I was worried that the characters that I d come toove would be harmed irreparably and really some of them are But to answer which ones well that would spoil the book Go forth and readAs for the characters this is really what has kept me reading the series Yes the mystery is great but I ove Walter Day and Nevil Hammersmith They make such a great team and I ove getting glimpses into their personal ives The author has done such an excellent job at combining mystery with fully developed characters And Grecian s a master at multiple points of view this has added so much to these mysteries While character development is slow because of all the action and mystery it s what keeps me coming back I want to know about each of them I can t wait to see what happens next for the Murder Suad considering the ending of this. Inals and mete out their own terrible brand of retribution Now they are taking it a step further They have arranged for four murderers to escape from prison and into the group’s handsBut the plan goes wrong The killers elude them and now it is up to Walter Day Nevil Hammersmith and the rest of Scotland Yard’s Murder Suad to hunt the convicts down before they can resume their bloody spree But the Murder Suad may.
