London Society takes their problems to Sherlock Holmes. Everyone else goes to Arrowood. 1896: Sherlock Holmes has once again hit the headlines, solving mysteries for the cream of London society. But among the workhouses and pudding shops of the city, private detective William Arrowood is presented with far grittier, more violent, and considerably less well-paid cases. Arrowood is in no doubt who is the better detective, and when Mr and Mrs Barclay engage him to trace their estranged daughter Birdie, he's sure it won't be long before he and his assistant Barnett have tracked her down. But this seemingly simple missing person case soon turns into a murder investigation. Far from the comfort of Baker Street, Arrowood's London is a city of unrelenting cruelty, where evil is waiting to be uncovered . . . PRAISE FOR THE MURDER PIT: `Another brilliant read from Mick Finlay . . . even better than [Arrowood]' B.A. Paris `astounding ... If you crave Victorian age murder mystery, love darkly gothic atmospheres and want your detective rather tattered and torn at the edges Arrowood is your man.' SHOTS `Enthralling' Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Un asesino esta al acecho en las calles, los pobres estan hambrientos, los cabecillas de las bandas criminales estan haciendose con el control, las fuerzas policiales no dan abasto.Los ricos acuden a Sherlock Holmes, pero el aclamado detective privado no pisa casi nunca las densamente pobladas calles del sur de Londres, las calles donde los crimenes son mas sordidos y la gente mas pobre.En una oscura esquina de Southwark, las victimas acuden a un hombre que detesta a Holmes, a los adinerados clientes de este y el teatral enfoque forense con el que investiga los crimenes.

`Crackles with energy and wit' - The Times London Society takes their problems to Sherlock Holmes. Everyone else goes to Arrowood. 1895: London's scared. A killer haunts the city's streets. The poor are hungry; crime bosses are taking control; the police force stretched to breaking point. While the rich turn to Sherlock Holmes, the celebrated private detective rarely visits the densely populated streets of South London, where the crimes are sleazier and the people are poorer. In a dark corner of Southwark, victims turn to a man who despises Holmes, his wealthy clientele and his showy forensic approach to crime: Arrowood - self-taught psychologist, occasional drunkard and private investigator. When a man mysteriously disappears and Arrowood's best lead is viciously stabbed before his eyes, he and his sidekick Barnett face their toughest quest yet: to capture the head of the most notorious gang in London... In the bestselling tradition of Anthony Horowitz and Andrew Taylor, this gloriously dark crime debut will haunt readers long after the final page has been turned.
