The Thieves' Labyrinth by James McCreet
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This is the third in McCreet’s Albert Newsome series about a Victorian detective with the mind of Sherlock Holmes and the methods of a Hollywood action hero. Temporarily demoted, Newsome is pitted against his old rivals George Williamson and Noah Dyson as they all race to discover the truth of a boat’s disappearance in the Thames and a mysterious body pulled from the river. A perfect series for fans of Sky’s Penny Dreadful TV series, but you may wish to start at the beginning of the series with The Incendiary’s Trail.

If you like James McCreet you might also like to read books by James McGee, Daniel Stashower and Iain Pears.

Synopsis

The Thieves' Labyrinth by James McCreet

A death on Waterloo bridge, a body in the river near Wapping, a lady robbed on Wych Street - all common enough daily incidents in early Victorian London. But when an outrageous theft is committed at the port, the clues from these seemingly unconnected crimes soon point irresistibly to a mystery deeper and murkier than the Thames itself. The rapacious Inspector Newsome has much to prove, ex-police detective George Williamson faces difficult choices, and the mysterious Noah Dyson is once more drawn unwillingly within the reach of the authorities. Meanwhile, competing against them all, there is the enigmatic figure calling himself Eldritch Batchem ...Lives and reputations are at stake. As the investigators pursue a macabre trail into the city's darkest passages, each seeks a prize more personal than mere justice. And in the race for a solution, all stand to discover much more than they are prepared for ...The Thieves' Labyrinth is a dazzling Victorian entertainment - a gripping, richly atmospheric murder mystery.
