Can’t Wait Wednesday : The Graves of Whitechapel by Claire Evans

Can't Wait Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is : The Graves of Whitechapel by Claire Evans.  Why – because, murder mystery, Victorian London and Whitechapel have piqued my curiosity – a lot.

TheGravesofVictorian London, 1882. Five years ago, crusading lawyer Cage Lackmann successfully defended Moses Pickering against a charge of murder. Now, a body is found bearing all the disturbing hallmarks of that victim – and Pickering is missing. Did Cage free a brutal murderer?

Cage’s reputation is in tatters, and worse, he is implicated in this new murder by the bitter detective who led the first failed case. Left with no other alternative, Cage must find Pickering to prove his innocence.

His increasingly desperate search takes him back to the past, to a woman he never thought to see again, and down into a warren of lies and betrayals concealed beneath Holland Park mansions and the mean streets of Whitechapel – where a murderer, heartbreak and revenge lie in wait.

Expected publication June 2020

    This is pushing all the right buttons in my mind! I’m happy it will be published early this summer, although it sounds like a perfect read for a foggy fall day… 😀

      Yeah, the dark wintery nights would be the perfect time – but I’m not complaining, I’ll take the early release.
