Hawkwood is back, in the second adventure in the rollicking historical series featuring the enigmatic Bow Street Runner. Death can be a lucrative business. But it's the corpses the body-snatchers leave behind, horribly mutilated and nailed to a tree, which sets Bow Street Runner Matthew Hawkwood on their trail. A new term at London's anatomy schools stokes demand for fresh corpses, and the city's "resurrection men" vie for control of the market. Their rivalry takes an ugly turn when a grave robber is brutally murdered and his body displayed as a warning to other gangs. To hunt down those responsible, Hawkwood must venture into London's murkiest corners, where even more gruesome discoveries await him. Nowhere, however, is as grim as Bedlam, notorious asylum for the insane and scene of another bizarre killing. Sent to investigate, Hawkwood finds himself pitted against his most formidable adversary yet, an obsessive genius hell-bent on advancing the cause of science at all costs.

Entertaining, though it lacks that true Regency flavor & is a little too long.

Ratcatcher is really a good read although some of the submarine technical descriptions were a little too long. Good historical mystery as well as adventure. Look forward to reading second in series.

Love this series!!! I just purchased two of the series and can't wait to complete my set.
This is a great depiction of olde London and all the seedy happenings. Great characters and plot that really draws you in.

I did find that the author jumps around a bit, which was hard to get used to at first but once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. This is my favorite of the Matthew Hawkwood series!! I hope that someone makes this into a movie someday - can't wait!!! :)
