An Act of MercyBook
A thrilling tale of murder and intrigue in Victorian London, featuring Detective Harry Pilgrim. Perfect for fans of Ripper Street and The Mangle Street Murders. London 1850. A city of contrasts. Of scientific marvels, poverty, disease and death. When Detective Sergeant Harry Pilgrim (one of Londonâ€™s first police detectives) discovers the corpse of a woman in a Hackney cab, the case seems straightforward â€" until the only suspect is found murdered in his cell. Pilgrim is hindered in his investigation by his own dark past â€" a dead son and a missing wife â€" and also by the well-meaning interference of Charles Dickens, who is serialising Pilgrim's adventures in his journal 'Household Words'. The case turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse. But who is the cat and who the mouse?
