9780007212699: Resurrectionist

Bow Street Runner Matthew Hawkwood brings his own form of justice to the salons and slums of Regency London in the gripping sequel to ‘Ratcatcher’.

For the body snatchers, death is a lucrative business. But it's the corpse they 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 ever more gruesome discoveries await him.

Nowhere, though, 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.

Review:

Praise for ‘Resurrectionist’:

‘Breakneck pace, brutal action, clever characterisation and twisty plotting … James McGee brings Regency London to life – or perhaps I should say to death!’ Reginald Hill

Praise for ‘Ratcatcher’:

‘Irresistible… rambunctious entertainment.’
Observer

‘Rumbustious…a darkly attractive hero, terrific period atmosphere and action.’ The Times

‘Atmospheric and well researched… try it.’ Daily Mirror

‘“Ratcatcher” has everything: duels and derring-do, London highlife and lowlife, French lechery and treachery – all contained in a fast-moving, cleverly constructed plot with an immaculately detailed historical background. Add a hero who is ruthless, mysterious and sexy, and it's a safe bet that “Ratcatcher” marks the start of a series that will run and run … and run!’ Reginald Hill

‘“Ratcatcher” is a richly enjoyable and impressively researched novel – also very gripping. James McGee is clearly a rising star in the historical galaxy and I look forward to Hawkwood’s return.’ Andrew Taylor, author of ‘The American Boy’

From the Back Cover:

HAWKWOOD IS BACK

For the body snatchers, death is a lucrative business. But it's the corpse
they 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 school 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 mukiest corners, where ever more
gruesome discoveries await him.

Nowhere, though, 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.
