9780007212712: Resurrectionist

Hawkwood, the Regency James Bond, returns in this gripping, action packed sequel to the bestselling `Ratcatcher'.Matthew Hawkwood. Soldier, spy, lover - a man as dangerous as the criminals he hunts.The tough Bow Street Runner is back where he's not wanted, in the most forbidding places London has to offer: its graveyards and the rank, sinister halls of Bedlam, the country's most notorious lunatic asylum.There are missing bodies all around - dead and alive. 'Resurrection men' serve the demands of the city's surgeons by stealing corpses - and creating a few of their own along the way.Far more worrying is the escape from Bedlam of a very unusual inmate: one Colonel Titus Xavier Hyde, an obsessive, gifted surgeon whose insanity is only matched by his dark intelligence. And this twisted genius has a point to prove. Which will mean plenty more work for the gravediggers...

About the Author:

James McGee is the pseudonym of Glen Moy, the Ottakar's manager in Tenterden. Glen has worked in banking, sales, newspapers and the airline industry before bookselling. His interest in the Napoleonic period dates to his first reading of C.S.Forrester's 'The Gun'. 'Resurrectionist' is the second in a series of books featuring Matthew Hawkwood.

Review:

Reginald Hill`Fascinating... with quickly paced action and many a twist and turn, McGee draws the plot's threads skilfully together... thoughtful, colourful and very readable' Historical Novels ReviewPraise 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" marks the start of a series that will run and run... and run!' Reginald Hill`A richly enjoyable and impressively researched novel' Andrew Taylor, author of `The American Boy'
