In this new mystery, Constable Sam Plank suspects there may be a link between a suicide, an embezzler, an arsonist and a thief. No corner of Regency London is untouched by these crimes, as he travels from the mansions of St James's back to his own childhood haunts among the dank alleyways of Wapping. As his steadfast wife becomes involved in his investigations, and with a keen young police officer now under his command, Sam finds himself leading them all into a confrontation with some ruthless and brutal adversaries - one of whom he had hoped never to see again.

Review quote

"Even though there is a complex financial aspect to the crimes, the concise writing style makes for easy, accessible reading. [The author's] characters are Dickensesque in their colourful characterisation and depiction, and all are extremely well developed." The Historical Novel Society

"Being in the company of Constable Samuel Plank is like walking the mean and moody streets of Regency London with a much loved and trusted friend... From the beginning of 'The Man in the Canary Waistcoat', I was immersed in good story telling. There is no doubt that the author has a clever way with words and shows a real empathy for her characters and truly makes them come alive on the page." Jo Barton of book review blog JaffasReadsToo

"Regency police constable Sam Plank, so well established in the first book, continues to develop here... Like the first book, this is not so much a whodunnit but a whydunnit, and Grossey skilfully unfolds a complex tale of financial crime and corruption." Debbie Young on Amazon
