Leeds, Christmas Eve, 1890.

As fear rises in the Jewish community, DI Tom Harper is forced to use unorthodox methods to find the killer.

Review quote

Nickson's second historical to feature detective inspector Harper is a thoroughly enjoyable procedural. Victorian-era Leeds comes alive as an unusual setting against which the sympathetically drawn characters perform their roles. Recommend for anyone who loves Ripper Street on BBC America or Anne Perry's Victorian crime novels.-- "Library Journal Starred Review"
