    A intriguing murder mystery set in Victorian London. The wife of a wealthy art dealer is founded murdered in Green Park. Is the murder connected with the mysterious activities of the River Wraith who has been terrorising the prostitutes plying their trade in and around the banks of the Thames? Its up to Inspector Ben Ross, ably assisted by his wife Lizzie and their servant Bessie, to investigate. There are some lovely background touches here such as the description of Ben's and Lizzie's home in a terrace close to Waterloo Station, the denseness of the London fog, Waterloo Bridge as a toll bridge, which really bring a sense of the Victorian background to the book. My only real criticism is that, as for the previous books in the series, the narrative is divided between Ben and Lizzie, Lizzie's is the minority voice here which undermines this as part of the Lizzie Martin series. Otherwise this is an interesting read.
