'Who would send a madman to solve a murder?'

The Bowman Of The Yard series is a sequence of Victorian crime fiction from Richard James following Inspector George Bowman of Scotland Yard throughout 1892.


The Head In The Ice sees Bowman released from a Lunatic Asylum to investigate the discovery of a frozen head in the River Thames, whilst The Devil In The Dock pits him against the mysterious Kaiser. The Body In The Trees sees Bowman investigating a series of mysterious suicides in the village of Larton.

'A genuinely impressive debut. Richard James has crafted an engrossing mystery with a great sense of atmosphere, and meticulously researched.'

Andrew Cartmel, The Vinyl Detective
