Blackstone and the New World

By Sally Spencer

An English policeman in New York ends up with more work than he expected in this entertaining thriller.

It’s July 1900, and Sam Blackstone has arrived in New York to pick up a prisoner. But he soon finds himself drafted in to investigate the murder of Inspector O’Brien – a man famed for rooting out police corruption.

Working with Alex Meade, an enthusiastic young detective who worshipped O’Brien, Blackstone scours the city in search of the killer. But the more he searches, the more convinced he becomes that the police department doesn’t want the murder to be solved…

A light, gripping read, Blackstone and the New World will please readers who enjoy police procedurals and historical fiction.
