From the Number One bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes. Delve into a gaslit London, where Jack the Ripper is making headlines, but another, much more dangerous, madman is on the loose.

When a rotting torso is discovered in the vault of New Scotland Yard, it doesn't take Dr Thomas Bond, Police Surgeon, long to realise that there is a second killer at work in the city where, only a few days before, Jack the Ripper brutally murdered two women in one night.

This is the hand of a colder killer, one who lacks Jack's emotion.

As more headless and limbless torsos find their way into the Thames Dr Bond becomes obsessed with finding the killer. As his investigations lead him into an unholy alliance, he starts to wonder Is it a man who has brought mayhem to the streets of London, or a monster?

'A compulsively readable story that starts as a conventional murder mystery and morphs, by degrees, into a horrifying supernatural thriller' Guardian.

Reviews for Mayhem: Mayhem and Murder Book I

'The supernatural element adds atmosphere in the way Conan Doyle used the spectral beast in The Hound of the Baskervilles. A novel, by the way, in whose company this excellent book belongs' crimefictionlover.com. 'A compulsively readable story that starts as a conventional murder mystery and morphs, by degrees, into a horrifying supernatural thriller' Guardian. 'This is deliciously inventive stuff, delivered with the narrative nous and sense of atmosphere that lifts Mayhem above the raft of many similar novels' Crime Time. 'A very well-crafted chiller ... Pinborough successfully manoeuvres her story away from well-worn territory for a highly entertaining blend of crime procedural and Gothic horror' SciFi Now. 'A taut historical crime/horror that grasps you from the first page and holds you inexorably. If you enjoy John Connolly's blend of the supernatural and crime, then don't miss this!' Sci-Fi Bulletin.
