The Incendiary's Trail Summary

The Incendiary's Trail by James McCreet

Murder is rampant in Early Victorian London. Detective Inspector Newsome of the new Detective Force decides to recruit a recently-apprehended master criminal to help bring the culprits to justice. A polymath with a mysterious past, the man is no eager volunteer.

And when the ghastly murder of conjoined twins galvanizes the city, Newsome blackmails his prisoner - Noah Dyson, as he calls himself - into working with the Force's finest: Sergeant George Williamson.

Unknown to the policemen, the criminal genius behind the murder shares a dark past with their new associate. It is not justice that is on Dyson's mind, but retribution. As Williamson and Dyson together close the net, the murder-rate soars and the streets of London begin to burn. Ingeniously plotted and seething with grotesque characters, James McCreet's striking debut will grip readers from its first dark pages.

The Incendiary's Trail Reviews

"James McCreet's splendid debut novel owes much to Charles Dickens's melodramatic style and subject matter. Victorian in both the setting and the telling, full of vividly depicted squalor and grotesquery . . . The novel's spectacular set-pieces include a public hanging, a masked ball and a hot-air balloon chase. Well worth reading." "Guardian""
