    (EBOOK/EPUB) The Last Days of Newgate A Pyke Mystery Set in the aftermath of the Napoleonic era it follows a Bow Street Runner by the name of Pike who is a definite roguecriminal with a sense of honour I love historical novels and this one albeit almost entirely fictional has a lot of good history about the end of the Runners and the creation of the new Metropolitan police

Free read ´ The Last Days of Newgate A Pyke Mystery ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free 'A story of high intrigue and low politics brutal murder and cunning conspiracies tangy and rambunctious stuff' Observer 'Gripping and atmospheric' Daily Express'Enjoyably disturbing likely to leave the reader clamouring for ' TLSSt Giles London 1829 three people have been brutally murdered and the city simmers with anger and political unrest Pyke sometime Bow Street Runner sometime crook finds himself accidentally embroiled in the murder investigation but uickly realises that he has stumbled. The main problem I had with this book was not the fact the protagonist was unlikeable although he is Pyke is shown as not just described as hard cruel vicious We re shown that he treats people women appallingly on than one occasion That s fine that s not necessarily a bad thing in a protagonistThe problem is the inconsistencies One moment it s clear that he and the author knows that he s not likeable that he s meant to be an antihero The next his actions are excused or overlooked He always manages to trump people in dialogue insulting and outdebating them and getting away with it In the first few pages it s made clear that he s attractive though not in the suave if effete manner of an English gentleman No Pyke has to be masculine and also made clear in the first few pages has no trouble getting women and that he dumps them they don t dump himHe does something that is nasty and while it s being done it s presented as him being a hard man borderline criminal ruthless After though there s an explanation like him explaining why he had to do it one that she and we are meant to accept It s like the writer wants to show his hardened credentials look at how tough how nasty brutal this guy is but doesn t want to give up anything for it he s still attractive intelligent better read than a lot of nobles cleverer his actions are forgiveable in the context of his life One moment we re told that something he s done was pure pragmatism unapologetic The next there s the explanation the reason why his actions are acceptableThe writing style is distant I think in part to make it feel appropriate to the era Everything feels described rather than shownIn short not a terrible book but not one that does anything for me or that I d particularly recommend

Free read ´ The Last Days of Newgate A Pyke Mystery ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Fans of Antonia Hodgson Ripper Street and Patrick Easter'The novel drips with all the atmospheric details of a pre Victorian murder mystery pea soupers dingy lanterns and laudanum' The Times'Pyke ia an intriguingly unfathomable character' Financial Times'Pyke is violent vengeful and conflicted in the best tradition of detectives His story takes in grisly murder and torture and uses 1800s London in the same way that hard boiled fiction uses Los Angeles as a mirror of a corrupt society' Time Ou. Brutal callous cold hearted narcissistic that about sums up Pyke the protagonist of the story I get the impression we as readers are supposed to find Pyke a mystery unfathomable deep well read in philosophy despite his lowly status his characteristics natural conseuences of his harsh upbringingBut the string of brutality by his own hands creates too much of a chasm for me rough sex with a frightened prostitute violence towards the Madame of a brothel kicking a drunken old priest off his chair in a bar for no apparent reason and killing a lame dog that has taken to following him around out of affection are just minor offences The violence goes on and on Secretly I would have been pleased if he had rotted in Newgate forever As a Bow Street runner he is tasked with investigating some horrific murders The investigations become overshadowed by his own skewed sense of morality his judgement is final for heinous crimes he seeks revenge killing all those who worked together to frame him in the murder of his own mistress but what of the innocents that die to bring his plan to fruition Sometimes moral absolutes can be as harmful as acts of kindness People have committed terrible crimes in the name of some greater good And so Pyke probably justifies his own existence to himself There will however be no Pyke mysteries for me to put it frankly he s a bit of a knob
