9781933397108: Man's Illegal Life (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries)

London in the 18th century is one of the most dangerous cities in the world, a status helped along by the lack of any organized police force. Peacekeeping falls on the shoulders of parish watchmen like George Man, who stumbles on the emaciated corpse of a notorious miser, tied to a chair and left to starve to death in a boarded-up building. Just 50 years earlier, the Great Plague had devastated London, and its victims were similarly sealed in their homes to die. The Plague has recently been rumored to have re-emerged in France: Was the miser's murder a frantic attempt to stave off another epidemic? Or is a particularly devious criminal mind at work?

From the Publisher:

In this spellbinding, superbly-written trio of murder mysteries, Keith Heller follows the career of George Man, a parish watchman in 18th-century London ‹ then among the seamiest, most dangerous cities in the world. As Man works the watch, patrolling its fetid slums and treacherous back streets, he opens the door to an underworld of thieves and prostitutes, white slavers and murders.
