True, his business was still crime.

Gwendoline Butler asserts the moral right to be identified as the author of this work. True, his business was still crime. In the area for which he was now Head Officer, with the provisional title of Chief Commander (a borrowing from the Met, as he was uneasily aware), the old boroughs of Spinnergate, Leathergate, Swinehouse and Easthythe joined together to form a new unit, the crimes were what they had always been through the centuries: mugging, breaking and entering, armed robbery and. murder.

Book in the John Coffin Mystery Series). Scotland Yard sleuth John Coffin's latest case starts with an urn containing a human head and features old unsolved murders, a missing child and a questionable suicide, all connected to the "Black Museum," a gallery of crime and criminals. Not the best book in the Coffin series, but a fun read all the same. This is a reliably entertaining series whose characters keep me interested and reading without relying too much on broadly drawn eccentricities or far-fetched plot points.

  • I enjoyed this book a great deal. I think any Coffin fans would as well. True picture of characters in the former docklands of old London. A new city.

  • Overall, I liked this book, particularly the detail Butler put into the Second City universe and the care she used in portraying the novel's characters. Some of the segues from scene to scene were interesting in an almost cinematic way, and I appreciated how it enhanced the story line.
    I thought, however, that some of the clues should have clicked together in Coffin's mind long before they did, instead of being saved for a somewhat rushed wrap-up at the novel's end. Other than that, my only complaints are Butler's indulgence in confusing head-hopping and annoying comma-spliced sentences.
