The Color of DeathBook - 2000
Packed with rich historical detail, colorful characters, and gripping plotlines, this series has been hailed as "a joy to read" (The Wall Street Journal) and "a rich, rewarding trip for everyone" (The New York Times). Now, in The Color of Death, Sir John and his young assistant, Jeremy, face one of the most sinister crime waves of their time. Suspicion and fear are running high in London, as a ruthless gang of black criminals terrorizes the town in a spree of robbery and murder. Ladies are held at gunpoint in their homes, innocent men are shot, and a young maid's throat is slahed from ear to ear. When Sir John and Jeremy set out to find out who is behind the menace, they discover that the difference between black and white is not as simple as it seems-and learn that the deeds being committed are even darker than imagined.
