Crooked Mile


    On a cold winter's night, just before Christmas 1887, an event occurred in a public house in the small market town of Kelsford which was to set in motion a train of events which no one could have foreseen… A bungled robbery of the Shires Canal Company payroll by a unit of the Fenian Irish Brotherhood, followed by the murder, on a deserted towpath, of one of the gang members… And the suspicious death of a local hack master. What is the role played by Ruth Samuels - a wealthy widow and banker in the secret Jewish organisation, 'The Pipeline'? For Thomas Norton of the Kelsford Detective Department, this was to be an enquiry which would move across Europe into the Tsarist Empire and back to New York, before plunging into the sinister alleyways of Jack the Ripper's Whitechapel.
