Lestrade and the Sawdust Ring
"Walk Up! Walk Up! Right this way for the greatest show on earth. It is 1879, and the young Detective-Sergeant Sholto Lestrade has his work cut out for him as he investigates mysterious going-on at "Lord" George Sanger's Circus. First, the best juggler in Europe is shot in full view of a thousand people. Then Huge Hughie the dwarf dies an agonizing death under the Ether Trick. Finally, the Great Bolus dies by swallowing the wrong sword. And all of this comes after two bodies are found with multiple slashes." "What is the link with Mr. Howard Vincent, founder of the Criminal Investigative Division? And has this anything to do with Disraeli, the latest occupant at Number Ten Downing Street?"--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
