Simply a good read.
For a crime novel reader this is a good read, entertaining and not too far fetched portraying characters well and reflecting on medical conditions as a compassionate person would at the time. I was a little worried that it would dwell on Jack the Ripper and various theories about who he was but it doesn't. The book pitches it just right in the main only mentioning him where it relevant and reflecting on the mood of the general population of London following a time of Jack. So story line good, characters good and pace good too. It's all good really.

What made the experience of listening to The Yard the most enjoyable?
The narration was fantastic. The writing was very good. The story was paced well.
Who was your favorite character and why?
All of them really. Good characterisations within this period setting
Have you listened to any of Christopher Saul’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No, but will listen again. He controls the story well. Does not vocally exaggerate his characters. Very easy to my ear.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Suspenseful period detective story at its best.
Any additional comments?
Loved the fact that the story was not littered with useless observations. It remained factual and was wrapped up well. No loose ends.
