The Yard is by Alex Grecian. The first book in the Scotland Yard's Murder Squad series. Scotland Yard is in turmoil; they failed to find Jack the Ripper and the populace of London has lost faith in them. A new "murder squad" has been created to deal only with murders. Now another killer has surfaced and is killing policeman and Inspector Day and the other detectives must catch him before they are next on the list. Dr. Bernard Kingsley, the Yard’s first forensic pathologist, is a totally enjoyable character. A great vacation read!
