Walker/Goodall, Jane /Paper/0733618979/S053-D2
Detective Briony Williams is a rookie appointed to an all-male team investigating a bizarre murder at an anatomy college in Bloomsbury. Her superiors constantly make her feel left out. But a killer obsessed with following Jack the Ripper soon changes that. The killer is a practised anatomist with a theatrical streak. He arranges his victims bodies in cruel parodies of famous satirical engravings by Hogarth. As the summer and the swinging ’60s wind to a terrible climax, this multilayered thriller brings the startling and terrible strands of the story together.
The Walker is an unforgettable crime debut that heralds a major new voice in Australian crime writing.
