The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): The Yard (Scotland Yard's Murder Squad #1) by Alex Grecian

On Friday's I take part in three weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, and Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader.  For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. 

Happy Friday everyone!  This week I'm spotlighting one of my current Name-a-Thon reads, The Yard (Scotland Yard's Murder Squad #1) by Alex Grecian.  I'm also be reading this for the Popsugar Reading Challenge.  As a fan of The Alienist, I'm really enjoying this so far.


London, 1889

Nobody noticed when Inspector Christian Little of Scotland Yard disappeared and nobody was looking for him when he was found.


'So what do you think?  We're looking for a gardener perhaps?'
