In the early days of criminal investigation, before guilt and innocence were determined by forensic science, there was a detective, “a man of mystery”, with an uncanny ability to read the human character and an unswerving instinct for the truth. In Victorian England, justice depended onThe Suspicions of Mr Whicher. Beyond the Pale Whicher is hired by his one-time political master, the former Home Secretary, Sir Edward Shore, to investigate violent threats made against his son, who has recently returned from India with his young family. Sir Edward is desperate to avoid a damaging scandal and, even after a murder, refuses to let Whicher involve his former colleagues in the Metropolitan Police. Whicher’s quest for justice, takes him into the most dangerous corners of London’s docks and to the exposure of a terrible crime and brings him into contact with a woman who touches his heart. The Ties That Bind Commissioned by a wealthy west-country landowner, Sir Henry Coverley, private inquiry agent, Jack Whicher reluctantly takes on a divorce case, following Sir Henry’s young wife as she meets her lover for a romantic assignation in London. But one of the key witnesses mysteriously fails to attend the divorce court and an apparently simple case of adultery spirals into something darker, which leads Whicher into the heart of the English countryside and to the uncovering of the most disturbing and destructive of secrets.
