Inspector Faro

More Description

The year is 1860, and Inspector Faro has been transported back to one of the darkest moments of his career the chase of the notorious Macheath across the Scottish border to the Kent countryside. Discovering that the devious criminal has escaped from the local jail and is on the run in the area, Faro ensconces himself in the mansion of an old friend, Erland Flett, living amid the bohemian lifestyles of resident artists and their models while he continues his search for his nemesis. The rural tranquillity is suddenly disrupted by the burglary of a nearby mansion; the young maid who discovered the break-in has mysteriously disappeared. Faro knows who the culprit is, but he must struggle against the indifference of the rural police force, and the secrets of the obstructive locals, to find both Macheath and his potential victim before it is too late. The truth is much closer, and its quest more dangerous, than anyone could have imagined. In this atmospheric tale of intrigue and corruption, Knight brings back her much-loved character, Inspector Faro, in the most defining and remarkable investigation of his career.


"Knight's writing style is painterly - she is an accomplished artist, herself - and I really felt I was there with Faro as he battles his implacable foe, hamstrung by indifferent local policing and Victorian social conventions. These books are a joy, and some of the earlier stories are now quite hard to get hold of, but I recommend reading any you can find. This one is a good start, as it takes pace early in the chronology of the series."
