Blackstone and the New World (Inspector Sam Blackstone Mysteries)

Blackstone and the New World

It is a worried letter for Tom Yardley, an old army comrade who once saved his life, that takes Inspector Sam Blackstone to the salt mining village of Marston. But by the time he arrives there, Yardley is already dead blown to pieces in what was apparently a freak accident.

Acting strictly unofficially, Blackstone begins to investigate Yardley's convenient death. It does not take him long to realize that there is true evil lurking in and under the village William Holt, a reclusive millionaire businessman, has been kidnapped from his grand Coney Island home after the brutal murder of his two bodyguards. Once he arrives at the front line, it does not take him long to realise that he is completely out of his depth.

The officers resent his presence, and the enlisted men refuse - or do not dare - to talk to him. Ordinarily, this would be a run-of-the-mill incident, but in this particular case, Inspector Blackstone quickly realizes he is well and truly out of his depth. The clothes may belong to a poor man, but the face does not; and to Blackstone, the aristocracy are in themselves a mystery whose authority far outweighs his own. Blackstone's horizons are to be widened still further as the investigation leads him to Little Russia, an emigre area where he finds still more people who aren't used to taking the British bobby remotely seriously.

Yet if Blackstone is investigating a simple robbery, why is there an attempt on his life the moment he sets foot in Russia — an attempt which would have succeeded but for the intervention of mysterious masked figures? While this is first and foremost an intelligent murder mystery featuring the decent, gifted, irascible Blackstone, it is also a story about the brutality of war, the blatant snobbery of the British upper class in the early twentieth century, and the heart-breaking bravery of those who fought in WWI. William Holt, a reclusive millionaire businessman, has been kidnapped from his grand Coney Island home after the brutal murder of his two bodyguards.

Soon, a huge ransom is demanded, and the victim's two sons are given just days to find the money. Inspector Sam Blackstone, now seconded to the New York Police Department, and his partner, Alex Meade, are charged with solving the case, but they'll need to keep their wits about them if they are to solve it in time.
