Journal Entry 1 by rhythmbiscuit from Northglenn, Colorado USA on Friday, September 30, 2005
From Cornwell's site:
"Gallows Thief is a detective story, set in Regency London, a time when there were no detectives as such. There was a very busy gallows, however. This was a period when the English and Welsh gallows were at their busiest and, very occasionally, the government appointed an ‘Investigator’ to look into a conviction. That Investigator is my hero and detective, a man who was an army officer, but who, since the battle of Waterloo (it had to get in somehow) has fallen on hard times."
