Like the author’s previous book The Barlow Murders, most of the action in this book takes place in the fictitious town of Barlow, on the south bank of the River Tyne, although it does cover other real towns in the North-East of England where the author was a police officer.
The time period for this gruesome collection of stories is set between the two World Wars and covers a wide variety of crimes. Once again it gives a grim picture of the ultimate penalty for murder which then existed. The storyline is both light and dark, but full of events and happenings. It is about people and how they interact and has a certain grimness which suits its Northern setting.
