"Throw in Buffalo Bill, a Wild West show, murders that may or may not be connected to Jack The Ripper, and you have a really hot read. I don't want to say too much for fear of giving something away, but it's a well-written yarn and you will get hooked right away. It's also, for me, a nice change of pace from the modern urban hard-boiled junk I've been digesting lately." From the review of A Policeman's Lot by author, Brian Drake which can be HERE

The above is taken from a review from author, Brian Drake - A Policeman's Lot is available in both standard eBook and Kindle.

Think you know the Jack the Ripper story?
Think again!
Inspector Frank Parade carries out his daily duties in the Welsh industrial town of Pontypridd, duties complicated by the unprecedented presence of 500 members of Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West Show encamped outside the town, not to mention the thousands attending the show every day.  A series of depraved murders quickly makes things even more complicated.  Buffalo Bill stands squarely in his path when Parade tries to investigate the likely possibility that one of the hundreds of show members is involved.  And soon enough Parade’s own superiors are blocking his inquires, too.  Still more deaths occur as Parade sifts through the thin evidence available and finds a trail that may lead to the perpetrator of the most heinous crime of the 19th Century—London’s “Ripper” murders. 
Shocking revelations come thick and fast.
 The greatest criminal mystery in history is about to be solved by a Welsh copper and an American Legend.
