'An entertaining tale takes us deep into the seamy side of Victorian London' The Times London 1888: George 'Zulu' Hart is the mixed-race illegitimate son of a Dublin actress and (he suspects) the Duke of Cambridge, commander-in-chief of the army. George has fought his way through wars in Africa and Afghanistan, won the VC and married his sweetheart, but he's also a gambler, short of money and in no position to turn down the job of 'minder' to Prince Albert Victor, second in line to the throne. George is to befriend the charming young cavalry officer and keep him out of trouble - no easy task, given that the Prince is a known target for Irish nationalist assassins, while his secret sexual orientation leaves him open to blackmail and scandal. To make matters worse, the Prince is also in the habit of heading out late at night to sample the dubious pleasures of the East End. Both outsiders in their different ways, perhaps the two men have more in common than they know, but when a series of horrible murders begins in Whitechapel, on just the nights the Prince has been there, George is drawn into an investigation which forces him to confront the unthinkable... A brilliant standalone adventure based on detailed research, this is a thrilling novel of suspense and a fascinating new twist on the Jack the Ripper story.

Gems like this are too rare. I was hooked in ten pages. * Conn Iggulden on ZULU HART * Let's hope that Saul David's new character will be reappearing . . . a terrific adventure * Rodney Troubridge on ZULU HART * A Victorian adventure as big as the veldt and chewier than buffalo biltong . . . real figures of the period are endowed with motive, intent and dialogue that may be fictitious but are entirely convincing * <i>Sunday Telegraph</i> on ZULU HART * David is a popular historian with a rare talent . . . An unashamed crowd-pleaser with a compelling, sexy hero who could give Cornwell's Sharpe a run for his money. * <i>The Times</i> on ZULU HART * A first-rate historian, now a masterly story-teller * Bernard Cornwell on ZULU HART * There is no escaping the grip of [David's] second Hart novel . . . Hart is a proper boy's own hero * <i>Daily Telegraph</i> * As precocious as ever, our daredevil hero is once again in the thick of things as he takes on anyone and everyone who dares to cross his path. Great stuff. * <i>Daily Mail</i> * This fast paced plot allows little time to catch your breath as Hart pursues the killer. The writing is tight and punchy getting across the energy and essential essence of the hero George Hart VC. * Shots * Saul David cunningly weaves together history and fiction to breathe new life into old ideas about the killings. the result is an exciting and entertaining adventure story * BBC History Magazine * Enjoyable, fast-moving and full of suspense, with the final outcome unanticipated, what's not to like! * Breakaway Reviewers * An entertaining tale takes us deep into the seamy side of Victorian London * The Times *
