Default Inspector George Clarke

Here's a list of some books related to police and crime you might be interested in

http://historybytheyard.co.uk/good_books.htm

Does anyone know anything about Det. Insp. George Clarke and whether he was on duty during 1888?

The Chieftain - Victorian True crime through the eyes of a Scotland Yard Detective by Chris Payne. This is an account of the life of Detective Chief Inspector George Clarke who was one of the early detectives, rising to be a senior detective at Scotland Yard in a period which saw the rise of Irish terrorism, baby farming cases, and Clarke's involvement in several high profile murder cases. Known as 'The Chieftain', his career ended with retirement after being involved, and acquitted in The Trial of the Detectives, a betting and corruption scandal in 1877. His career therefore spans a really interesting period of metropolitan Police history. More details from the author's website . Published by the History Press. £14.99 paperback
