Bowman's Casebook #2: The Hackney Poisoning

Author: Richard James


'I charge you to find my husband's killer.'

Hackney Workhouse​ is overcrowded, and death is commonplace. Sir Kingdom Fanshawe, the workhouse's benefactor, has had enough and wishes to withdraw his interest. Within hours he is found dead, and Bowman finds one of his own inspectors has a vested interest.


Just what is Inspector Hicks' connection with the workhouse, and why is he withholding vital evidence?

The events in this short story from Bowman's Casebook take place immediately before the second novel, The Devil In The Dock.

The Hackney Poisoning is available FOR FREE to subscribers!
