Overview: Devoured

Devourd (A Hatton & Roumonde Mystery) is a book authored by D.E Merdith. The story is of mystery and detectives. The interesting story does not allow one to put down the book until it is fully read. The story goes like this. A killer is chased by one of the London's first forensic detectives. The entire London is wrapped with fear-filled fascination. The craze of collecting specimen is increasing, and the jungle discoveries are giving a new dimension to the story that is unimaginable. The new evolution theories disturb the power balance causing menace in the city.

More about the book

Adolphus Hatton and his assistant Albert Roumande are called in to inspect Lady Bessingham murdered in her bedroom. She was surrounded by her huge compilation of fossils and tribal masks. Hatton and Roumande are the best in the new and suspicious world autopsy examinations and forensics. But the crime scene is not limited to one room. In their hard work to assist Scotland Yard's well-known examiner, Adams track down the Lady's killer. Hatton and Roumande expose a track of murders all linked to a pack of subversive letters that, if in print, would change the face of society and religion irreversibly. Denise Meredith's deliberate prose and eye for fine fact move flawlessly from the dirty docks on the Isle of Dogs to the drawing rooms of London's higher class and jungles of Borneo. Her slow burning mystery puts up to an appalling end, overriding victims and Victorian London as it goes.

D.E. Meredith studied English in Cambridge and ran a press and land mine campaigns for the Red Cross. She travelled extensively to Bosnia, Afghanistan and Rwanda during the conflicts. She served as a consultant in media relations for Greenpeace and other worthy causes before embarking on "The Hatton and Roumande Mysteries" series for St Martin's Press (DEVOURED, Oct 2010, THE DEVIL'S RIBBON Oct 2011).

     (A Hatton & Roumonde Mystery) 23 November, 2013 On Junglee.com
    "devoured it"
    Published on 15 October, 2013
    London, Victorian London is the place and the time is nineteenth century . London, the capital of the mightiest empire on the face of the earth in ushering in the new age of science and technology. New invention and discoveries are the call of the day. One such novelty is Forensics, a new branch of science dealing with examination of cadavers and crime scenes. And this one of the many reasons why the elite class of London is finding it hard to accept and Our protagonist and the purveyor of this science is Prof. Adolphus Hatton , the chief forensic examiner at the St. Bart hospital.
    One fine morning Prof. Hutton was summoned by Scotland Yard’s Inspector Adam to assist him in the murder of a wealthy socialite in the suburb of London .Dr. Hatton and his French assistant Roumande are bewildered by the strange crimes engulfing the street of London and the bodies just keep on arriving at the morgue at the St. Bart. As the trio investigates the murder, they embark on a journey which hen

    Devoured , has parallel plots running at the beginning and had me stumped at times but at the end it came in together to fit into a befitting ending. I was rather taken by surprise by the book , it is too good to be the debut novel.

    This book is brilliantly researched as is evident in the story . And about Prof. Hatton , he is a remarkable character , he is brilliant , astute and quite archaic (Archaic to me but quite modern to the citizenry of 19 th century London.) This character of Prof. Hatton shows a lot of promise and can be a remarkable one but he has a long journey to cover , a lot more to evolve to get itched in the pages of history books. The most amazing thing about the book is the exemplary narration and that’s include its description of the of Victorian London, it’s immaculate and it transports you straight onto the streets of London without any effort.
    It was a brilliant read , true to the effort of the author and justifying your effort in reading this book.
    And the one of the most notable thing about the book is the cover design , simply superb. Hats off to the design team.
    Having said that I will also add that this book also had some disappointments, foremost of them was the length judging by the pace at the start of the book I felt that the story was truncated at the end .It fell short by some fifty pages. (And of course it is a matter of personal perspective and an author can only do his/her best.)
    Devoured , the debut novel of D.E Meredith is a runaway hit , all in all it’s an attractive prospect.
