The Yard, by Alex Grecian

This is the first book in Grecian's Scotland Yard series featuring Detective Walter Day, Dr. Bernard Kingsley, and Constable/Sgt. Hammersmith.  The story takes place just after Jack the Ripper's rampage, when the police are mistrusted and sometimes despised, forensic science is just beginning to play a role in crime solving, and Victorian London is a smelly and unhealthy place for a lot of people -- particularly men with beards and police inspectors.
