From award-winning author John MacLachlan Gray comes a mesmerizing novel of corruption and murder through the looking-glass of Victorian London. Edmund Whitty writes lurid articles for the London press. He's investigating a quack psychic who has been murdered after revealing a scandal involving Whitty's late brother. Whitty's search for the truth takes him back to Oxford, where a brilliant and eccentric cleric who delights in playing croquet, telling children's stories and taking little girls' pictures, may or may not be involved with a murderous ring of child pornographers. Gray, who evoked "the mean streets and byways of 1852 London with a skill worthy of Dickens"(Publishers Weekly) inThe Fiend in Human,spins an even more irresistible tale of the dark secrets behind the facades of Victorian respectability.
