Historical novels often illuminate past times, but this one adds extra layers of grime, soot, filth and deprivation: Victorian London was an appallingly dangerous and unhealthy place to live unless you were the privileges top percents. The author goes on to add layers of gore as Day tracks the killer: is it Jack the Ripper? If not, why did the detective die? It's a 5, and a fabulous start to a fascinating series.
