Subtitled: A Shocking Murder and the Undoing of a Great Victorian Detective. Something like a perfect book-club book, in that it has a compelling mystery at the heart of it, and uses that mystery as a lens to examine many aspects of Victorian culture, especially ideas of family and the role of the mass media in the 1860s. Celebrities like Dickens and Wilkie Collins make cameos. Recommended.
