Death at the Priory: Sex, Love, and Murder in Victorian England
Author: James Ruddick
Country: United Kingdom
- From an Amazon reader: "I read this book in England in October and considered it to be the book of the year. Ruddick's strength is his ability to take lots of disparate themes and thread them all together in a thrilling page-turner. On one level the book is a straightforward murder mystery ... But then Ruddick begins sowing into the story other dimensions: he looks at the repressive nature of Victorian society .... He brings to life the atmosphere of London in 1876)." (2001)
