David Morrell Press Reviews

A gaslit gallop through Victorian London -  Financial Times

 

A terrific read. As one would expect of Morrell, it is compulsive and thrilling, but its use of de Quincey also allows for discursions that are both funny and touching - de Quincey and his daughter are great additions to the detective stage, and I hope we will have a lot more of them to come. -- Judith Flanders, author of The Invention of Murder
