A dead prostitute in Victorian Edinburgh discovered by a trainee doctor. Who decides to keep quiet. Great start.
A highly original Victorian murder mystery, which is totally absorbing with a unique central character.
A nostalgic read in more ways than one. First of all I hail from the city of Liverpool and the references to many of the places, such as Lime Street, the Liverpool Royal Infirmary and the Blue Coat School, as well as the statesmen who also came from the city, bring the comfort of recognition.
This atmospheric and creepy ghost story is full of nostalgia for me. It is one of the earliest ghost stories that I can remember, and it frightened me to death. Now as an adult, finding myself alone at Halloween, I decided to read it again.
