Product Description

London, 1841. Returned from their adventures in India, Jeremiah Blake and William Avery have both had their difficulties adapting to life in Victorian England. Moreover, time and distance have weakened the close bond between them, forged in the jungles of India. Then a shocking series of murders in the world of London's gutter press forces them back together.

The police seem mysteriously unwilling to investigate, then connections emerge between the murdered men and the growing and unpredictable movement demanding the right to vote for all. In the back streets of Drury Lane, among criminals, whores, pornographers, and missionaries, Blake and Avery must race against time to find the culprit before he kills again. But what if the murderer is being protected by some of the highest powers in the land?


"British actor Wyndham uses an educated, eager voice for the whodunit's narrator, Avery, who naively expects the best from people. . . . Wyndham conveys surprise so effectively you can almost hear his jaw drop." —Publishers Weekly Audio Review

"[H]istorical mystery fans will find much to relish." —AudioFile

"Recommended for its fast-paced action, contemporary issues, and Wyndham's excellent presentation." —Sound Commentary

"Narrator Wyndham brilliantly evokes the Victorian streets of London with Avery’s clipped, country-gentleman cadence, contrasted with vocal characterizations of gritty street denizens and pompous nobility." —Booklist
