Description
It is ten days before the holiday, in this eighth Christmas mystery by Anne Perry, from 2010, and an icy wind cuts through Victorian London as wealthy James Wentworth grieves over his reckless son Lucien, lured into a deadly world of drugs and wild passion. Wentworth's only hope is his old friend Henry Rathbone, who volunteers to search for the prodigal son. Rathbone knows nothing of the sensation-obsessed underworld where Lucien now dwells, but he acquires two unexpected new companions who do: Squeaky Robinson, a reformed brothel-keeper who now works in Hester Monk's medical clinic, and Crow, a mysterious slum doctor who turns no one away. No one else re-creates the atmosphere of gas-lit London quite like Edgar Award winner Anne Perry, creator of both the Thomas and Charlotte Pitt series and the William and Hester Monk series of Victorian-era detective fiction, as well as her annual standalone Christmas specials, which star peripheral characters from the Pitt or Monk series.
