In this book, they are called in to investigate the death of Charles Dickens.
Mixing fact and fiction the author, with a great sense of history, a time and place, weaves a credible tale of intrigue and mystery into the life and death of the great author.
M.J.Trow was able to call on some of the uncertainties in Dickens death and play on some of the more
salacious gossip surrounding his terms of research and women.
I loved the idea of joy and disappointment about being 'named' in a Dickens novel and the fact that characters in his household perpetuated certain names found in those books.
The investigation is difficult in that everyone 'loved' the author and no-one wanted to speak ill of him or betray some of his secrets.
This book is enriched by further plot directions as others come to the private enquiry agents for help.
However, Trow has a steady hand and a clever plot development as he draws so much out of this death/murder that has been deemed a simple stroke. So we have police corruption, internal disputes with Dickens publishers, drugs, opium dens and improper acts between men to conjur with all tied up neatly in Victorian England.
A clever and entertaining read whether you care for a Christmas Carol or any Dickensian work.
