Review

Riveting! With this mesmerizing series, David Morrell doesn't just delve into the world of Victorian England - he delves into the heart of evil, pitting one man's opium-skewed brilliance against a society where appearances are everything...and the most vicious killers lurk closer than anyone thinks. (Lisa Gardner, author of Fear Nothing)

Morrell expertly captures in prose the economic and political divisions of Victorian society, but he leavens his social commentary with moments of high adventure. (Kirkus Reviews)

A feat of brilliant storytelling (Huffington Post)

Murder as a Fine Art was fantastic, and Inspector of the Dead is even better...Morrell is darkly inventive with the murders and cleverly mines very real history...The author brings each character back to life, and they spring fully formed from the page...I dare you to put this down once you've picked it up! (My Bookish Ways)

Praise for David Morrell (.)

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)

[An] exceptional historical mystery...page-flipping action, taut atmosphere, and multifaceted characters (Booklist)

Shockingly real...Morrell's thorough and erudite research of the people and culture of the British Empire's heyday informs every page. A literary thriller that pushes the envelope of fear (Associated Press)

Masterful...brilliantly plotted....evokes 1854 London with such finesse that you'll hear the hooves clattering on cobblestones (Entertainment Weekly)

Book Description

By 1855, there had been six attempts to kill Queen Victoria. In Inspector of the Dead a seventh attempt will occur... Thomas De Quincey returns to the gaslit streets of London to solve a case of murder and assassination.
