Review

"The New Yorker"

All the murders are puzzles, and Palliser constructs his plot like a maze and lures readers into it. The books ruthless consistency of style and the somewhat bleak view of humankind set it apart from the usual thriller.



"The New York Observer"

Enormously enjoyable.



"The Wall Street Journal"

No one is exactly as he seems to be.



"The Washington Post Book World"

Probably generates as much plot per page as is humanly possible to.



"Palo Alto Daily News"

There is little doubt that "The Unburied" confirms to all, British or American, that Palliser is one of the world's most imaginative historical novelists.



"The Wall Street Journal"

The Christmas ghost was a staple of Victorian holiday fiction, and "The Unburied" is an elegant update of the tradition that is both modern in its concerns and wholly convincing as an artifact of another age.



"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

A complex chronicle of evil, immorality, and greed....Both a gifted raconteur and a shrewd observer of human nature, Palliser should win new readers on this side of the Atlantic with this compulsively readable tale.



"The Washington Post Book World"

A fine literary diversion for a winter's night or two....The novel's prose moves swiftly but pauses from time to time for lengthy -- and interesting -- conversations about the nature of religious belief, historical investigation, and marital passion. Palliser even inserts sentences that call to mind tags from nineteenth-century authors like Nietzsche and Thoreau ('When you come to die you'll realize that you have not lived').



"The Guardian" (London)

Charles Palliser now bids to be our leading contemporary Victorian novelist.



"Entertainment Weekly"

As the layers of dirty deeds are unearthed, [the novel] feels like an archaeological dig -- mesmerizing, meticulous.

Book Description

A Victorian tale of murder and deception set in an English cathedral close --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
