Well, this was a great deal of fun! A BIG read. Set in mid-Victorian England it is a murder mystery, a character study, with the era being one of the characters, and a fascinating one as well. The research is impeccable, and if the pacing is a tad slow in parts I didn't mind a bit since I was enjoying the vision so much. The ending might not be entirely satisfying, but still... a fun read.
