After killing the red-haired man, I took myself off to Quinn's for an oyster supper. So begins the extraordinary story of Edward Glyver - booklover, scholar, and murderer. As a young boy, Glyver always believed he was destined for greatness, and a chance discovery convinces him that he was right. Greatness does await him, along with immense wealth and influence. Overwhelmed by his discovery, he will stop at nothing to win back a prize that he knows is rightfully his.

Glyver's path to reclaim his prize leads him from the depths of Victorian London, with its foggy streets, brothels, and opium dens, to Evenwood, one of England's most beautiful and enchanting country houses, and finally to a consuming love for the beautiful but enigmatic Emily Carteret. His is a story of betrayal and treachery, of death and delusion, of ruthless obsession and ambition. And at every turn, driving Glyver irresistibly onward, is his deadly rival: the poet-criminal Phoebus Rainsford Daunt.

The Meaning of Night is an enthralling novel that will captivate listeners right up to its final thrilling revelation. Thirty years in the making, this debut from Michael Cox has earned starred reviews from Booklist, Kirkus Reviews, and Publishers Weekly. Download and start listening now!

    " Beautifully written--it has great tension. The narrative voice is extremely strong, and the plot is excellent. "

    " This was a pretty good book - but long, and I could guess what was going to happen before it did - a little too drawn out for my taste, but a fun read. "

    " So.......I dont even know what to say. I dont want to totally bash this book, Im sure that somebodyc could fall completely in love with this book....someone with a lot more patience than me. First of all, I LOVE victorian novels..l.LOVE them. When I first heard about this book I was really excited and bought it right away. The author does a great job with the histor and facts of the Victorian age, but seroiosly half this book could have been cut out. The author just went on and on and on. I felt that I wasted part of my life reading this book. Im not saying dont read it, Im just saying this book def was not for me. I will not be reading any other books from this author. "
