  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 2/8/2014

    " Peter Ackroyd obviously knows his London history. The atmosphere in the book completely comes alive, but the mystery portion was so-so. "

    " a good fun historic romp "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Magid | 1/21/2014

    " Is Peter Ackroyd the best *London* writer? Probably. This book is an amazing tapestry of fact and fiction, weaving in and out of the mysterious Edwardian city streets. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 1/18/2014

    " This is a good historical novel but not for YA - this is adult. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 1/16/2014

    " Everything I've come to expect from this author -- insanely atmospheric and erudite. A complex web of characters and philosophies. A dense, enigmatic pleasure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cath Murphy | 1/6/2014

    " Expected to enjoy this much more than I did. Ackroyd is an expert on London - that shows in the text - but if the setting is wonderfully rendered, the characters are seen from a distance. Chilly, unabsorbing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 12/27/2013

    " Based on a true story it seems of a lesser known serial killer in London of yore, this book follows an acting troop, and the goings on in the seedier part of town. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Rayner | 12/7/2013

    " i enjoyed this book, captured the time period and music hall world really well. will look out for his other books now. "

    " A novel based on the true events of the Limehouse Murders in Victorian England. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney | 7/20/2013

    " A bizarre mix of history and fiction takes creative license with creative processes, but ultimately successful as a story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sundry | 4/2/2013

    " Peter Ackroyd's historical novels are always an amazing trip. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 1/20/2013

    " Very clever twist at the end. The only problem was that I had already guessed it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan Pierce | 9/17/2012

    " Slightly overwritten (use of 10 words when 2 will do) but a very good story. Very atmospheric. Especially interesting to me for it's depiction of Victorian era Limehouse because it's where I live now. "

    " Sorry, Professor Morrison, but this one was no good. But the other books on the syllabus were great! Does that make it better? "
