Inspector of the Dead : Thomas and Emily De Quincey 2, Paperback / softback Book

Inspector of the Dead : Thomas and Emily De Quincey 2 Paperback / softback

Part of the Victorian De Quincey mysteries series

Paperback / softback

Description

The year is 1855. The Crimean war is raging. The British government has fallen. The Empire itself hangs in the balance. And then the murders start... Someone is targeting members of London's elite - leaving with each corpse the names of men who failed to assassinate Queen Victoria.

It's clear that Victoria will be the ultimate victim.

As the notorious Opium-Eater Thomas De Quincey and his daughter Emily race to save her, they uncover the heart-breaking past of a man whose lust for revenge has destroyed his soul. Based on actual attempts to assassinate the queen, Inspector of the Dead brilliantly merges fact with fiction, bringing a bloody chapter of Victorian England to vivid, pulse-pounding life.
