A brilliant masterpiece of literary historical suspense. The mansions and gutters of Victorian London come to life when Charles Maddox, a disgraced police officer turned independent detective, is called to the offices of Edward Tulkinghorn, London's most powerful solicitor and one of its most dangerous men. Tulkinghorn's client has been sent threatening letters, and Charles is hired to find the culprit. To solve this first mystery, he needs the help of his uncle, England's greatest detective, whose failing health belies occasional flickers of his old genius.
