'An enthralling read' -- DAILY MAIL In the gripping new novel by the author of The Fourteenth Letter, a lawyer in Victorian London must find a man he got off a murder charge - and who seems to have killed again . . .

Victorian London, 1882.

Five years ago, crusading lawyer Cage Lackmann successfully defended Moses Pickering against a charge of murder. Now, a body is found bearing all the disturbing hallmarks of that victim - and Pickering is missing.

Cage's reputation is in tatters, and worse, he is implicated in this new murder by the bitter detective who led the first failed case. Left with no other alternative, Cage must find Pickering to prove his innocence.

Did Cage free a brutal murderer? Or is there something more sinister at work?

The historical context is admirable and convincing * Historical Novel Society (blog) * A wonderfully atmospheric and compelling historical murder mystery * Lynn's Book Blog * The Graves of Whitechapel by Claire Evans is worthy of the highest acclaim. This is a novel that will keep you guessing to the very last chapter * The Coffee Pot Book Club (blog) * The Graves of Whitechapel flows eloquently. Evans utilises the art form to add density to the evolving story with one poem above all - 'The Graves of Whitechapel' - cleverly perpetuating the plot's thickening mysteries * The Courier * A twistingly brilliant tale * Peterborough Evening Telegraph * This is a totally absorbing read from start to finish * Morning Star * This mystery melodrama has a Victorian setting almost Dickensian in its convincing portrayal of the seamier side of fog-wrapped London life . . . An enthralling read * Daily Mail *
