"In this startling reconsideration of the Victorians and their worlds, the author sheds light into the dark corners of an age notorious for its smug prudery and repressive official consciousness, exposing a bizarre demimonde where violence and brutality reigned at the heart of the burgeoning British Empire. A dark world mirrored not only in the considerable newspaper coverage of the most shocking criminal cases of the day, but in the so-called "Sensation" novels which flourished during the 1850s and 1860s as well." 10.00
