Dear Librarians,

My previous Victorian thriller, Murder as a Fine Art, received the ALA reader's guide award for best mystery of 2013. INSPECTOR OF THE DEAD brings back opium-eater Thomas De Quincey, one of the most notorious and brilliant literary personalities of the Victorian era. He influenced Edgar Allan Poe, who in turn influenced Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. Again blending fact and fiction, his new adventure is set against the Crimean War and the real attempts to assassinate Queen Victoria.
