Murder As a Fine Art

ALA Reading List Award for Best Mystery GASLIT LONDON IS BROUGHT TO ITS KNEES IN DAVID MORRELL'S BRILLIANT HISTORICAL THRILLER. Thomas De Quincey, infamous for his memoir Confessions of an English Opium-Eater, is the major suspect in a series of ferocious mass murders identical to ones that terrorized London forty-three years earlier. The blueprint for the killings seems to be De Quincey's essay "On Murder Considered as One of the Fine Arts." Desperate to clear his name but crippled by opium addiction, De Quincey is aided by his devoted daughter Emily and a pair of determined Scotland Yard detectives. In Murder as a Fine Art, David Morrell plucks De Quincey, Victorian London, and the Ratcliffe Highway murders from history. Fogbound streets become a battleground between a literary star and a brilliant murderer, whose lives are linked by secrets long buried but never forgotten.

  • "The Ratcliffe Highway murders of 1811 were the most notorious mass killings in their day. Never fully explained, they brought England to the verge of panic. 43 years later, the notorious Thomas De Quincey returns to London. Along with his 'Confessions', he is known for a scandalous essay about the killings. Days after his arrival, a family is killed in the same horrific way as the earlier murders. It seems someone is using the essay as a blueprint - and De Quincey himself is the obvious suspect."@en
