  • "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
