    Dense novel with lots of detail and interesting convoluted plot.

    This book is not a quick read, but the characters and plot are interesting and unusual, with occasional unexpected twists. I am a fast reader and it took me several days ( a plus in my opinion). Interesting period detail.
    I enjoyed it a lot.

    more from this reviewer

    Magnificent novel

    Similar to "The Meaning of Night", Michael Cox does a superb job in the art of storytelling. He articulates each scene extremely well and plays to the senses. There are not too many twists or surprises, but enough to keep you second-guessing what the truth is. A lovely story, great follow-up to the first book, and a recommended reading to anyone who loves fiction.

    good book

    easily kept interest up, a lot of characters with old English names that are hard to keep track of, but still a worthwhile read.

    I Also Recommend:

    A unexpected but welcome sequel.

    The characters in this book were very engaging and the plot was tremendous, although I do recommend reading "The Meaning of Night" first, as I feel that would give all elements of the book more meaning to the reader. Like the first, the most interesting element of the book to me was the Victorian drama of the ends versus the means, or the struggle between personal feeling and strength of will. I only bread the book recently and am saddened to find that the author has passed away and that there will be no more writing from Mr. Cox. I am glad we received from him what we could and echo the sentiments of a previous reviewer: Bravo, sir!
