Delve into the underworld of Victorian London, as two college friends, medical student Stephen and clergyman Edward, find themselves living in the depths of Jericho with the whores and taverns as they try to make ends meet.

On meeting the beautiful Diana, Stephen sees his chance to help the helpless, but Edward believes there is more to the woman than meets the eye. Written with a flair for Victorian English, this gothic thriller immerses you in 1887 Oxford as Stephen and Edward find themselves in the middle of a much larger and dangerous plot. This is a treat for those who enjoy the likes of Sherlock Holmes and Sarah Waters, and promises to keep you on your toes until the last page.
