White Stone Day

352 pages6 hours


From award-winning author John MacLachlan Gray comes a mesmerizing novel of corruption and murder through the looking-glass of Victorian London.

Edmund Whitty writes lurid articles for the London press. He’s investigating a quack psychic who has been murdered after revealing a scandal involving Whitty’s late brother. Whitty’s search for the truth takes him back to Oxford, where a brilliant and eccentric cleric who delights in playing croquet, telling children’s stories and taking little girls’ pictures, may or may not be involved with a murderous ring of child pornographers. Gray, who evoked “the mean streets and byways of 1852 London with a skill worthy of Dickens” (Publishers Weekly) in The Fiend in Human, spins an even more irresistible tale of the dark secrets behind the facades of Victorian respectability.
