Set in London in the era of Jack the Ripper, Lovesy's novel gives us the story of the trial of Miriam Cromer, a beautiful and elegant woman brought to justice for the crime of murder by poisoning. Detective Cribb races the clock to vindicate the lady before she meets the hangman. Meticulous research, ingenious plotting, and deadpan humor - it's all here, in a book that the mistress of psychological suspense, Ruth Rendell, calls "quite the best novel of detection I have read for a long time."
