9780099469247: The Last Pleasure Garden: (Inspector Webb 3)

A sinister figure stalks the gas-lit groves of Cremorne Gardens, the last pleasure-ground on the banks of the Thames. His weapon, a sharp pair of scissors. His victims, young women in the first bloom of youth. HIs crime - merely to remove a lock of their hair. Inspector Decimus Webb of Scotland Yard suspects a harmless lunatic is at large. But when morbid obsession turns to murder, even Webb's loyal sergeant begins to doubt his judgement.

As the press and his superiors clamour for answers, Webb's investigations lead him to Rose Perfitt, aspiring debutante and daughter of a respectable stock-broker. Will she fall prey to 'The Cutter' or does a worse fate beckon? One thing is certain - only Decimus Webb can save her.

Lee Jackson's third Inspector Webb novel takes the reader into the forgotten world of the Victorian pleasure-garden, in a gripping mystery of garish gas-light and dark secrets.

Review:

"Jackson's series is the best of current Victorian mysteries" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Victorian London is brought vividly to life from the very beginning... plenty of wry humour ...and engrossing historical detail" ( Time Out)

"'Lee Jackson's Dickensian style of narrative gives and authentic Victorian voice to A Metropolitan Murder... Once again Mr. Jackson has succeeded in creating the atmosphere of nineteenth-century London, with its respectable veneer hiding a vicious underworld'" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"'Full of power and substance London Dust... is a powerful and evocative novel that brings the past, and its dead, to life again'" ( Guardian)

Book Description:

'Victorian London is vividly brought to life...For an atmospheric picture of the period, it's hard to beat' Sunday Telegraph
