Description

The notorious Opium-Eater returns in the sensational climax to David Morrell's acclaimed Victorian mystery trilogy.Ruler of the Night blends fact and fiction to an exceptional degree, this time focusing on an actual Victorian murder so startling that it changed the culture - in this case, the first murder on an English train, its brutality stoking fears that the newly invented railway would, as one newspaper predicted, 'annihilate time and space.'As they track the killer through the harrowing fogbound streets of 1855 London Thomas De Quincey and his irrepressible daughter, Emily, confront their most ruthless enemy.

The stakes couldn't be greater: both the heart of Victorian society and De Quincey's tormented soul.

The fast-paced narrative matches the speed with which the railway changed Victorian life as master storyteller David Morrell transports readers back in time, away from the modern world and into the dangerous shadows of the past.
