London 1849: A Victorian Murder Story - Michael Alpert An incredibly fascinating read and TOTALLY different than what I thought it was going to be. This book not only tells the story of a true murder case in 1849 London, but looks at London through a sociological study which would cause the murder to occur.What bumped it from a 4 star to a 5 star was the author's reference of literature from that period of time reflecting on society and giving examples. I was simply enthralled with it and couldn't get enough
