NOW AN UNMISSABLE FILM STARRING BILL NIGHY, DOUGLAS BOOTH AND OLIVIA COOKE.

'Mesmerising, macabre and totally brilliant' Daily Mail

Before the Ripper, fear had another name.

London, 1880. A series of gruesome murders attributed to the mysterious 'Limehouse Golem' strikes fear into the heart of the capital. Inspector John Kildare must track down this brutal serial killer in the damp, dark alleyways of riverside London. But how does Dan Leno, music hall star extraordinaire, find himself implicated in this crime spree, and what does Elizabeth Cree, on trial for the murder of her husband, have to hide?

Peter Ackroyd brings Victorian London to life in all its guts and glory, as we travel from the glamour of the music hall to the slums of the East End, meeting George Gissing and Karl Marx along the way.

He has pulled off the greatest coup of all, a four-square crime novel...as aesthetically satisfying as it is morally shocking * Independent on Sunday *
Knowledge fuels psychosis, but in Ackroyd's hands it also fuels a flawlessly good read * Observer *
This brilliant novel pervades the midnight movies of the mind and makes the blood run chilly * Daily Mail *
