Murder as a Fine Art

(2013)
(The first book in the Thomas De Quincey Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
Thomas De Quincey, best known for his memoir Confessions of an Opium Eater, is the prime suspect in a series of horrific murders that paralyze London.

The killer seems to be imitating De Quincey's true-crime essay "On Murder Considered to be One of the Fine Arts." Desperate to prevent more atrocities but crippled by opium addiction, De Quincey is aided by his brilliant daughter, Emily, as well as two determined Scotland Yard detectives.

MURDER AS A FINE ART recreates gaslit London as a battleground between a literary luminary and a master killer whose secrets are deeply entwinted with De Quincey's own, in a riveting thriller that brings to mind the likes of Dan Simmons' Drood, Matthew Pearl's The Dante Club and Caleb Carr's The Alienist.
