The Fiend in Human - John MacLachlan Gray

I'm writing a quick entry to get myself caught up.  I've been reading, but not very good about blogging.  I read The Fiend in Human by John MacLachlan Gray on the recommendation of William Gibson, one of my favorite writers.

This novel is a weird mashup of crime novel, journalism mystery and love story set in Victorian London.  It has that great grinding quality to it, which makes for a great crime novel.  The entire story is told from the perspective of Edmund Whitty, a journalist for The Falcon, a London newspaper.

A highly recommended mashup of journalism, crime and historical fiction.
