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.

  1. Downright funny, especially in the beginning. The humor can catch you off guard, but in the end the book approaches its own death weighted down with plot twists. To get more info please visit www.plagiarismdetect.com.
