When the distinguished Mr. Justice Stafford dies of opium poisoning, his shocking demise resurrects one of the most sensational cases ever to inflame England: the murder five years before of Kingsley Blaine, whose body was found crucified in Farriers' Lane. Amid the public hysteria for revenge, the police had arrested a Jewish actor who was soon condemned to hang. Police Inspector Thomas Pitt, investigating Stafford's death, is drawn into the Farriers' Lane murder as well, for it appears that Stafford may have been about to reopen the case. Pitt receives curiously little help from his colleagues on the force, but his wife, Charlotte, gleans from her social engagements startling insights into both cases. And slowly both Thomas and Charlotte begin to reach for the same sinister and deeply dangerous truth.

For those who like the victorian background and low tech murder mystery gendre, this is a fun read but the author is playing with some very serious themes in 'jew hating' victorian England. I did not feel she treats the implications of the Victorian prejudices with any kind of analysis in hindsight and misses the opportunity to make her murder mystery tales socially relevant for this century. For this reason I think the book is disturbing and I would not recommend it to most readers except as an example of poor writing.
