Description : The million-copy bestseller that rocked mid-Victorian England returns to print for the first time in a century!

The government feared him. Rival authors like Charles Dickens, whom he outsold, despised him. The literary establishment did its best to write him out of literary history. But when George W.M. Reynolds, journalist, political reformer, Socialist, and novelist, died in 1879, even his critics were forced to acknowledge the truth of his obituary, which declared that he was the most popular writer of his time. And The Mysteries of London, which was published in 1844 in the "penny dreadful" format of weekly installments sold for a penny each, was his masterpiece and greatest success, selling 50,000 copies a week and over a million more when published in volume form.

The Mysteries of London is a sprawling tableau, seeking to depict life as Reynolds saw it in mid-Victorian London and expose what he viewed as gross injustice toward the poor. Some of the notable storylines involve Richard Markham and Eliza Sydney, two virtuous but ingenuous youths inveigled into the fraudulent schemes of rogues; George Montague, a libertine who appears literally out of nowhere and nearly overnight becomes one of the richest and most powerful men in London; Anthony Tidkins, the "Resurrection Man," a ruthless murderer and body-snatcher; and Ellen Monroe, an impoverished girl forced to submit to the worst degradations to earn money to feed her elderly father. The story takes us from royal drawing rooms, offices of cabinet ministers, and chambers of Parliament to the bowels of Newgate prison, the workhouse, and the lowest of taverns and gambling dens as Reynolds unfolds his thrilling plot, which never flags for an instant over the course of nearly 1,200 pages.

This edition, the first in over 100 years, includes the unabridged text of the complete first series of The Mysteries, including its illustrations, more than fifty in all, and features a new foreword by Victorian scholar Louis James and annotations by Dr. Dick Collins.

Description : Picking up right where the first volume left off, this second volume of George W.M. Reynolds's The Mysteries of London continues and concludes the epic story. The virtuous hero, Richard Markham, is hot on the trail of the ferocious villain Anthony Tidkins, the "Resurrection Man", while the enigmatic George Montague Greenwood continues his rise to wealth and power. And in this volume, we meet new characters: Katherine Wilmot, an innocent girl falsely accused of murder; Gibbet, the deformed son of the public executioner; Lord Ravensworth, whose dastardly brother Gilbert Vernon plots his demise; the Marquis of Holmesford, a debauched libertine; young Albert Egerton, whose fortune becomes the target of the notorious rogues Arthur Chichester and Sir Rupert Harborough; and many more.

From the majestic ballrooms of Buckingham Palace and the great houses of the aristocracy to the lowest drinking and gambling dens and the bowels of Newgate prison and Bethlem madhouse, Reynolds's novel sweeps the reader along at a breakneck pace, leaving no part of the great metropolis unexplored as it uncovers the sensational mysteries of Victorian London.

Originally published as a "penny dreadful" and sold in weekly installments for a penny each, The Mysteries of London was the best-selling novel of its era, selling more than 50,000 copies per week and over a million in the course of a decade. But as readers of this new edition will discover, Reynolds's novel is no mere antiquarian curiosity: it is an unputdownable page-turner and a classic of Victorian fiction that deserves to be ranked with Dickens's Bleak House and Trollope's The Way We Live Now. This edition reprints the unabridged text of the 1846 first edition, including all its illustrations, and includes a new introduction by Mary L. Shannon

Book Episode Six – Excerpt
Penny Dread
Penny was alone with nothing except her thoughts. Quietly she tried to rationalize how she’d let herself get taken to a second location. ‘I should have taken those classes in self-defense when I had the chance,’ Penny scolded silently. She didn’t earn enough as a research analyst to stock away any savings. She’d used most of her emergency cash to visit in Chicago. A lot that had done.

Since she'd been in town she had seen her cousin’s lifeless hand on a slab in a morgue. Then she’d witnessed her cousin’s cop boyfriend get whacked by a dude who looked like the mongoloid zombie from the Which Witch Is Witch episode from the cartoon Scooby Doo.

Description : “A delightful combination of race-against-the-clock medical mystery and outwit-the-bad-guys adventure.” Publishers Weekly, Starred
 
Eel has troubles of his own: As an orphan and a “mudlark,” he spends his days in the filthy River Thames, searching for bits of things to sell. He’s being hunted by Fisheye Bill Tyler, and a nastier man never walked the streets of London. And he’s got a secret that costs him four precious shillings a week to keep safe. But even for Eel, things aren’t so bad until that fateful August day in 1854—the day the deadly cholera (“blue death”) comes to Broad Street.
 
Everyone believes that cholera is spread through poisonous air. But one man, Dr. John Snow, has a different theory. As the epidemic surges, it’s up to Eel and his best friend, Florrie, to gather evidence to prove Dr. Snow’s theory—before the entire neighborhood is wiped out.

It In this exclusive serial killer piece, we get a detailed view into the life of an enticing character called Dale Sturgis. Around him were two bodies and a lot more blood, as if the corpses had been dragged along the cement.

The first one was a few feet to his left and facing the ground, the other was several metres beyond his feet and leaning on his side, facing away from him. His breathing was hurried; a few strands of his light auburn hair fell onto his face. He got to his feet quickly. Speeding off from the scene he quickly began to unbutton his shirt.

As he ran he made sure to hop over the blood to keep from leaving a trail. Once his shirt was off, he scrunched it into a ball as he sprinted. And that was basically the life of Dale Sturgis who was sixteen and a Year Ten student. He is also the most dangerous and wanted serial killer in his city of three million people. Scared and in denial, he tries to live his normal teenage life under the constant threat of getting caught for crimes he wants no part in.
