Underworld London A fascinating portrait of the capital's dark and criminal underbelly throughout history Full description

Amazon

Tales of crime-ridden slums and the activities of pickpockets, garotters, swindlers and pornographers loomed large in the minds of Victorian Londoners, and those aspects of the city's past continue to fascinate today's readers of historical fiction. Novelist Ross Gilfillan presents his research into the real-life stories of London's poorest and most desperate residents in the mid-19th century, and describes the authorities' changing approaches to the prevention and punishment of crime.
