Review: THE OBSESSION OF DR. PENDERGRASS: MURDER IN WHITECHAPEL by John David Buchanan
In the late Victorian Era, London was a cultural and social beacon. Seat of an Empire, governed by a long-widowed crowned head genetically connected to thrones throughout Europe, London expanded, seemingly blessed both financially and socially. But with great wealth and abundance, inevitably there is also great suffering, poverty, and crime. One man surely cannot combat it all, when Sir Robert Peel' s bobbies cannot succeed. But one determined and diligent man will never cease to combat the evils in the darkness and ugly forgotten slums of London.
THE OBSESSION OF DR. PENDERGRASS is a sensorily stimulating narrative, a close look at Victorian London in the latter 19th century, and an examination of Whitechapel' s most well-known denizen.
