The Meaning of Night: A Confession (Google eBook)
"Superb.... An engrossing and complicated tale...that touches on every aspect of Victorian society."—Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World"After killing the red-haired man, I took myself off to Quinn's for an oyster supper." So begins the "enthralling" (Booklist, starred review) and "ingenious" (Boston Globe) story of Edward Glyver, booklover, scholar, and murderer. A chance discovery convinces Glyver that greatness awaits him. His path to win back what is rightfully his leads him to Evenwood, one of England's most enchanting country houses, and a woman who will become his obsession.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit! Meticulously researched, the historical detail did bog down the book, but that was really its only flaw. The characters, and their surprising actions, were fascinating and the intricate plot moved unpredictably. I really enjoyed this, though when I was halfway through I originally had no intention of reading the sequel (it does get a little slow in parts), but now that I have finished, I am quite interested in reading it! All in all, it was very well done!
