Jubilee Summer, June 1887. Britain is deep in lavish celebration of Empire. That same month, in the East End of London a quiet young man, recently arrived from Warsaw, is accused of murdering an Angel. Two writers at the start of their career - Z, a brilliant Anglo-Jewish novelist and Maggie, a fiery social reformer - are brought together in a remarkable encounter as they investigate a crime that would change their lives and their vision of themselves, England and the world. Eight Weeks in the Summer of Victoria's Jubilee is a brilliant study of London's East End at the turn of the 19th century and a fascinating exploration into a murder case that shook the very foundations of British justice.
