[nice tight clean copy, appears unread, no discernible wear; jacket a tiny bit worn at spine ends, faint soiling here and there]. Subtitled "Being an Account of the Macbeth Murders and the Strange Events Surrounding Them; A Secret Victorian Journal, Attributed to Wilkie Collins, Discovered and Edited by William J. Palmer." The author's first novel, a literary/detective pastiche set in 1851 and exploring "the relationship of [Charles] Dickens and [Wilkie] Collins with Inspector William Field of the Metropolitan Protectives of London, one of the first professional detectives. Seamlessly interweaving fact with fancy, what did happen with what could have happened, the plot draws Dickens, Collins, and Field together to solve a brutal murder -- a murder that has its roots in the Covent Garden production of 'Macbeth.'"
