I enjoy reading Anne Perry and was not disappointed in this novel dealing with the darker side of Victorian England. James Wentworth is not feeling the Christmas joy this year. His son, Lucien, has been lured into the world of drugs and sex. He asks his friend, Henry Rathbone, to help him locate his son. With the help of Squeaky Robinson, a reformed brothel keeper and Crow, a mysterious slum doctor, he finds himself in a London that he knows nothing about dealing with people has sunk so low that I enjoy reading Anne Perry and was not disappointed in this novel dealing with the darker side of Victorian England.

This is the story of James Wentworth's search for his disappeared son. Their search delves into the underworld of drugs and prostitution in order to rescue Lucien. View all 6 comments.
May 28, Irina rated it it was ok. Not a type of story I would describe as Christmassy. Nor something I'd like to read over festive season.

Nov 09, Diane rated it liked it. Love Anne Perry--her detailed descriptions from facial expression to mannerisms to dress are incredible. The book was interesting because it really delved into the darker side of life. Mar 04, Kathy Albright rated it did not like it. Very tedious read. Twist on the Prodigal Son.

Another delightful entry in this Christmas series! Henry Rathbone searches for his friend's missing son in the sinister depths of underworld London. Thoroughly enjoyable as always! Mar 19, Kenneth Hardcastle rated it liked it Shelves: mystery , audiobook , historical-fiction , class. Guy asks a guy to find a guy.
Finder guy enlists the help of two more guys and a random teenage girl in his quest. They search the gutters and back alleys of s London, interrogating mostly women about the whereabouts of four persons whose existence seems mostly in legend. They eventually find a guy who may help lead them to answers, but can they stomach the truths they will learn? This book is grossly mistitled, series or not. It is a journey that takes place during Christmas… but there is no Guy asks a guy to find a guy. It is a journey that takes place during Christmas… but there is no mention of the season aside from a few scene-setting details, with an unearned redemptive hope at the end.
There will be a lot of people who will pick this up hoping for something light and fluffy, and will be burned by the grim tale told. That said, I enjoyed it well enough. The book can claim an interesting ensemble cast, but Squeaky Robinson emerged to be the most surprising sort of protagonist, and had a good arc. The style and language were accessible for a Victorian-era story. Dec 26, Pamela Mingle rated it liked it. Many years ago, I was an avid reader of Anne Perry's Victorian mysteries. I drifted away, for some reason and never returned. Unbeknownst to me, she had written a number of Christmas mysteries.

One caught my eye at the library recently, so I thought I'd give it a try. Sorry to say, it just didn't work for me.

It involved the rescue of a young man from the hellholes of debauchery in London. Initially, three men are involved in the rescue, but they pick up a young girl along the way. After they found Lucien the young man in question it simply did not make sense to me that they would linger in this environment and attempt to exonerate him from having committed a murder there's no body and no real evidence.
Wouldn't sensible people remove him, and then try to solve the mystery?
It's foggy in London during the story, and that was how I felt about the plot. Dec 23, Kristie J. The main thing that makes this a Christmas story is that it starts 10 days before Christmas and ends on Christmas Eve. There are brief references to Christmas, but mostly the story follows three men as they explore the ugliest part of Victorian London, the brothels, opium dens, and worse areas of depravity, searching for a friend's son who is lost in that world. It's told in a genteel style so that it's not too graphic, but still disturbing enough.
