The Cabinet of Curiosities

by Preston Child Douglas Lincoln

A series of horrific crimes in 1880's New York is brought to life again through a newspaper article and it now seems that a copycat killer is on the loose. Past and present swirl together with dark foreboding as FBI Special Agent Pendergast searches for clues in the dusty archives of the Museum of Natural History, and the hidden corners of his own family's history.
It sounds like a Victorian 'Penny Dreadful' but the story is a real page turner with plenty of suspense and details that the authors leave off just in time for your imagination to take over, and that is far better than explicit gore.
This will definitely keep you reading into those small hours.
