Dorrington is a charming East End criminal, now part of the London establishment, with a very successful private detective business in the prosperous West End of the Victorian metropolis. The clients Dorrington meets are themselves self-serving, corrupt and often criminal and the Metropolitan Police are almost entirely absent.
The result is a thrillingly chaotic and unsettling portrait of a late-Victorian London pervaded by greed and crime, which foreshadows the hardboiled detective genre. Clare Clarke is assistant professor of nineteenth-century popular literature at Trinity College Dublin.
