Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1994

All sorts of people are attracted to Limehouse, the slum district of London, in 1880: writers, actors, prostitutes, and those in search of them. How close do they come in the gas-lit, fog-shrouded streets to the famous "Limehouse gollem," or murderer? Thanks to narrator David Case, as close as our own skin! "Lambeth Marsh Lizzie," the cockney actress; Karl Marx, the German intellectual; and Dan Leno, the Charlie Chaplin of his time, all breathe the foul air of this dark world. By mixing fact and fiction, Ackroyd has created a perfectly authentic Dickensian world, but David Case's natural sense for accent brings that world to life as he narrates with the suspense and tempo of the best detective fiction.
