9780779257423: Sergeant Cribb: The Horizontal Witness


Unravelling the mysterious and lurid crimes of Victorian society

Based on the novels of prize-winning author Peter Lovesey and filled with lavish period detail and jaw-dropping plot twists, the adventures of Sergeant Cribb cast a spotlight on the dark underbelly of Victorian life.

From the vulgar brothels of London’s fogbound streets to the respectable royal apartments of Windsor Castle, Sergeant Cribb maintains a level head and a wry sense of humour to unravel complex crimes in Queen Victoria’s England. A detective of Scotland Yard’s newly formed Criminal Investigation Department, Cribb receives little support for his efforts from his superiors. Wearing his trademark bowler hat and squeaky boots, Cribb relies on his own shrewdness and the plodding assistance of Constable Thackeray to expose the vile deeds of Victorian criminals. approx. 298 mins. col.

Includes: The Horizontal Witness / Something Old, Something New / The Hand That Rocks the Cradle / The Last Trumpet / The Choir That Wouldn’t Sing / Murder Old Boy?
