Description - The Camden Town Murder by John Barber

This is the story of the victim; along with an account of the times in which she lived, and the circumstances surrounding her death. Is this another crime of the imagination? Recent books have seen parallels between The Camden Town Murder, and the Whitechapel killings of Jack the Ripper, and The Peasenhall Mystery of 1902. Analogies have been made between Walter Sickert and the Ripper crimes, and The Camden Town Murder; both cases said to be crimes of the imagination, with particular suspects being artists, with a penchant for the seamier side of life. John Barber presents the reader with a modern day investigation, analysing and retracing the events with the story's protagonists; as well as bringing to light vital clues which, back then had escaped the judges' attention . This is a social history and an account of the human condition of the people living in the Victorian and Edwardian eras, the upper classes and their domestic servants, the 'fallen women', the music-halls, the artists, and the demi-monde. All these moving against alternating backgrounds of greys, black and crimson, and enraptured with the vapours of wormwood.
