Product Description

Review

"...well-observed characters... bring to life a violent but vital society of astonishing contradictions." (New York Times Book Review)"

From the Inside Flap

After thirteen-year-old Agnes Fisher faints at school, her teacher, the young and still idealistic Amy Slade, is shocked to discover in the girl's desk two stereoscopic photographs. One is of a dead baby in its cradle, and on the back Agnes has scrawled a terrible message. Worse, the other photograph is of Agnes in a pose captioned "What Mr. Newly Wed Really Wants." When Agnes doesn't show up at school the next day, her teacher takes the two photographs to the police. Murdoch, furious at the sexual exploitation of such a young girl, resolves to find the photographer - and to put him behind bars.
"Night's Child is the fifth novel in Maureen Jennings's highly praised historical mystery series. Two of the stories have already been adapted for the small screen, in acclaimed movies aired by the Bravo network. Another four movies are in development - good news for Jennings's fast-growing number of avid fans. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

By Nicola Mansfield HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on March 23 2013
Format: Paperback
The seven books in this series have been re-issued with matching covers taken from the television series, which is pleasing for fans of the show but not always appropriate for the later books in the series as the characters shown are not all present once the series progresses. This is actually my first read in this series but I'm no stranger to Murdoch. I've watched the three movies which are based completely on the first three books in the series and I've watched the occasional episode of the television show which is not based on any particular book but is based on the characters from the books. So as I read my fist acting Detective Murdoch mystery I was met with a cast of familiar characters and felt right at home. I really enjoyed the book which set in Victorian Toronto Canada involves a crime centering around a ring of child pornography photographers whose crimes escalate to exploitation and much worse up to and including murder. This is one of Murdoch's most deplorable cases and has many sidelines as well such as rising feminism, a unique form of labour union and Murdoch's continuous struggles with his love life. The case wasn't exactly a mystery as we knew who one culprit was fairly early but the other was a surprise at the end and the book ends off with Murdoch's life taking on a whole new set of circumstances. A great read for those wanting something just a little more than a cozy (but not too much) and for Victorian era fans. Will most certainly be getting around to reading this whole series one of these days!

Great story with an ending that was not expected. It held my interest and kept me guessing as to what was happening. Highly recommend.
