Mayhem, Murder, and Mystery in Victorian London with Karen Odden

Mayhem, Murder, and Mystery in Victorian London with Karen Odden

She will share fascinating historical facts from her research into nineteenth-century scandals at Scotland Yard, the tides of the Thames, thieving gangs, bare-knuckles boxing, lady novelists, and more–all of which shaped both books in the Inspector Corravan mysteries: Down a Dark River and the sequel, Under a Veiled Moon (October 2022).
