Book Title: "The Pleasures of Men”

Raven Rating: 5

Review: In the rousing age of Victorian England comes a terrifying story of mystery and murder. This novel is on par with some of the darkest tales of Jack the Ripper, I found myself cringing from the detailed horrific scenes of young girls murdered by a killer dubbed the ‘Man of Crows.’ The heroine is a young girl herself, named Catherine Sorgeiul.

Going on her own mysterious hunt for the offender, she soon finds herself a possible target. The story is haunting, superbly written and supremely original. Kate Williams mixes the Victorian time period well with intrigue, mystery and macabre. A perfect read!
