Beyond the civilized world of Harrod's and high tea, there is a darker side to London -- a demi-monde of fog-enshrouded midnights and alleys eerily lit by gas lamps, stained with the blood of some of the most unspeakable crimes in history. This collection of stories takes us on a guided tour of this "other" London. Visit the haunts of criminals like Jack the Ripper, Dr. Fu Manchu, and Professor Moriarty; as well as the residences of their greatest nemeses--such intrepid crimefighters as Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, and Lord Peter Wimsey. Twenty-two stories from Robert Arthur, Sax Rohmer, Thomas Burke, P.D. James, Patricia Moyes, Carter Dickson, Michael Hilbert, Gerald Kersh, Allan Prior, Graham Greene, Ruth Rendell, Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, and R. Austin Freeman, among others.
