Crime abounded in late Victorian and Edwardian times--from the streets of London to the country houses of nobility; from the royal apartments of Vienna to the hotel rooms of quiet Copenhagen. Sherlock Holmes took on many of the era's crooks, killers, blackmailers, and schemers, but so did the fictional sleuths of other celebrated writers of the time. (from container.)
