    • My hat's off to this author. The first book was okay, but this one was really good. Characters are good (sometimes comic in the midst of the suspense), well drawn; dialogue is really awesome, and the story itself is intriguing and will definitely hold your interest. I hope Mr. Gray wants to write a third in this series; I'll definitely be waiting. Would I recommend it? You bet. If you like thriller-type stories set in Victorian England, you'll like this one's a brief peek with no spoilers:Edmund [...]

    • If you favor Victorian thrillers, White Stone Day, by John MacLachian Gray is a perfect one: believable historic setting, endearing but flawed protagonist, numerous, fiendish predators and spunky, innocent young girls. Oblique references to Alice, Wonderland and Lewis Carroll aka Charles Lutwidge Dodgson abound. The writing is superb and the plot engrossing. Although this is the second Edmund Whitty, correspondent book it can stand alone; I thoroughly enjoyed it without even knowing the first ex [...]

    • I love Victorian fiction and I enjoy crime thrillers, so I thought this would be right up my alleybut I just couldn't get into it. The writing style just didn't appeal to me after I read a couple of chapters and skimmed a few more. Oh, well

    • If the highest praise you can give a book is that it leaves you wanting to read more, then White Stone Day deserves top accolades. It has just about everything you need in a novel: a gripping plot, a strong sense of time and place that nonetheless doesn't overwhelm the proceedings, a sure narrative drive, a diverse and well-drawn supporting cast of characters, and perhaps most important, an intriguing and entertaining protagonist. White Stone Day would have been a very good book with any other m [...]

    • Edmund Whitty, correspondent for the Victorian-era newspaper The Falcon, has fallen on hard times. Thanks to a mole in his office, all his story ideas are being stolen out from under him, many ending up published by his arch-rival, the journalist Fraser of Dodd's. This inability to sell a story has left Mr. Whitty in rather desperate straits and thus in no position to turn down an offer from a mysterious American gentleman he meets in a public bath.This meeting is just the start of Whitty's adve [...]

    • A great book. I preferred it to John MacLachlan Gray's first novel ''The Fiend Inhuman'. It felt as though Gray was more focused on plotting this time through (Fiend tended to wander) while his characters engaged more than the previous book, particularly the CS Lewis 'inspired' Rev. Boltbyn, his young charges Emma and Lydia and of course the dapper journalist Edmund Whitty with his proclivities for drink and medicinal snuff. Gray's greatest strength is his skill in evoking an unromantic version [...]

    • "The murder of innocence," the dark side of Victoriana, a detailed parallel with the bizarre life of Lewis Carol -- this would be a near perfect book, if it had not been written in present tense. I understand the device as a way of letting us poor readers "see" the story as it unfolds, like a drama or a film, as if we were right there with it happening all around us as we read. But too many times, it just becomes awkward. I even get my tenses muddled just talking about this book.But I loved it n [...]

    • The first book in this short series, The Fiend in Human, was very much in the style of the old penny-dreadfuls. It was great fun but I found I preferred this novel as Gray moves into darker, more Gothic territory.Despite a relatively short length, there is a labyrinthine plot that unfolds between London and Oxfordshire.

    • Key historical figure is Roger Bacon and his coded book of science and nature secrets

    • wasn't bad and plot seemed okay, but not my style somehow.

    • Just finished this book. It is incredibly well written and the pace is great. I was a bit worried about the plot as it deals with child pornography, but it is well handled and not at all offensive.

    • As recommended many months ago by William Gibson on his blog. Dark, Victorian and Delicious
