Year 16, Book 46

46. The Art of the English Murder: From Jack the Ripper and Sherlock Holmes to Agatha Christie and Alfred Hitchcock by Lucy Worsley

Lucy Worsley look at the rise of the fascination with true crime in 18th century England through the development of crime and detective fiction. There were some interesting things in the book, but I found that the book struggled to hold my interest. The only reason I finished reading it was because it was for a book club. I give it a 5 out of 10.
