In the TLS

Daniel Karlin has a scathing but very funny (and also rather informative for the would-be historical novelist, these are questions I have thought about many a time...) essay in the TLS on D. J. Taylor's Victorian mystery, no subscription required. It concludes with this sentence: "The real mystery of this 'Victorian mystery' is - as Trollope might have said - Why Did He Do It?" (No sign of this book on US Amazon, I guess it is having UK release only for now?)
