Charlotte Dymond Murder (The) by Pat Munn

This is essentially a study in social history - a look at a rural community in a remote part of the British Isles during the first half of the 19th century. So much is known about the upper crust of early Victorian society but it is only when this is broken open, usually by violence, that we are permitted a glimpse of the lower levels.
