There are some differences, of course, but it was still an enjoyable read. What I like is that these stories set in Victorian times parallel things that are happening today. Showing that the more things change - the more they stay the same.
There were a couple of mysteries going on in this book and finding out how Murdoch solves both of them is fun. It seemed like this wasn't a very long book - but it is actually 312 pages. It just went seemed to go by faster than that.
It seems to me that the portrayal of that time period is pretty accurate. The book was well written and kept my interest.
Those that have only watched the series - be aware that Murdoch is quite a bit less straight laced in the books than he is in the series.
poor people - It has a great mystery plot and wonderful people !
