Who would like it? Anyone who likes good old-fashioned mysteries or mysteries set in the Victorian period might enjoy this book. It is really nonstop action and ther eis quite an element of suspense that is built up that lasts to the end. Overall, a very fun read -- a great book for a stormy day.
In addition to his entertaining name, Beatty is a crime-fighting whiz like his hero, in this case approached by the lovely Miss Meredith to investigate the suspicious death of her father. Beatty's efforts lead him to the repulsive Dr. Couchman, clearly up to no good, and the enormous Brookwood Cemetery, a veritable city of the dead-- hence the title-- where eerie revelations await. These developments mark only the beginning of a roller coaster tale filled with gunshots, flashing knives, sword canes, and bizarre deaths.
With his faithful assistant Dotterell (a character nothing like Watson), Beatty unravels a series of seemingly disconnected strands, leading the reader to an exciting climax where the shocking truth is illuminated. Along the way Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard makes an appearance, along with a wealth of other interesting aides and murderous opponents. The mystery at the heart of the story is deep and intriguing. Beatty's willingness, and ability, to withhold vital information from the authorities-- a common Copper quirk-- strains plausibility toward the end, yet the device works better here than in other tales.
The spooky Stephen Fabian color cover, plus the detailed black and white interior illustrations, are worth owning in their own right, and perfectly enhance the book. Needless to say, it is very well written. If one enjoys this kind of story, then this is the story to get.
