Why read it?

1 author picked 18 Tiny Deaths as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This is a biography of one of the unsung heroines of forensic science, and a lady who should never have ventured into the world of work at all. A socialite born in 1870 is an unlikely feminist hero, but she not only made the investigation of violent crimes her life’s work, she revolutionised the methodologies. Once you’ve read this book you’ll never look at a doll’s house the same way again.     

From Christine's list on for writers of Victorian mysteries.
