Inside this Book – The heat moved like a feral thing through the streets, fetid and inescapable. Chief Detective Inspector Charles Field, sweating in his shiny black greatcoat, ducked into the shadowed portico of a house near St. Albans Street, just bordering the Mall. Because of the view it offered, as well as the protection from the elements, it was the spot he invariably used to monitor royal processions along this stretch. The horses pulling the royal carriage plodded solemnly, resignedly, their tails flicking at the flies. Victoria and Albert, their faces glimpsed within the open coach, had a wilted look, but they seemed to be conversing nevertheless. Today, given the heat and the mundane nature of Her Majesty’s errand (she and the Prince Consort were to open a public bath in the West End), the crowd was understandably thin. But because the Queen already had survived several attempts on her life, the royal coach was accompanied by a couple of the Horse Guard. A few police constables, Field’s men, walked here and there along the route, watching the spectators and licking perspiration from beneath their mustaches.
Inside this book –The Darwin Affair PDF Book by Tim Mason – He hadn’t slept the night before, or had dreamt he hadn’t slept, hearing the onrushing iron wheels of the new railroad approaching at a frightening speed but never arriving, hour after hour. Then he was in a palatial home, walking behind a kitchen maid—or was it a cook?—who held something terrible close to her breast—what was it?—as she proceeded slowly from one corridor to the next. As slowly as she moved, he never could catch up with her. Somewhere a piano was playing “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God.” In the light of day, on the job, he had been frustrated in his ongoing pursuit of a headmaster, strongly suspected of poisoning his children’s governess. Throughout the day Kilvert and Llewellyn had waited expectantly for their superior to tell them about his interview with Karl Marx. When Llewellyn finally cleared his throat and started to ask outright, Field had told him to shut it in a voice that had been audible throughout the station house. Now here was his servant, standing at his door, wringing the hem of her apron and dancing from one foot to the other. “Master!” she shrieked. “Hush, Bessie!” “There’s a woman!” she said, lowering her voice to a whisper loud enough to be heard across the road and jerking her head spasmodically in the direction of the house. “And a man!” Field digested this useful information and hurried past her into his home, Bessie following him down the steps to the kitchen.
