A fine case of murder, projected against a compelling historical background. --The New York Times Book Review

London, 1879. Crowds have gathered at Islington's chilly Agricultural Hall to place their bets on who will become the next world champion in a six-day, 500-mile speedwalking race, the "wobble." When one of the highly favored contenders dies under suspicious circumstances, Sergeant Cribb also has a race on his hands--to pursue a ruthless murderer.
