Publisher's Summary

Number 4 Euston Square was a respectable boardinghouse, like many others in Victorian London. But beneath this ordinary veneer lurked a murderous darkness. 

On 8th May 1879, the corpse of former resident Matilda Hacker was uncovered in the coal cellar. The investigation that followed stripped bare the shadow-side of Victorian domesticity, throwing the lives of everyone within into an extraordinary maelstrom. 

Someone in Number 4 Euston Square must have killed Matilda Hacker. How could the murderer prove so elusive? 

Best-selling author Sinclair McKay delves into this intriguing story to shed light on a mystery that baffled Scotland Yard.
