It’s time to gear up for OverDrive’s next “Big Library Read” title—The Darwin Affair by Tim Mason. This title will be available for simultaneous use through the BRIDGES collection from June 22—July 13.
London, June 1860: When an assassination attempt is made on Queen Victoria, and a petty thief is gruesomely murdered moments later one block away, Chief Detective Inspector Charles Field quickly surmises that these crimes are connected to an even more sinister plot. Was Victoria really the assassin’s target? Are those closest to the Crown hiding something? And who is the shadowy figure witnesses describe as having lifeless, coal-black eyes?
