The_fifth_christmas_5

Gilbert is dying. Well, at least Gilbert — Lord Hadley — believes he is dying. He was cursed you see, by that Holy Man in India, in 1882. The old Sadhu condemned poor Gilbert to suffer hellish sicknesses — torments of body and mind — for four years and then, in the last year, to die in his agony. It is 1909, and for the past four Christmases Gilbert has suffered those vary afflictions and with increasing intensity. And now, the curse is once more upon him. Perhaps too late, he calls upon Gerard de Montclaire to sort curse from crime, cruelty from cowardice, in one of the great French detective’s most challenging investigations. In the end, Montclaire his associate, Colonel Sir Francis FitzMaurice, will discover unspeakable murders and an insatiable appetite for revenge. But, he and Fitz must work fast. This is The Fifth Christmas.

    You should have a competition – who was the greatest star of the late Victorian and Edwardian era? I would put my heart behind Sarah Bernhardt but that may be because I know Bernhardt very well and Edna May not at all.

      The list would vary based on the style of theater! Edna May was a very popular musical comedy star, whereas Sarah Bernhardt was a very popular dramatic actress.
