The action in David Morrell's Murder as a Fine Art might not be as explosive as his debut novel, First Blood (the genesis for the Rambo film series), but it's every bit as thrilling. Murder as a Fine Art is set in Victorian England and follows Thomas De Quincey, the suspect in a series of murders. A drug addict, De Quincey, is innocent, of course, and trying desperately to clear his name but moving from one opium-induced fog to another is slow going.
