The Gordon Riots of 1780 drove London into total chaos. ‘King Mob’ controlled the streets and anarchy distinguished very little between the innocent and the guilty. Barnaby Rudge is an intricate tale of mystery and suspense. An unsolved double murder begins the novel, forming the foundation for conspiracies that devolve into blackmail, kidnapping, and vengeance. The riots force the masses to take sides. Families oppose one another. Apprentices betray the masters. Religions splinter. As London devolves into pandemonium, Barnaby must confront the perils of his past. Using detailed descriptions of public rioting and private terror, Dickens draws the reader into a story of peculiar secrets and betrayals. Barnaby Rudge is an enthralling tale of historical fiction with raw emotion and a powerful plot.
