Re: RARA-AVIS: Hawksmoor

"From Hell" is closer to noir than "Hawksmoor" or other Ackroyd's novels, but even that isn't hardboiled. Very frightening, of course. The note section of "From Hell" has been published as its own volume. Apropos, Ackroyd has written a novel about Jack the Ripper killings,
"Whitechapel Murders" or something like that. Try "Chatterton", if you like intellectual word play and deception.
