Summary: This novel is set in the Agricultural Hall, Islington, in 1879, where a bizarre six-day endurance race takes place. â€œWobblesâ€ became popular on both sides of the Atlantic in the 1880s.
A strange collection of so-called â€œproven pedestriansâ€ starts at 1am on a November Monday morning. By Tuesday one of them is dead. Tetanus from infection of a foot blister is suspected at first, but when Sergeant Cribb from Scotland Yard is called in he discovers that strychnine was being given as a stimulant. This is only the first of a series of revelations.
