Lawrence’s novel shows readers a darker side to 19th century London that persists of villains, smugglers, and backstabbers in a boy – eats – boy world The Cannibals (2005). While the first book had hints of Dickens in it, in a most subtle way I see hints of Hugo's Les Misérables in this book. Not the story per se, but the Ideas propelling it. Like Fate & injustice.
